Sarha Hartshorne's first solo show at Matrix

Chris Herman did a wonderful job greeting everyone as they came in the door.

Here is Sarah Hartshorne, one of the most prolific artists I know!

This is Larry, her supportive husband.

People inside and outdoors had a great time at Sarah's opening.

Our lovely wine server, Cornelius!

Thank you all for making this evening so special.

Frontlit/Backlit - Paintings by Sarah Hartshorne

30 x 40"
Oil on Canvas

The Odd Couple
36 x 24"
Oil on Canvas

Hartshorne’s realistic oil paintings capture the unique in the ordinary, the beauty in the mundane. Although this particular exhibition focuses on her mouth-watering still lives, she paints what so often goes unnoticed at our hectic modern pace: the unusual angle of a fork next to a gracefully draped napkin, or, the way a wine glass reflects the nearby candle light. Hartshorne explores the play of light and shadow, and brings her subjects alive with color. This is her first solo show at Matrix Fine Art.

Exhibition dates: April 2 – May 1
(Early Bird Preview: March 30 – April 2)

First Friday Artscrawl Reception: April 2, 5 – 8:00 PM
