Sarah Hartshorne, Quiet Beauty

Sarah Hartshorne’s paintings in the Matrix gallery bring the beauty of nature indoors. Surrounded by her crisp oil paintings of serene water lilies, sunflowers and wooded trails, viewers forget that they are indoors. 

The large scale of her work and vividness of her imagery caused viewers to pour over the paintings, looking for brushstrokes, trying to figure out just how she does it. Her work explores the play of light and shadow, and brings her subjects alive with color. Viewers enjoyed talking with Hartshorne about her painting techniques, her use of color, and the imagery that she works from.

Thank you to all the volunteers, to those who came to the show, and to Jeff Simpson, photographer.
