“Oil Paintings from Life”
Another fabulous Exhibit at Oak&Oil, two very talented and accomplished artists, one on each side of the gallery, a juxtaposition of styles and themes.
On one side the energy and bustle of the city, with the vibrancy of city lights reflected in the wet pavement and back into windows and buildings, creating energy and movement; a reflection of Andy Hammerstein energetic, diversified artistic style.
On the other side of the gallery, the evocative images of open spaces, meadows, seascapes and bright barns reflecting Linda Puiatti’s painting style; her observation and study of light, and how it changes our daily landscape.
Over the span of three years Loretta Barnett and Diane Stendahl created about 100 Multimedia pieces, sending the works back and forth to each other, working on it individually, not knowing how the work would look like once it made its way back! A great visual display of two different styles, yet very cohesive and harmonious.
