Featuring Photographs from Julie Testwuide‘s “I am Free” series and Jane Cooper‘s “Spacious Skies” paintings and monotypes. Testwuide’s search, through her lens, for the wild and unshackled and Cooper’s exploration of atmospheric spaces between stillness and storm. Inhabited by sea, sky and land. Testwuide’s extraordinary images were captured on remote Sable Island in Nova Scotia, Cumberalnd Island, GA, Assateague, MD, Chincoteague, VA, Iceland, and on her Icelandic horse farm in Katonah, NY. Her next round of wild horses photography will include capturing the Przewalski horses in Mongolia, which are truly one of the wildest horse breeds in the world. Cooper’s works evolve from years exploring passages and coastlines. The Michigan lakes, Long Island Sound, South Carolina and the Atlantic Coast in Ireland. The two artists who have been friends for over 25 years, also completed a collaborative piece on canvas. Julie’s eye and camera captured a scene where the water meets the sky. Jane used her brushes and talent to enhance the image with strokes of oil paint, creating a combination of the two artists views of the horizon at sea.
“From veils of atmosphere, to expressive color, to darkest mystery, watercolor can convey nature in all its guises. The medium of watercolor is challenging enough that I can continue to paint my love of nature, while continuing to evolve as an artist” (Ellen Hopkins Fountain)
Ellen Hopkins Fountain is a renowned and award winning artist who finds inspiration in the vistas of the Hudson Valley and New England. The twenty-five works exhibited include landscapes, riverscapes and abstract watercolor paintings.
