Forest Sparkles, by Constance Baltuck, 30" x 40", Acrylic on Gessoboard.
Think big! Thanks to support from the Rasmuson Foundation, this past year Constance Baltuck has been thinking and working LARGE. The results of her "breakthrough" exploration are on display at the City Museum for the month of December. Constance says that an idea in her mind as she worked on these paintings was about how being involved with nature, through art making and intense observation, leads to an appreciation and a desire for conservation. She states that "hopefully this leads to thoughtful, respectful and mindful attitudes towards life on planet Earth. Maybe drawing plants can save the world!"
An opening reception takes place during Gallery Walk on Friday, December 5th from 4:30-7:00. Constance will speak about art and nature at a Coffee & Collections program on December 13 and will teach a class about drawing plants on December 14. Click "Public Programs" for more details.
