PRESS RELEASE: Joan Curtis at Brandon Artists Guild in Brandon

An exhibition entitled Greener Grass, with richly colored drawings by Joan Curtis, is featured during the September/October foliage season (September 2 - November 2, 2011) at the Brandon Artists Guild gallery.

The artist explains that the Greener Grass title may be interpreted a few ways. The pictures, which seem to tell stories, can convey a gentle sense of longing or yearning for “greener grass.” Alternatively, many of the images are so serenely bucolic that we imagine the scenes depicted to be the “greener grass” we seek.

The artist, in her visionary figurative work, often conjures up the feeling that a Quest is taking place.

This body of work, created since January 2011, comprises colored-pencil drawings on archival Arches paper. The surprise for the viewer is the layering of papers, a technique which allows a shallow three-dimensional appearance.

The public is always invited to BAG opening receptions; this one will be Friday, September 2nd, from 5 to 7 PM.
