This year marks the 100th Anniversary of our country's incredible National Parks system, "America's Best Idea" according to legendary documentary film maker, Ken Burns. To celebrate, we are featuring an exciting collection of paintings from Lori Putnam acquired from her plein air visits to the many of these parks over the last two years.
"Landscape painters today and throughout the history of the National Parks Service serve and have served as explorers, historians, documentarians, conservationists and reporters". - Lori Putnam
Marleen De Waele-De Bock is a Belgian artist, who has lived in Brentwood, TN for the last 15 years, who teaches 'Principles of Design' at O'More College of Design. Her curriculum covers everything from visual unity to form, and her new exhibit is based on these time-tested theories. Precise repetition and rhyme create harmony and balance on her new canvases with a fresh sense. The artist is also creating a series drawings and prints for the exhibit, inspired by the same 'Principles of Design' theme. It will be a very well thought out, cohesive exhibit with approximately 30 works. Click here to preview Marleen's work.
