PRESS RELEASE: Jan Ghiringhelli at the Drawing Board in Montpelier

Montpelier native, Jan Ghiringhelli, will present The Still Life: Flora & Fruit, the theme of her new show at the Drawing Board in Montpelier.

Painting Alla Prima in oil & acrylic, the representational artist paints from life close up floral & fruit portraits using a shallow depth of field. There is a quiet beauty in the shapes & colors of her simple and ordinary objects. Working on a toned surface, she lightly blocks in her shapes and the painting evolves shape to shape without any preliminary drawing.

Ghiringhelli also works in the genres of landscape and the figure.

The show runs August 1st - 31st.
