PRESS RELEASE: Margo Russell at the Red Mill Gallery in Johnson

An exhibit of paintings by Margo Russell at the Red Mill Gallery in Johnson, Vermont from August 24 - August 30.
Opening Reception, Wednesday August 24th at 7:00

Self taught painter Margo Russell grew up in Odessa, Texas and came to Vermont in 1996. A year later Don Sunseri invited her to work at G.R.A.C.E. in Hardwick (a community arts program) where she painted for a few years. After that she was employed at Out and About (an adult day services facility) in Morrisville in the kitchen, then used the Out and About art room as a painting studio.

Ms. Russell works exclusively from imagination, using and reusing the motif of houses, water and waterfalls, skies and fields as a hook to hang her ideas about color on. When she paints she works and re-works the colors, changing them constantly until the work is done.
