LANDSCAPES: FOUR WAYS
JULY 16-AUGUST 13
RECEPTION FRIDAY, JULY 22, 5 TO 7PM

A unique exhibit of four women artists—Lori LaBerge, Teresa Pietsch, Simona Rosasco, and Kat Turczyn. The four ways are textiles, clay, glass, and oil painting. Each artist is translating her interpretation of “Landscapes” through her chosen medium.

Lori LaBerge has been studying textiles for over 15 years. For this exhibit she has created works that have been “inspired by a sense of place and the paths we follow in life, both physically and emotionally.” This sense has led to the exploration of working in plein air when she gathers her supplies and heads out “into the world that surrounds us.”

Ceramist Teresa Pietsch’s take on landscape comes from “nature and ideas that are centerd in life. “I look at the tree as a representation of experience and growth, the roots of a tree as they give support and nutrients, the leaves as a vision of life and its cycles.”

Simona Rosasco uses her  fused glass landscapes to “reflect the beauty of a cold snowy winter day, the winds moving clouds across the mountains, new life and color emerging from the earth on an early spring morning, the rich reds of autumn as the leaves cover the land and the white sands and surf of the beaches of my home town in Pensacola.”

And finally, Kat Turczyn. For her and her paintings, “everything is a challenge…but this passion gets me up in the morning and I am thrilled to be able to express my creativity this way.”

Four talented women, different backgrounds, different focuses, different mediums, but all with a deep respect for the nature that envelopes their every step, every breath they take. Join TRAC as we celebrate four views of “Landscapes” with four women artists—LaBerge, Pietsch, Rosasco, Turczyn.
