Gallery owner’s art on displaySeptember 5, 2019
From Local Sources
ST. MEINRAD — Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery, is hosting an exhibit of still life paintings by Evansville artist and gallery owner Holly Storlie through Oct. 15. The exhibit features small paintings in oil executed in one sitting.
Storlie paints from observation, recording and organizing her perceptions while the paint is wet.
“My aim is not to accurately mirror the appearance of what is before me but rather to record an accumulation of moments, the changing dynamics of what I observe, the shifts of light and color,” she says.
The paintings are brightly colored and built with expressive marks born from keen observation.
Storlie earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Ringling College of Art and Design, Sarasota, Florida, and a Master of Fine Arts from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia. Her award-winning paintings have been exhibited widely and are in private collections throughout the United States. She has taught drawing and painting workshops, as well as family classes, at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. In June 2017, Storlie opened the Gamut Gallery in Evansville, where she teaches painting and drawing and maintains her studio.
For library hours, call 812-357-6401 or 800-987-7311, or visit the Archabbey Library’s website at www.saintmeinrad.edu/library/library-hours/.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. Those wishing to view the exhibit may want to arrive at least 30 minutes before closing time.
