Passage Through St. Lazare is a 24x20 oil by Shirley Fachilla.
I’m very proud to have work in the exhibit Portraying the Human Spirit at the
for the Arts in Bennington Center Vermont. It’s a
juried show of only 26 paintings which will be on display at the center from
August 2 through December 21. I’ll quote the center on the theme of the show, “Our
goal in jurying Portraying the Human Spirit was to find portraits that were
more than portraits…”
Each artist was asked to do an audio for their work explaining process, inspiration, etc. For me, the audio may have been more difficult than the painting! However, I was delighted to have the opportunity to put into words what this painting meant to me. Finding those words? Definitely, a challenge.
A bit about the Bennington: This year, the venue hosted the national juried show of Oil Painters of America, and every year has an invitational wildlife art exhibit that is probably the very best east of the Mississippi, perhaps the very best nationally.
Again I’m so honored to have work at the
in such a meaningful exhibit.
Here’s the link to the show.
