Special Artist Reception February 5th, 2009, 6:00 – 9:00 pm
Landscape artist Claudia Hartley brings to life her latest travels with her color-rich paintings featuring familiar landscapes of both the Western U.S. and Europe. Claudia is a detailed colorist, studying carefully the complimentary colors and portraying them in both her interiors and landscapes. With influence from Fauvists, such as Matisse, Hartley takes on a modern twist to landscape painting, giving her a unique style. Each work is invested with her brilliant strokes of color that bring a smile to any viewer.
