Grace Hessman, Landscape Artist


Throughout February you have the pleasure of viewing the pastel paintings of landscape artist Grace Hessman in our meeting room, Room L-129. She’s a 'plein air' painter, which means she doesn’t paint from reference photos in her cozy air-conditioned home studio. It means she plunks her easel down in the shifting soils of west Texas or beach Florida or the Oregon forest, with boots on to protect herself from cactus spines and driving heat and morning chills, to see, feel, and smell each nuance of the landscape she’s passionate about capturing on paper. When you see her work, I think you’ll catch that spirit. That’s Room L-129; throughout February.

Adult artists, on Thursday this week, drop your chores, bring your art supplies and your lunch and enjoy a relaxing day with other artists.

That's this Thursday, January 16, from 10 am to 3 pm--or whatever fraction of that you can come. All free; no registration needed.
