Painters Elizabeth Awalt and Stoney Conley have brought their shared visions together in a show entitled In Nature, an exhibit opening on Tuesday, February 6, in Milton’s Nesto Gallery. Both Awalt and Conley have followed the landscape tradition in painting. Awalt’s work straddles two worlds: the events of nature and the experience of it, while Conley engages in the more spiritual side of nature. With over two decades of observation, both artists magnify the miracles of growth, renewal and rebirth.
“Irene Li (Class II) has at the bottom of each email ‘painting is life’ and I think that sums it up for these two artists,” says art faculty member, Anne Neely. “This is indeed a beautiful and passionate show.”
In Nature runs from February 6–March 6, and is open to the public weekdays from 8:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
