Studio Gallery Art of the Day

Located on the top floor of the Studio Gallery, Elizabeth Grusin-Howe's "Venice Canal" is a screen print of a pleasant landscape. What gives this piece great interest is the contrast of the strong, rigid, and vertical architecture to the painterly quality of the color application. For example, the sky is built up with light blue brush strokes that create a great sense of space which also complements the perspective created by the architecture. The lively and saturated colors say a lot about the mood that the artist strives to capture in the landscape.
