Takeyce Walter & Liron Sissman:
Peace of Nature
Opening Reception: Friday April 29, 2016 6 - 9pm
Exhibition runs through May 25
Takeyce Walter is an artist, and art instructor truly inspired by the landscape. This is ever apparent when standing before any of her paintings. Walter’s work in oil and pastel present the landscape of the Northeast in all its glory. There is a great sense of familiarity, calm, and stillness in each piece.
The paintings feature the rural landscape of upstate New York, the Adirondacks, Cape Cod, and Vermont. Walter is especially inspired by, and drawn to rivers, lakes, and the ocean.
Takeyce Walter is a painter whose return to painting in 2005 has been documented on her blog. She made a commitment to finishing at least one painting a week and started blogging to help track her progress. Many years later, Takeyce has maintained that commitment and is currently producing art on a prolific basis. In addition to exhibiting her paintings online, she also exhibits in local venues. Her art has found homes in many private collections across the country, and internationally.
Liron Sissman Liron Sissman’s oil paintings help transport viewers by uplifting the spirit, engaging the senses and promoting well-being. They are collected by individuals on three continents and by organizations nationwide. Her paintings won multiple awards and are written about extensively. Liron’s art is featured in Something Borrowed, a Warner Bros. film starring Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin, Colin Egglesfield, and John Krasinski.
"I do not paint flowers. Having no faces of their own, flowers in my paintings represent
images with which viewers of diverse backgrounds can relate. Unencumbered by
personal features, they serve as portraits of universal nature."
