Second Saturdays Art Opening @ Art on the Trax with Linda Verdery

“A Mind of Seasons” paintings by Linda Verdery

Art on the Trax is pleased to welcome back local artist, Linda Verdery.  Her show, “A Mind of Seasons,” will be on display at Art on the Trax for the month of October.  About her work: “I try to reach beyond my eye alone to respond to a subject’s mood, atmosphere or even narrative. Sometimes favorite objects or places suggest memories I wish to hold on to. For landscapes, I only paint places I know well. Abstracts come from a perception that is distilled. Stylistically, I let the subject determine the approach. Starting with knives, I apply large swaths of color and then plan the color notes and opening gestures. I draw and redraw, scrape and scrub. My process seems to require missteps and I enjoy the redos, letting the act of painting just take over. In my studio are always three or four paintings in process and more are left to face the wall.”  

The artist reception will be held during Second Saturday, on October 12th from 2:00 – 4:00 pm.  This reception is part of Crozet’s Second Saturday events. We will be serving up The Art Box’s famous ice cream sundaes topped with fruit from local orchards. This exhibit is free and on view for the month of October.  Art on the Trax is located at Creative Framing and The Art Box, across from the Old Crozet Train Station, at 5784 Three Notch’d Road in Crozet, Virginia.

From the artist: These bird nest paintings celebrate the cycle of avian parenthood, which is condensed into a much shorter time frame than humans – four to seven weeks from constructing the nest, to embryo, to fledgling. Ready for flight!  My nest works use tar along with oil paints, plus added textures of natural and found materials, often from old bird nests.
