Green Heron gallery to feature watercolor paintings by Blacksburg native Aislinn Lowry July 6-31
The Green Heron Art and Frame Shop presents, “Naturally,” watercolor paintings from Blacksburg native Aislinn Lowry. Please join us in welcoming her to the Green Heron at an opening reception to be held Friday, July 6, from 5 to 7 p.m.
Lowry identifies as a colorist, and her work focuses on the way colors interact and how vision and light affect her subjects. Through technique she seeks to elevate everyday objects and scenes by capturing a poignant balance between detail and ambiguity in her work.
“I work sort of like a visual explorer. I play with angles, lighting and context to find the moment that the ordinary is transformed into something magical,” she said. Her paintings are inspired by nature and the beauty of her surroundings in the New River Valley.
Lowry’s work has been exhibited in the Covington Fine Arts Museum, the Fine Arts Center for the New River Valley, XYZ Gallery, the Little Gallery in Moneta, Uptown Gallery in Richmond, and the Brooklyn Art Library in New York. Her paintings are housed in the permanent collection of the Radford University Art Museum and in private collections up and down the East Coast, from North Carolina to New York.
Art has been a central part of Lowry’s life since childhood, as her study culminated in a Masters of Fine Arts degree conferred in 2010 from Radford University. In addition to working as a studio artist, Lowry teaches drawing and painting for Concord University in Athens, W.Va. She is also a member of the College Art Association, ‘Round the Mountain Southwest Virginia’s Artisan Network, and a participant in the 2012 Sketchbook Project: Limited Edition. In addition to watercolors she creates hand-painted silk scarves, jewelry, pastel paintings and metal wall sculpture.
“Naturally” will remain on display through July 31.
