Winter Escape: Paintings in Quiet Colors Wotiz Gallery exhibit to take place in January
In the New Year, a lovely exhibit will open in the Wotiz Gallery of the Milton Public Library on January 3rd to show the work of artists Jan Ruhl Parr and Melanie Ruhl.
It is called “Winter Escape: Paintings in Quiet Colors” and will be available for viewing until January 29th.
The paintings feature familiar scenes and settings of New England and beyond. Initially looking for a creative outlet, the artists’ painting has steadily become a passion to interpret the quiet scenes all around us. By capturing familiar places and things, they hope to inspire others to take a second look.
Beginning in 2012, the artists and sisters began their creative journey by studying with local art teachers Dorothy Appel of Sharon and Barbara McAuliffe of Foxboro. From some early happy accidents, they have continued to paint and learn along the way, relying on books and YouTube videos to enhance their skills. They are passionate about painting what they know, so this display features local scenes and wildlife, as well as travel destinations home and abroad.
There will be a free and open reception with the artists held on Sunday, January 8th, from 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. in the Gallery. We hope you will come and enjoy this wonderful collection of artwork during the month of January!
