Seasons of Home
Coos Art Museum presents: Seasons of Home. The loss of the family farm is the focus of recent abstract works by Ruth Armitage. She uses color, shape and calligraphic marks to express her connection to the land. “Often my memories relate to the work or growth that each season brought to the family farm. Harvest, tilling, planting and fertilizing are inextricably layered with more personal family joys and dramas.”
Join me for the opening of this special exhibit, Friday, October 11 from 5-8 pm. This solo show includes 22 recent paintings. I’ll be happy to give you a personal tour of the exhibit, share some nibbles and answer any questions!
