ART in the Garden® traditionally celebrates the kick off for RRA's season of visual and performing arts with, this year, the installation of Karen Fitzgerald 360⁰: Cosmic Landscape Revelations. Large-scale, gilded tondo oil paintings alongside watercolor landscapes, as seen through a looking glass, showcase this extraordinary artist's unique vision and style. Guests might even catch a glimpse of the Arboretum's gardens through one of Fitzgerald's magical circles.
Fitzgerald's sense of wonder and the witnessing of natural energy is at the core of her work, and her paintings occupy a very special niche in contemporary art. Her unique, circular format claims independence from straight lines, offering the viewer a free-floating, unfettered quality. The use of gold in her work, especially around the continuous edge of a painting or hovering close to the center, is a reference to the spiritual, like light emerging from darkness.
Karen Fitzgerald 360⁰, Cosmic Landscape Revelations, has been chosen as the featured exhibit for the Arboretum's gala, ART in the Garden® and will continue at the Wisner House Gallery through November 3. All works are for sale and the artist will donate 30% of all sales to the Arboretum. A meet-the-artist reception will be scheduled soon.
