“Annapolis To Newport”
Vanessa has created 30 New paintings depicting scenes from Annapolis Maryland to Newport Rhode Island.
“This body of work depicts the light and atmosphere at locations I have loved since childhood as well as recent discoveries near my new home in Rhode Island. Annapolis To Newport is about my emotional response to how the land and light react to each other. The light at each location sparked such an excitement in me, so I naturally knew which locations I wanted to translate onto canvas. While building this show I truly discovered that we may move, reconfigure our lives, live with numerous day to day uncertainties, but it is guaranteed the sun will rise in the east and set in the west….usually with a spectacular display which above all gave me comfort and inspired me to create these pieces.” Vanessa Piche 2015
Opening reception is Sunday, November 1st from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM.
