Where We Live: Carolyn Lord, Peggi Kroll-Roberts
August 27 - September 21, 2018
University of the Pacific's Reynolds Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Where We Live: The Paintings of Carolyn Lord and Peggi Kroll-Roberts, the first exhibition of the 2018-2019 season, Monday, August 27, 2018. Join us for an opening reception, Thursday, August 30 from 6 - 8 p.m., when both artists will be in the gallery to discuss their inspirations, work, and career insights. This gallery event is free and open to the public.
Award winning, master artists, Carolyn Lord and Peggi Kroll-Roberts, are California painters, as such their work embodies the hot sun, hardy flora, and visual drama of the place where they paint and live. It also embodies something of the spirit of the state; its scrappiness and constant reinvention. Distilled through the filters of t wo unique styles - gardens, landscapes, houses, and figures are the subjects of the paintings on exhibit. With glorious color and exquisite design these contemporary painters bring scenes from everyday life to their canvases and open our eyes to its beauty.
With insatiable curiosity both Kroll-Roberts and Lord continue to delve into the treasure trove of art history for inspiration and to hone their craft. They also turn again and again to children literally growing beyond the image's edge; gardens unruly and tamed, poised to change again and finding in each new season a deeper understanding of the reasons they make paintings.
