“Chapters” surveys the artist’s exploration of a broad range of subjects using intuitive techniques employing both large and small scale. “Portraits, landscapes, swimmers, botanicals — all captivate my interest,” says Carter. “I strive to share my visual interpretation through veils of water and color.” For decades, she has followed a practice of creating realistic watercolors becoming an award-winning watercolorist. Carter’s mastery of watercolor lead to an AIRE Fellowship, spending a month in the Everglades National Park learning to paint the slow-moving river of grass. She also paints the Elements.
Most recently, Carter is painting a series of small portraits of endangered species. “I hope to paint my impressions and feelings of the world around me throughout the journey of life. Color is my strength and invitation.”
Gallery Talks on Saturdays at 2pm are conversations on topics ranging from painting technique, intuitive methods, with Carol Carter on June 24 and Sept 2.
