Archway Gallery presents Shirl Riccetti: In A Good Place opening reception
Shirl Riccetti's exhibition, In A Good Place, is a whimsical collection of watercolors, drawings, and musings. Each colorful piece brings a place, a time, and a feeling together and invites the viewer to share these moments in time with the artist. Riccetti explains that being in “a good place” could be a physical location, a moment shared, or a friend’s laughter.
Riccetti has combined the whimsy of her sketchbook pen drawings, inspired by her travels, with a variety of other sketches selected from the plethora of her sketchbooks to create this recent body of work. Each painting tells a visual story enhanced by the fact that her paintings are inspired by the sketchbook drawings which note sights, sounds, smells, and even the weather. When creating a painting from these small sketches, Riccetti finds that the senses noted actually bring the image and travel experience back to life.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through February 2.
