The Artists' Gallery Presents
Rana Geralis and Nancy Lee Davis
April 29 thru May 31, 2013
Reception: May 3 from 6 - 8 PM
In their current show, Nancy and Rana aim to depict how figures (human and equine) move within a space. For example, speed: are the figures still, barely moving or moving rapidly? How much gesture is involved: a slight gesture or an intense and dramatic one? How much rhythm is involved as the figures move through the space?
Columbia artist, Rana Geralis, works from her home studio and is an award-winning artist in numerous media, including oil, acrylic, pastel, and watercolor. While she paints a variety of subject matter, Rana remarked, "Horses have always been my favorite subjects. From a very early age I have had a deep love and appreciation for them, and I hope the viewer can feel the close relationship and intimacy I have shared with these beautiful animals."
Clarksville resident, Nancy Lee Davis, has been painting plein air in oils for more than 20 years and has studios in Clarksville and Tilghman Island, Maryland. Her favorite subject matter is the landscape, figures in the landscape, children in action, and still life. She describes her style as "colorist/modern impressionism," and employs loose brush marks and vivid colors. Nancy has been a long-time advocate for strong environmental protections on the local, state and national levels but has realized that preserving beautiful landscapes on canvas is equally rewarding. She currently teaches painting through Howard County Parks and Recreation.
Both Davis and Geralis are members of the Artists' Gallery of Columbia, and their work is represented in a number of galleries in the Maryland / Virginia area.
