Sunrise and Sunset: Two very different interpretations of landscape
Erin McGarry and Hallie Strock, artists at 4th Street Fine Art in Berkeley, present an exhibition of their landscape paintings from July 7th through August 17th. There will be a reception for the artists on Saturday July 11 from 5 pm to 7pm.
Erin, growing up on the outskirts of San Antonio, learned to love nature through playing outdoors and camping, as well as traveling. In her oil paintings, she captures the ephemeral qualities of light and time, and how they affect a viewer’s experience.
Hallie creates her landscapes with a combination of printmaking techniques, acrylic and watercolor. She works from her own photographs, and is particularly fascinated with trees, using strong color and composition.
Hallie says,”It is always amazing and intriguing to me how two different artists can interpret the same thing in such different ways. My view of what China Camp, or Angel Island, or many other familiar places is not like Erin’s at all.”
4th Street Fine Art is a collaboration of 16 local artists, located in Berkeley at 2000 4th Street, corner of 4th and University. The gallery is open from Friday through Sunday, 11 am to 6 pm, and by appointment.
