University of Illinois Krannert Art Museum exhibition celebrates early images of nature, female artists

Released: August 15, 2017

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Botanical prints and other portrayals of nature from the Renaissance onward were not only lovely to look at or used to illustrate scientific text. They also contributed to the scientific knowledge of the time by helping scientists identify plants or insects and documenting natural phenomena. Artists and illustrators worked closely with botanists and entomologists. And because flowers and nature were acceptable artistic subjects for women at the time, female artists flourished and made significant scientific contributions. An exhibition opening Aug. 31 at Krannert Art ...

Fall Hunters, 2014.  Oil and acrylic on canvas, 78 x 78 inches.

HANNAH BARRETT'S IMAGINARIUM at Childs Gallery, Boston

Released: July 9, 2015

Hannah Barrett’s paintings imagine a colorful, absurdist world inhabited by eccentrics of ambiguous genders and time periods.  As they sip tea in alpine drag, the characters of her Imaginarium play at perceived etiquettes and gender norms. With tongue-in-cheek nods to the past, Barrett combines dichotomous oddities to create a whimsical atmosphere that is familiar and foreign, modern and retro, unsettling yet charming. Drawing on works from the Rustics, Hunters’ Picnic, and The Secret Society series, Imaginarium brings together portraits and still lifes that share common themes but...

Lee Essex Doyle’s latest series of watercolors, Illuminated Moments, reflects the vibrant light of two cities, Venice and Havana. Inspired by the artist’s recent travels, these luminous paintings capture quiet moments of architectural splendor.
