Pastels by Reif Erickson and Oils by Tatyana Fogarty
Opening reception, Friday, March 14, 2014 from 6:00-8:00pm with refreshments and live music.
"Spring Skies," 9"x12", pastel on paper "Midsummer Dream," 30"x24", oil in canvas
Artists have long held a fascination with capturing images of the landscape. From grand majestic mountains to intimate floral foregrounds, painters have strived to interpret nature’s masterpieces. These artists can often be seen outdoors with their easels set up on location in meadows and mountains, paint brush in hand. In the next exhibit at the Gallery at 48 Natoma in Folsom, “Classic Landscapes” will feature the work of two popular artists. Reif Erickson will display his award-winning pastel paintings and Tatyana Fogarty will exhibit her spectacular oil paintings. The exhibit opens on March 14 and continues through May 8, 2014.
Tatyana Fogarty’s deep fascination with nature is an ever-changing source of inspiration for portraying landscape on canvas. “Painting landscapes fulfills my desire to escape the entrapments of daily life and immerse myself in the world of nature’s beauty and openness,” said Fogarty. Fogarty’s favorite starting point for the landscape painting is the golden light of late afternoon, which she calls the “magic hour”, which creates the most intriguing effects by merging captivating shadow patterns and warm, luminous color of the setting sun. Among numerous national and regional awards, Fogarty’s professional affiliations include California Art Club, American Impressionist Society (Signature Member), Oil Painters of America, and El Dorado Hills Arts Association.
Some of the landscapes in Reif Erickson’s paintings are iconic views; others are ordinary places that transcend the mundane. He focuses on the mountain and valley views from the Sierras, Yosemite, and Sacramento Valley. “I painted many on location, I strive to capture a sense of place, and a moment in time and season,” said Erickson. “I minimize the amount of pastel that is necessary letting much of the paper show through to lend atmosphere to my work, as if I am painting the air and light between me and the subject, and not just rendering an object in space.” Recognized continually for his talents, Reif has won awards in numerous competitions throughout his career including In 1991 Erickson was honored by the Pastel Society of the West Coast as a Distinguished Pastellist. He is a member of the California Art Club of Pasadena (est. 1909), and Past President of the Pastel Society of the West Coast, his work has been featured in several books and exhibited throughout the west coast.
