RedSky Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by Terry Thirion

RedSky Gallery in the Dilworth area of Charlotte, NC, will present the exhibit, Terry Thirion: Freedom Park - An Urban Treasure, on view from Apr. 9 through May 6, 2010.

RedSky Gallery is proud to present an exhibit of selected paintings and photographs by Belgian/Charlotte artist Terry Thirion. These works will reveal the beauty and majesty of one of Charlotte's jewels, Freedom Park, as few have experienced it.

In small plein air pastels and large brilliant oils, with detailed realism and abstract expression, on canvas and through the camera's lens, Thirion captures the park's pastoral landscape, resplendent trees, regional wildlife and serene seasonal contrasts. The exhibit will be both a beautiful artistic rendering and a personal tribute to this unique resource in our city.

Freedom Park is Charlotte's most photographed locale and yet its grandeur is often overlooked and unexamined in a busy and stress-filled city. With a European sensibility, Thirion has cherished the park's distinct beauty and discrete charms. She has explored, sketched, painted and photographed every corner of the park for more than 10 years and been a civic champion for the preservation and improvement of its hallmark cherry trees and landscape.

An Urban Treasure, will be an arresting reminder and a pleasurable invitation to find beauty and glory in the simplicity of a walk in the park.

RedSky Gallery features original works on paper and canvas, sculpture, ceramic, glass, studio furniture, art-to-wear, jewelry, and more. Over 500 regional and national artists are represented at three gallery locations in Dilworth, Blakeney Town Centre in South Charlotte and the EpiCentre in Uptown.
