Tryon Fine Arts Center in Tryon, NC, Features Works by Jane Todd Butcher

The Tryon Fine Arts Center in Tryon, NC, will present an exhibition of works by Jane Todd Butcher entitled, Landscape Variations, on view from June 2 - 25, 2002. The exhibition, sponsored by the Tryon Painters & Sculptors, will include images from the mountains to the coast, in a style that is sometimes described as "contemporary impressionism."

Butcher, who lives in the Greenville, SC, area, has become recognized in the Southeast for her fresh approach to landscape and nature themes in collage and water media. While her colorful paintings are usually representational, they are a departure from the traditional landscape renderings typically seen in the region.

Butcher presents an unusual look at the world through her unique use of water based media. She often begins by staining Japanese rice papers with inks, and allowing the composition to emerge from the colors. Torn pieces of many papers may be used to compile an image, and acrylics and pastels may be used to enhance the work.

For information call the Tryon Painters & Sculptors at 828-859-8322.
