Hidell Brooks Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by Diane Bywaters
Hidell Brooks Gallery in Charlotte, NC, is pleased to announce their second solo exhibition entitled, From the Mountains to the Sea, for Diane Bywaters which will be on view through July 23, 2000.
Diane Canfield Bywaters, born in Kansas City in 1957, has lived in various locations in the Midwest throughout her life. A professor of art at the University of Wisconsin in Stevens Point, Bywaters has painted extensively throughout the United States, France, England and Italy. She is a landscape arlist of the en plein air method - all painting is done on location within a limited time span. Bywaters says, "Though my work is representative, I am not seeking merely to supply a precise descriptive rendering of the objects before me, rather I hope to interpret those objects by means of form and color, so to enrich the experience of the viewer.'
Bywaters chooses a panoramic format which allows for a comprehensive view of the landscape. She has achieved a high level of adeptness in her poetic interpretations of the places she visits. She is spiritually renewed and rewarded in nature continuing a tradition that was started in the 19th century by landscape artists Thomas Cole, Frederick Church and Albert Bierstadt. Bywaters has been selected as artist-in-residence in more current national part programs than any other artist. This past year, Bywaters traveled to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the marshes surrounding Figure Eight Island and Wnghtsville Beach where she captured the beauty of our diverse scenery. All works in the current exhibition are paintings of the NC landscape. She paints solely with oil, both on paper or canvas.
