Providence Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Offers Works by Jann Pollard

Providence Gallery in Charlotte, NC, will celebrate the arrival of new artist, Jann Pollard, with a display of new works, featuring a collection of vibrant landscapes from Europe and the Carolinas, on display from Aug. 2 – 31, 2011.

Frequent trips to Europe enable Pollard to accurately capture colorful landscapes from France and Italy in vivid watercolor renderings rich in atmosphere and mood, conveying to the viewer a true sense of the visual beauty and emotional tranquility found in the vistas explored throughout Pollard’s work. The elements of light and texture are of primary emphasis in her compositions, a fact the artist credits with enabling her to focus succinctly on the essence of the many places she has seen and documented in her paintings.

Pollard has always been fascinated by the beauty of nature, which perhaps can be traced back to her childhood, spent on a farm in Iowa. After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Interior Design from the University of Colorado in Boulder, Pollard continued her studies at the College of San Mateo, CA.

Today, Pollard teaches a variety of highly successful international workshops for watercolor painters, and conducts a series of workshops concentrating on computer tools for artists. As co-author of the 2001 book, Creative Computer Tools for Artists, Pollard is an expert in the field.

Now living in Charlotte, Pollard has drawn inspiration from destinations across the Carolinas. In addition to her European landscapes, regional scenes from the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and the South Carolina coast will also be on display.
