Seasonal Sightings
April 21-May 15, 2011
Vernissage: April 21, 6PM

"Seasonal Sightings" are several landscape paintings by Kristen Elsbeth Dallum, acrylic on paper. This exhibit is the third consecutive solo exhibit by Ms. Dallum at Form/Space Atelier. Ms. Dallum's exhibit history at Form/Space Atelier has been distinguished by her consistent adherence to visually communicating the landscape; her two previous exhibits 2009's "Postc...ards From Footsteps: Explorations of Unique and Universal" and 2010's "54th Statehood Exposition" have been black and white photographs of the natural environment. Ms. Dallum is a graduate of the University of Washington School of Art, Interdisciplinary Visual Arts Department. -Paul Pauper, Curator, Form/Space Atelier.

"The cherry blossoms are already making an appearance here on Orcas Isle - I dare say Spring is making an early appearance this year, and that is a joy in itself. The extended daylight hours don't hurt either!

Attached you will find three images from my recent works - this winter has been a highly productive one for me, art-making wise, and I've got about 7 paintings in the works at the moment. I even found a great deal on some beautiful wood frames that I think will work nicely. They are all 11x14.

Each piece is composed of acrylic and pigment, on BFK Rives paper. The collection has been a meditation on environment: exploring naturally occurring elements and human interventions, and I have been particularly drawn to landscape silhouettes, rendering a sense of place (especially in the light of dusk and dawn)."- Kristen Elsbeth Dallum.
