Summer Sun - Winter Moon

A Seasonal Study of Fannin County by Phyllis Ryser


Reception, Friday, October 11 at 6 PM. Come meet the artist and see her work. 

From Maine to Montana, Phyllis has set up her easel in the same manner as the French Impressionist Artists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century who began the "plein air" movement by painting in the outdoors or in the open air. The exhibit will focus on paintings done in mostly local settings during early dawn or late evening at sunset. The aim was to capture the most beautiful moment of the day when the light is muted and the sky is most colorful.
