Art Reception: Tsou/La Grange
Add to your calendar
Date: July 29, 5:30 pm
Continues Until:
Location: Piper Gallery at the Center for the Arts
Details: Free art reception with Janet Tsou and Cora La Grange.

Cora and Janet are neighbors who discovered their mutual love of art and whose friendship has grown while on painting excursions throughout the Gunnison Valley! Both draw their inspiration from nature, but explore individual methods of expressing themselves. Cora's work incorporates both watercolor and oil impressions of the landscape and neighborhoods of her two homes; the beautiful Gunnison River Valley and the magical Sonoran Desert of Southern Arizona. The intention of these paintings is to express the color and motion found in nature and to reflect the joy that comes from allowing your spirit to be drawn into the moment by the process of painting. Janet's works include her abstract paintings, which are not limited to the use of one medium. She uses watercolor, acrylic, pencil, as well as charcoal. To enrich her work, she added the monotype print making technique recently and these works will be included as well. She gets her inspiration from passion for reading, traveling and the love for nature. After many painting trips to Gunnison/Crested Butte, she and her husband bought a second home here. The beauty of the area and its people have enriched Janet’s palette and forever changed her life.
