Paintings by Allison Richter, showcasing a love of coastal bird life with a panorama of brilliant and serene color, will be on exhibit at Red Sable February 27 through April 1.
Allison’s love of art began at a young age, under the tutelage of her equally artistic mother. She has nurtured this love, refining it into a talent for painting and drawing highly realistic and detailed bird life as viewed through the lens of her own personal dramatic flair. Allison’s vision is expressed through the mediums of both Prismacolor pencil, and of oil paint on canvas.
In 2010, Allison began one of her most celebrated collections, “Ugly Pretty”, which pays tribute to the vibrant plumage and awkwardly striking features of the Roseate Spoonbill. during the creation of “Ugly Pretty” that Allison began experimenting and refining the use of the impasto technique of texturing her oil paintings.
Select pieces from “Ugly Pretty”, as well as her owl and hummingbird pieces, two other types of birds that have caught her imagination, will be on display. Allison, herself, will be on-site at the Red Sable on Saturday March 12, from 6 PM to 8 PM. She’ll be there to greet her fans, to answer answer any questions about her past works (and current works in progress), and to put a few touches on her newest creation.
