"Bad weather always looks worse through a window."
A change in the weather can often be felt first in our bones. Inspired by winter travels along European coastlines, across the open plains of western America, and out her own backdoor, painter Linda Hanson brings form and color to this uncanny sensation in "Inclement Weather."
Fishing boats at rest upon the North Sea shore, the stark silhouette of a prairie barn against the whiteout of a blizzard, a backyard clothesline wet with rain. From intimate sketches of daily life to grand vistas illuminating the meeting of nature and man, Hanson's paintings capture the spirit of the uneasy space between calm and storm.
Landscape and portrait artist Linda Hanson holds an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Her paintings are in collections throughout the United States and her work has been exhibited in galleries in the San Francisco Bay Area and Washington, D.C.
"A Studio for the Imagination," Castle in the Air's shop and classroom have inspired local and visiting artists since 2001. Castle in the Air's new gallery in the upstairs loft quite literally takes the inspiration to new heights and provides a venue to showcase current and historical works.
