Paintings by Sarah McGowan
Visit the Thrasher gallery at 510 Mill St. between now and the end of February to see "Land and Sea," our current exhibit of paintings by Ripon artist Sarah McGowan.
Artist Statement: "I like to paint what I observe and behold on my travels and these
seascapes and landscapes are interpretations from recent trips. I hope to
capture the beauty, excitement and pleasure the sea and land impart. Most of
the ‘bright’ seascapes are interpretations of the ocean at Amelia Island,
Florida. The "darker” ones are from the often misty northwest coast of the
United States. On a trip to Montana I was captivated by the Dakota landscape.
The broad vistas and powerful skies with "weather” happening miles away from
where I was standing. On a trip to Scotland I was beguiled by the closes of Edinburgh. I loved
their names and the feeling the narrow passageways instilled in me as I walked
The exhibit can also be seen during Thrasher office hours (10 a.m. - 4 p.m. weekdays) and during concert intermissions. The exhibit will run through the end of February.
