Gilchrist’s Paintings Featured at Idea Gallery
Idea Gallery is showcasing work by Sturgeon Bay artist Lynn Gilchrist in its Small Works Exhibit, on display through Dec. 24.
Gilchrist is known for her whimsical use of color as she observes and reflects on the wordless conversations in nature. She paints what she sees, while acknowledging that the subject matter is more about emotional response than realism. Her recent work was created in the studio using acrylics and stencils that she designs, cuts and then prints.
“Being in the woods stirs the heart in every way,” Gilchrist said. “There’s a lonesomeness among the trees, but a deep feeling of love for our threatened world that I try to bring to my work.”
