Local artist Ginnie Cappaert is feeling the accumulation of a year’s worth of painting coming into fruition as she is preparing for her first solo show in Santa Fe, New Mexico at Globe Fine Art. Cappaert owns her own studio/gallery in Door County and also maintains a studio in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Edgewood Orchard Galleries and Cappaert Contemporary Gallery show her work locally, but she is represented in seven galleries across the country.
A solo show in Santa Fe is the result of many years of showing in the Santa Fe arts market, a bit of luck, a lot of hard work and a wonderful opportunity. “I feel so grateful to Globe Fine Art for the opportunity of a lifetime – a solo show in Santa Fe!” said Cappaert.
Santa Fe is one of the largest art markets in the country boasting 200 galleries. Cappaert fell in love with the Santa Fe area years ago while on vacation and pursued gallery representation. She has been represented at Globe Fine Art for four years.
This solo exhibit, titled Transitional Horizons: Ginnie Cappaert, represents places of beauty from distant horizons and wide expanses to up-close, intimate bits of the landscape. Many of the pieces were inspired by aerial photos from the airplane of skies, waters and earth. Cappaert said, “Life is full of transitions and we cannot remain static for it is in these changes that we find growth. This new body of work in oil and cold wax relates to my travels and viewing horizons that change either gently or abruptly.”
