Linda Brown of Evanston, Illinois, will exhibit her acrylic paintings at the UU Gallery throughout October. The public is invited to an opening reception will be held Oct. 6 from 12 – 2 pm.
Brown says that she “emphasizes allusions in nature, water, and Midwestern seasons, telling a visual story about life and the outdoors.” Brown uses bold and light colors to capture fleeting moments in nature, landscapes and the joy of life; she specializes in acrylics because they allow her freedom of brush strokes and texture.
With a deep interest in her Irish roots, Brown creates many pieces depicting the beauty of the country and its people. She paints the meadows, valleys, cottages and seascapes in tonal detail, yet captures a feeling of nostalgia through the illusive light and color of Ireland.
Born in Chicago and raised in Oconomowoc, Brown received her BA degree from the University of Wisconsin, majoring in Secondary Art Education. Brown relocated to the Chicago area in 1996 and pursues painting as a hobby.
UU Gallery hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1 – 3 pm and Sunday from 11 am – 12:30 pm. The UU Gallery is located at 10341 Highway 42, just south of the Shops at Green Gables, Ephraim. For more information, visit uufdc.com or call 920.854.7559.
