Brucie Holler, Natural Conditions: Of Land & Water
Opening Reception: July 5, 2018
Telluride Arts HQ Gallery in Telluride, Colorado presents Natural Conditions: Of Land & Water, an exhibit by Brucie Holler during the month of July 2018. The Art Walk opening reception will take place Thursday, July 5, from 5 – 8 pm.
As a non-representational painter, Brucie Holler’s work is influenced by the landscape and the idea of a sense of place. The relationship between the sky, water, and land is what compels Holler the most. “I’m always hoping to find a connection that is not too literal, the gray sky and water of winter, the squall lines in the spring, the gathering of the summer storm, the flight path of seabirds, the golden light of autumn that illuminates all it touches.” It is within this artistic paradigm that Holler searches for a sublime and quiet beauty in her paintings.
Brucie Holler, a South Carolina native, received a degree in painting from Florida State University and did graduate work at the Maryland Institute, College of Art in Baltimore. She then moved to Telluride, Colorado and worked for five years teaching and serving as Director of Exhibitions for the Ah Haa School for the Arts. She has studied with a variety of internationally known artists including Richard Smith, Mario Martinez and Truman Lowe among others and has shown her work in galleries in Florida, South Carolina, Georgia and Colorado. She moved back to the south in 1997 with her twin sons and husband where she paints and teaches.
The show runs thru July 2018 at Telluride Arts HQ Gallery, located at 135 W Pacific Ave in Telluride, Colorado. Open daily from 12-6 pm, or by appointment.
