Divergence---The Freedom that Art offers

A mini show of maxi art will be on display on the wall of Orange Hall Gallery Fringe May 8 through June 13. Susan Hope Fogel paints large. Whether she is working in oils in the style of traditional realism or using watercolors with an experimental technique, her paintings connect viewers to her vision of art.

The exhibit visually explains her distinctly different avenues of approaching these two media -- oil paintings demonstrating her fascination with North Light and plein air, and watercolors using the style of Deconstruction. Is this idea of showing such contrasting styles unsettling?  Art offers that freedom. Yet, she does have a constant which inspires her: “the quality of light enveloping the subject…transforms our world, resonates within and inspires this artist,” she states. Come and get a glimpse of Fogel’s world of art through her exhibit

Divergence ~ oils and watercolors by Susan Hope Fogel

Fogel is the judge for the 2018 MAG show. She teaches traditional realism in pastel and oil painting at The Ridgewood Art Institute and experimental watercolor workshops at her art school, The Warwick Atelier.
