In the Black Creek Arts Center Gallery from December 1st 2016 - January 27th 2017:
Jim Stratton: Screams and Whispers
The Opening Reception is December 1st from 5:30-7pm and the exhibit will remain on display until January 27. Visit this website to view some of his work.
Jim portrays the beauty of the outdoors in most of his work through the use of a lively color palette, lots of atmospheric and linear perspective, and time-tested compositional laws. His work varies from tight detail to loose impressionism and into mostly geometric abstraction.
Teaching for many years has given him the opportunity to share what he believes are techniques, theories, and practices that are seldom taught in schools anymore. Art history, science of color and light, art materials, etc. Have all been major subjects in his classes. He loves to show people how to “construct” a painting using what he has learned over his half century in art.
