PATRICIA TOBACCO FORRESTER at Addison Ripley


PATRICIA TOBACCO FORRESTER
WATERCOLORS

January 30 - March 6, 2010
Opening reception: Saturday, January 30, 5-7pm


The artist says it best, "You cannot get closer to a landscape than sitting within it while you are painting it."  Patricia Tobacco Forrester has been painting large scale watercolors in nature since graduating from Yale in 1965.  Her distinctive work comprises a poetic assembly of visionary scenes from exotic locales, Northern California, and the topography of her home, Washington DC.  In this exhibition, at Addison/Ripley Fine Art, the artist continues a tradition of lush, explosive, densely layered and deeply personal expressions of the world as she finds it.

Patricia Tobacco Forrester's work is in the collections of the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the British Museum, the Yale University Art Gallery, the United States Department of State, the Oakland museum, the Nationa Academy of Art and Design, Smithsonian's American Art Museum, the Indianapolis Museum and the Art Institute of Chicago, among many.


The artist wishes to thank the DC Arts Commission for its support through the Artist Fellowship Program during the 2009 grant year.
