A new collection of still life and landscape, focusing on atelier style of oil painting by artist Marisabel Artieda will be on display at Gunn Memorial Library’s Stairwell Gallery in Washington, CT from January 29 through March 12. There will be a socially-distanced reception to meet the artist on Saturday, February 5th from 12 to 2 PM.
Born in Lima, Peru, Artieda started drawing and painting at a very young age, and studied art and graphic design at The Institute of the Andes where she earned her BA degree. In 2001 she moved to Washington, Connecticut, where she joined the Washington Art Association and found the support network that she was looking for.
Artieda: “Art has become for me a lifetime experience that never ends.” She describes her process in her home studio and art class as “vitamin for my soul and heart.” It starts with objects that catch my attention from the gut in response to their color and form in a path of light. Next, I develop a composition through sketches and drawings that becomes the value pattern, or bones of the artwork. The paint follows, influenced by the warm earth colors deeply rooted from my youth in Peru.”
