Gallery 200 at 103 West Washington Street is featuring the work of artist and Gallery member Marge Hall for the month of August.
Her show combines paintings she has done which have been inspired by nature. “In difficult times there is always beauty around us. All we have to do is focus on our surroundings and take in the wonder of God’s creation”, Hall said about her work and her inspiration.
She admits to painting for as long as she can remember. “When asked if I would like to teach at the DuPage Art League in Wheaton in 1971, I said yes, and have been teaching oil painting ever since. My series of large flowers started in 1991 and I have been consumed with producing every species I can find. My goal is to capture the light with layers of paint and create an almost luminous flower,” she shared.
Those visiting the Gallery in August will be rewarded with an amazing collection nature-inspired art by botanical artist Marge Hall.
Gallery hours are Fridays from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays, 10:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m. Visit the online store anytime at Gallery200.net
