“Lush Lands,” a collection of new landscape paintings by Georgeanne Gaffney, will be on display at the Adirondack Artists Guild Gallery February 1st -28th.

An opening reception will be held at the Gallery on Friday, February 1st from 5 – 7 p.m.

Working in a variety of mediums including acrylic, oil and encaustic, Georgeanne uses multiple layers of paints and glazes to summon dreamy, romantic images, rich in color and texture with an aged and atmospheric patina. She often works from photographs she takes while exploring the lush and dramatic mountains, rivers and bogs of the Adirondacks, as well as the waterways and wetlands of the Audubon sanctuary on Cape Cod. Her landscape paintings reveal intimate observations expressed in subtle shadows, dappled light and reflections on water, celebrating and initiating a dialogue about our relationship with the natural world.

Georgeanne’s artwork is exhibited and collected nationally. She also works in the construction field as a decorative finisher, collaborating with architects, designers and clients from the planning stages to completion. Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, Georgeanne fell in love with the Adirondacks while on vacation more than a decade ago, and now makes her home in Saranac Lake.
