Feick Arts Center to Feature Work from Lily Hinrichsen
POULTNEY, VT - “Field Notes,” an exhibit opening at the Feick Fine Arts Center December 1, features paintings and prints that draw on the energy of the earth as inspiration.
A reception with artist Lily Hinrichsen will be held Thursday, December 4, from 4-6 p.m. It is free and open to the public. “Field Notes” will be on display through January 9.
Hinrichsen grew up in Sioux City, Iowa, as one of 11 children. She left home at 18 and earned degrees in graphic design and art education before coming to Vermont for a Masters in Studio Arts. For four years, she served as the development assistant at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont.
In her artist statement, Hinrichsen says she is “intrigued by the internal workings of life forms; the emotional, energetic, cellular, and structural components of humans, animals, and plants.”
“My artwork was initially influenced by the spontaneity, color and vitality of the abstract expressionists, but later it became apparent that my relationship to the earth, to the land, to plant life, all played a vital role in the imagery one sees in my work,” she writes.
The Feick Fine Arts Center is open to the public Monday through Friday from 1-5 p.m.
