On this installment of ST, we speak with Nancy Friese, a visual artist and former Tulsan whose paintings, prints, and etchings are now on display in the Alexandre Hogue Gallery on the TU campus; this exhibit features beautifully rendered landscapes created in open-air settings in both Rhode Island and North Dakota. The show will be on view through December 17th. As Friese notes in a statement about her work on the TU website: "Landscape painting is a composite of things seen, remembered, and felt. By studying nature's phenomena, I tie the visual observations to experience. A unified surface is created by incremental decisions representing the outward world. With unpeopled views, scenes, and vistas, one can enter a more philosophical, personal, and timeless place. The paintings and prints are of nature close at hand from bays, fields, treetops, and skies. When resolution occurs, the viewer can stand parallel to the artist." Friese will be speaking about her work at an opening reception for this exhibition, which happens at the Hogue Gallery on Thursday the 12th from 5pm till 7pm.
