A May 1 reception (Friday) from 5-7 at High Road Gallery will spotlight the work of Columbus artist and popular teacher Vivian Ripley.
She has helped many local artists take a bold, free, direct, and deliberate approach in their art and taught many of High Road’s artists to paint with confidence.
Vivian is known for her vibrant use of clean, pure color. She has a keen knowledge of how light and shadow affect color to create a distinctive value system.
She is a signature member of the Ohio Watercolor Society, as well as the Central Ohio, Kentucky, Missouri, and Wyoming Watercolor Societies. She is also a charter member of the Ohio Plein Air Society.
Vivian’s special watercolor technique is spotlighted in a chapter in The Watercolor Landscape Techniques of 23 International Artists. She is one of only six artists from the United States in this popular book.
The exhibit of Vivian’s work will remain on display in the gathering room for the month of May.
