DARIEN, Conn. -- Peaceful and uplifting nature scenes of acrylic painter Sharon Hathaway will be on display at Geary Gallery in Darien from March 1-31.
The exhibit, called "Tranquil Landscapes," will be open during Geary's regular business hours, Tuesday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Geary Gallery is located at 576 Boston Post Road in Darien.
Hathaway has been drawing since she was old enough to hold a pencil, and painting since she was 13 years old. She earned a BA in studio art and a minor in education in 1982 from the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, Minnesota.
She has lived in the Bay Shore, N.J. area with her husband and two children since the spring of 2000, teaching art to children and adults, as well as exhibiting her art at galleries in the area.
Hathaway’s paintings celebrate unique, tranquil landscapes that invite the viewer into the painting. “I want you to feel the sand under your feet, smell the vegetation or the ocean air, and hear the birds, the waves, or the crunch of leaves,” she said. “I want you to feel the same release of tension and uplift in spirit I feel when I‘m taking a walk and enjoying nature.”
Her paintings are available for acquisition. All are welcome and admission is free. Click here to visit Hathaway's work.
