17 Jul TERRY PELLMAR BRINGS THE HUMAN SIDE OF “CITY SIGHTS” TO ARTISTS’ GALLERY IN ELLICOTT CITY FOR MONTH OF AUGUST WITH EXHIBITION OF DIGITAL PAINTINGS
Terry Pellmar will display an exhibition of dynamic digital paintings titled “City Sights” at Artists’ Gallery on Main Street. The show runs from July 31-August 26, with an opening reception on August 5 from 2-4 p.m. at 8197 Main Street, Ellicott City.
“City scenes are a contrast to my usual landscapes that provide the serenity I often seek. Cities challenge me – tall buildings and a frenzy of motion. With the images in this exhibit, I try to capture the humanity of the city, whether it is in the laundry hanging in the window, the traffic in the streets, or the men working on the sidewalks,” Pellmar commented.
Pellmar is a Maryland-based, award-winning, digital artist. After her retirement from a scientific career she taught herself digital art techniques and trained with local artists in traditional artistic media. An electronic stylus is her paintbrush and a computer screen is her canvas. She prints on traditional and non-traditional surfaces and often enhances the product with an overlay of paints and/or pastels. Her blending of digital and classical approaches results in a style uniquely hers.
Pelllmar’s artwork can be seen in a number of venues in the Washington DC metropolitan area including a recent curated exhibition at 505 North Gallery in Frederick, juried shows such as Laurel Art Guild and Brookside Gardens, as well as many other solo and group exhibitions. Her work regularly hangs at the Artists’ Gallery in Ellicott City. To see more of her work, visit: http://tpellmar.wix.com/
