The Loft Gallery will open a new exhibit, ‘ESSENCE’, featuring landscape and gardenscape paintings by Ridgefield artist, ANN KROMER, on Saturday, April 9. This exhibit runs through Sunday, May 22.
Guests are invited to meet the artist at the artist's opening reception on Saturday, April 9th from 4 - 6pm. The reception is free and open to the public.
Ann paints from nature in an impressionistic style, mostly en plein air, bringing a compelling immediacy to her work. More recently, she has begun doing loose, free vibrant watercolors while traveling the countryside alongside her husband. She paints spontaneously as they drive, capturing the essence of the scenery rather than accurate depictions, calling these watercolors her "drive bys".
Ann's landscapes and gardenscapes are in many corporate and private collections throughout the United States. She has won many awards for her oil and acrylic paintings, including Best of Show at the Ridgefield Guild of Artists juried by New York Times art critic, William Zimmer.
