Poetic Water Reflections: Oil Paintings and Haiku Poems

The Bozeman Public Library Foundation invites the public to the Art Opening Reception for Loretta Domaszewski on Friday, May 6, 5:30 – 7pm. Domaszewski’s exhibit Poetic Water Reflections will be shown in the Atrium Gallery for the months of May and June. A portion of the proceeds from sales will benefit the Bozeman Library Foundation and the Greater Gallatin Watershed Council (GGWC).

Domaszewski is known for her nature-inspired landscape paintings and murals highlighting the Gallatin Valley, and she will be offering a series of workshops and lectures for children and adults, in collaboration with the GGWC. These free workshops are sponsored by the Bozeman Public Library Foundation’s Artist-in-Residence Program, which will take place at the Bozeman Public Library, starting April 30 and continuing throughout the months of May and June. Call Paula at 582-2426 for more information or to register.

Originally influenced by the techniques of Master French Impressionists, Domaszewski’s landscape paintings express the essence and beauty of nature, with a Matisse sense of saturated color. Natural earth pigments and oil paint are applied to create rich transparent colors and textures, emphasizing the illumination of light and atmosphere. Domaszewski sees the world through light, layers, and pathways. More information about the artist can be found on her web site, www.lorettafineart.com.
