Fountain Street Studios will host a new art exhibit featuring Paola Ranieri at the Depot Diner in downtown Framingham on Thursday, August 10 from 7 to 9 p.m.
Whether her paintings are of the lustrous vegetation, rusty colors of the earth, the blazing hot sun casting shadows all around, Ranieri approaches her paintings recalling the colorful scenes or growing up in Africa. She tries to capture those visual experience in her work, even recalling the drum like sounds of the pouring rain beating down on the tin rooftops, said the Studios in a release.
“I build textured layers with paint as I see fit – both for its appearance and its multifaceted effects. In addition, I enjoy the feel of paint as it glides across the surface and at times gets all over my hands – it’s reminiscent of a child at play, which I am content to do over and over. Nature scenes, especially waterscapes are a favorite of mine. I also immerse figures in some of my paintings as they interact with their environment. I seek to capture those moments of silence, joy, laughter, or pure contemplation through their expressions,” said Ranieri.
The event will feature live jazz by Hakim Law. Cash bar.
