Fifth generation Northern California native Liz Penniman is showing a new body of work titled Lines and Fields: Abstract Narrative Paintings.
This is a collection of oil on canvas pieces created in her Truckee art studio over the past two years. Her use of color and rhythmic compositional style is inspired by the light and shapes unique to our Sierra Nevada landscape.
This exhibit runs until Nov. 7 in Carson City at the Western Nevada College’s main gallery located in the Bristlecone Building. The gallery is open during school hours, Monday-Saturday. Opening reception for the artist is Tuesday from 4:30-6 p.m.
Penniman has shown in galleries in New York, London, San Francisco, Houston and throughout Texas and California. Her artistic roots are influenced by the San Francisco Bay Area Figurative Movement, and her education at the Art Student’s League of New York focused first on classical portraiture and later on abstract expressionism.
She currently lives and works in the North Tahoe/Truckee area and participates in The Reno Art Salon and Critique Circle.
