Art Exhibit to Open at Dalton State Library
October 28, 2014
Kristina B. Hall sees a stillness in nature during the winter.
That’s what inspired her solo art exhibit “Preserving the Time Between” which will be featured in Dalton State’s Derrell C. Roberts Library beginning Nov. 4 with an opening reception from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Hall is a part-time instructor of art at the College.
“The landscape paintings created for ‘Preserving the Time Between’ are of Georgia wetlands in the winter,” Hall said. “During this time of year, there is a stillness that can be experienced in nature. This stillness, and my personal experience with the loss of wetland habitat, has led me to create these works.”
Trees are painted so they seem to float into a “mysterious expanse,” she said.
“I see these areas as existing in a state of meditation,” Hall said. “They are solid forms in nature, but their existence is precarious.”
Hall uses her landscapes to represent the unknown.
“These areas are unknown to most people, and the fate of these vital habitats are also unknown,” she said.
The display will be at the library until Dec. 1.
The reception and the display are free and open to the public. For more information on Hall, visit www.kristinabhall.com.
