Alex Tolstoy: “Watermarks”

June 8, 2016 - July 3, 2016

Exhibit dates: Wednesday, June 8–Sunday, July 3
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 9, 6:30–8:00 pm

About the artist: Alex Tolstoy is interested in water, whether it is the calm water of the reflecting pool or the vast and agitated sea, “in the center of a city or by a beach.” Her style and approach to using watercolor reflects her subject: Tolstoy’s works often look as if they were splashed upon the page, with blooms of pigment and edge that often look like tidemarks. Tolstoy’s subjects range from the readily identifiable, like the Lincoln Monument reflected in the Potomac, to the nearly abstract, open to interpretation.
