Local artist Fatima Young will present works of Russian Impressionism with a twist of the sublime in “Capturing the Moment: A Plein Air Passion,” the October art exhibit at the Bainbridge Public Library.
The new show opens with an artist’s reception during the First Friday Art Walk at 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4 at the library.
Traveling to majestic places has inspired Young to paint special landscapes as a part of her current works. She hopes to connect viewers through her process; being one with nature and finding simplicity within complexity.
When her husband passed several years ago, she found hiking to be her therapy and painting to be her healing. Now, as a plein air painter, she studies nature at its purest.
The artist was born of Russian heritage in Europe. She received degrees from F.I.T. and C.W. Post University in New York, and has called Bainbridge Island home for almost 30 years.
The exhibit will be available for viewing all of October in the library meeting room and online at www.bainbridgepubliclibrary.org.
