The Passage Gallery at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center at Northern Virginia Community College’s Alexandria Campus is pleased to present The Inscape of my Landscape: The Clouds Revisited by local painter Teresa Jarzynski. The exhibition will run from September 22,, 2018 through November 4, 2018 with a public opening reception on Saturday afternoon, September 22nd 2-4PM.

Teresa draws her inspiration from the French Landscape painter, Corot as well as the American Luminism movement of the 19th century. The atmospheric quality of her paintings evoke calm and a sense of reflection.

“There is an inescapable beauty and mystery in the nature that surrounds us, and an infinite amount of ways one can creatively interpret it. “

“The Inscape of my Landscape series strives to lean toward a sense of the ephemeral, a dream come and gone, a moment in time captured and then dissipated like the passing of a cloud.’

Jarzynski’s formal study of painting started in New York City, where she resided for twenty five years and received an associate’s degree in Fine Arts from the Fashion Institute of Technology in 2011. It culminated in Florence, Italy where she received her Bachelor of Science in Studio Art in 2012 from Lorenzo De’Medici school, via Marist University, New York. She currently resides in Bethesda, Maryland where she continues an (informal) education in painting through studio practice. Awards for her work include a Best in Show and an Honorable Mention, and her pieces have been published in several national magazines including the cover of HILLRAG, March 2018 issue. Jarzynski isrepresented by Foundry gallery in Washington DC.

The galleries at the Schlesinger Center are open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and during concert hall performances and public events.
