Alice Whealin – Ebullience 01


Opening Reception: Saturday, May 4 from 5-8pm


The Fred Schnider Gallery of Art presents Alice Whealin Ebullience curated by David Carlson.

From Alice Whealin:
“I create paintings embracing ‘joy, exuberance, and liveliness’. My daily practice includes observation and photography of the local sky. These images of natural illumination and landscape elements become a source for light, line, and form in the work. I use color to evoke emotion. My latest compositions connect landscape and anatomy. Figurative, face, and landscape references emerge over time in my abstract imagery.

I combine gestural drawing, saturated color, and organic forms. By applying ink and watercolor directly onto paper surfaces, I develop each painting individually over the course of weeks or months. Within the beautiful, sacred space of nature, one may find the strength of the human spirit renewed. Following these themes, I strive to exude an ebullience that offers comfort.”
