August First Friday with Jonathan Frazier
Posted by Linda Atiyeh - July 29, 2017.
Gallery 30 will host local landscape painter Jonathan Frazier during the First Friday reception on August 4, 2017
Frazier’s landscape paintings have been exclusively represented by Gallery 30 for over a decade. Jonathan paints in the field as much as possible, exploring townscapes and landscapes in the Gettysburg area and beyond. These are not historical paintings, but rather vibrantly colored, expressive interpretations of Gettysburg as it appears today. Gettysburg visitors can frequently find him plein air painting in rural Adams County and among the monuments and historic points in the battlefield.
Jonathan’s highly creative oil paintings often depict sweeping scenes of the landscape as viewed from higher vantage points. In addition to landscapes, Jonathan captures the historic architecture of the region creating elegant compositions that frequently juxtapose old and new. His townscape paintings are known for their engaging use of color, light, architectural lines and the repeated elements that appear in buildings.
Meet Jonathan Frazier, explore local art, and enjoy a wine and cheese reception at Gallery 30 from 5:30-8:30 PM on Friday, August 4, 2017. Gallery 30 is located at 26 York Street in Gettysburg. For more information visit www.gallery30.com or call 717-334-0335.
