The Stover Mill Art Gallery opens its 60th season April 6, with an exhibition of oil paintings by Cindy Roesinger.
“Rhapsodies in Oil” showcases her unique style reflecting intuitively created landscapes and still lifes.
Roesinger’s work is created largely alla prima (wet into wet) using a palette knife as her dominant tool.
Emphasizing a more organic aesthetic by expressing spontaneous, direct feeling, there is an energy and vibration created in her current work that emphasizes essential movement, form and color, while eliminating extraneous detail, leaving the viewer with the origin of the image, and the moment that inspired its creation.
“I often align my work closely to what feels like musical composition to me,” she said.
Roesinger’s professional career began in 1984 in New York City at the International Center for Photography and Magnum Photos, leading to a successful career as a photo editor. A self-taught painter, she transitioned from photography into oil painting in 2005, after moving to Bucks County.
Roesinger’s internationally acclaimed work has garnished awards and inclusion in notable invitational and solo exhibitions and galleries. She currently resides and works in Doylestown.
The opening receptions are 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, April 6 and 7. Show dates are 1 to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays April 6 through 28. Thirty percent of the proceeds will be donated to help more than 50 local organizations and to help preserve the mill.
The historic Stover Mill Gallery is located on the banks of the Delaware River, 852 River Road, Erwinna. Admission is free and handicapped accessible.
