Located in an historic cabin, Shari Brownfield Fine Art is the new gallery on the block. For Fall Arts Festival she shows work by four artists.

“Landscape: Reimagined” brings together contemporary artists with something unfamiliar and unexpected to show about landscapes we have seen many times.

“I think people around the country are currently finding solace and comfort in our natural world,” Brownfield said, noting trees with huge root systems and cloud formations. “These elements connect us all in some way during a period of flux.”

Brownfield, who specializes in collection management, appraisals, and buying and selling, is in her first physical gallery.

“This is my first year with a brick-and-mortar space during Fall Arts Festival,” she said, “and while I recognize how different this season is, I’m still really excited to bring together a group of four contemporary American landscape painters who are creating thoughtful work that we can all relate to in some manner.”

Artists in “Landscape; Reimagined” include Jeff Quinn, who is inspired by deceased painters like Thomas Moran.

Tori White works with oils on natural wood and thinks of her works as “scenes from an unwritten movie in my head,” according to a press release from the gallery.

Encaustics painter Pamela Gibson works in wax, pigment and fire. And Sean Cavanaugh creates detailed, realistic watercolors of the surfaces of trees.

“There is opportunity for wonder, mystery and intrigue in ‘Landscape: Reimagined,’” said Brownfield, “where what appears to be familiar is also the unexpected, and where moments of the sublime appear in our midst.”

The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays and by appointment. For information about Shari Brownfield Fine Art, visit ShariBrownfield.com or call 307-413-9262.
