Artists featured: Caro Thompson Jackson and Amy Llewellyn Biggs. “These two artists share a joy of color and whimsy. Caro’s style borders impressionism, mainly concentrating on landscapes in oil. While mountains and southwest images capture her fancy, a recent trip to Guatemala sparked her love of color, inspiring new work. Amy leans more toward the abstract. Her series of charming, stylized portraiture is done on backgrounds with deep family ties. Acrylic, watercolor, and pastel make up her mediums. It is a happy exhibition. Come see their world through rose colored glasses.”
