New Bern ArtWorks in New Bern, NC, Offers Works by Joanne Geisel

New Bern ArtWorks Fine Art Gallery in New Bern, NC, will present an exhibit of works by landscape painter Joanne Geisel, on view from July 12 through Aug. 9, 2013. A reception will be held on July 12, from 5-8pm, during the downtown New Bern ArtWalk.

Most of Geisel’s paintings reflect a moment in time where it is important to capture an immediate impression. She assess the composition, the values, the proportions and color, then she paints, all the while trying to maintain the initial feeling that drew her to paint the particular landscape, person or still life. Sometimes a small painting is completed in a single day. 

Painting since she was a child, and having majored in art in college, and after many years of doing other things, Geisel can now return to her love of oil painting and fulfill a lifelong dream. As a North Carolina landscape artist, Geisel paints the skies, beaches, boats and marshes. But finds other subjects and locations equally captivating. Painting outdoors en plein air always provides an enjoyable challenge and seems critical to understanding nature in new ways.

Teaching oil painting has given Geisel the opportunity to meet wonderful folks, focus on fundamental tools and concepts with them and have additional fun with oil painting.
