The UCAR Community Art Program proudly features two new exhibits:
Oil Paintings by Theresa Beckemeyer
Color and the sense of movement are the main principles that attract Theresa Beckemeyer to a painting. She strives to convey the motion, mood and beauty in everyday life by the joining of colors and contrasts. Beckemeyer believes that every painting develops its own unique form. Her challenge is to correctly “read” what the developing painting demands. She uses a limited palette to keep the colors in check…so a harmony is developed. She uses paintbrushes, palette knives and her fingers in order to keep the paint strokes interesting. Beckemeyer's work will be on exhibit in UCAR Gallery l of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Mesa Lab November 30, 2015 to January 30, 2016.
Photography by Glenn Randall
Glenn Randall’s artistic philosophy can be summed up in eight words: master the craft and the art will follow. A great landscape photograph has to begin with an emotional reaction to the scene, but it cannot end there. Photography today is highly technical as well as emotional. You can have the most profound experience imaginable, but if you haven't mastered the craft of photography, the images you produce will fail. Capturing what you saw is easy: just put the camera to your eye and push the button. Capturing what you felt is harder, and capturing what you felt in such a clear and compelling way that you can spray some ink on a piece of paper and make your viewer feel the same emotions you felt when you captured the image ‒ that is when landscape photography can truly become an art. Randall's work will be on exhibit in UCAR Gallery ll of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Mesa Lab November 30, 2015 to January 30, 2016.
