The Pratt Museum Announces Exhibit Opening: Light in Bloom
Homer, Alaska (January 16, 2024) – Pratt Museum
The Pratt Museum is excited to announce our Spring exhibition, Light in Bloom. This exhibition features the works of Valdez artist Faith Revell, who was inspired by changing light and ensuing form when creating this group of oil paintings.
Revell is an East Coast transplant and painter who has lived in Valdez, Alaska, for the past twelve years. Valdez is a remote and remarkably beautiful place situated between the Chugach Mountains and Prince William Sound in South Central Alaska. Wind, weather and snow dominate there. Seismic shifts occur often. As a result, Revell studies natural phenomena and human geography; observes and documents light changing and life unfolding; immerses herself in remarkable experiences and navigates an environment of extremes. Then, she offers up a visceral, lively painted expression and work that embodies movement and the play of elemental forces.
Twenty-six pieces of her work will be on display in the Main Gallery of the Pratt Museum from February 9 to May 12.
A First Friday Exhibition of the show will take place on March 1 beginning at 4pm and will be free to the public.
Stay tuned for more information about a possible workshop.
