Imagined Landscapes

 Southwest Serenity 01

Roberta Parry
Southwest Serenity
May 1 - June 30, 2018

Opening Reception
Sunday, May 6, 2-4 pm

The landscapes exhibited in Roberta Parry’s “Southwest Serenity” contain strong yetlyrical watercolors reflecting the impact on her work of light and color. For her, “watercolor seems to best capture the vibrancy and translucence of sky, earth, water, and all that grows and travels therein.”

She takes her subjects from photos gathered in short and long drives around the Southwest and other parts of the country. Though she has worked with other media, she loves the spontaneity of transparent watercolor, its freedom of flow, the surprises, and the challenge to master or at least control the independence of its gentle yet willful nature. As she says, “I may know where I want to go, but getting there is always an adventure.”

Parry’s work has been exhibited in solo and group shows in Santa Fe, Clovis, and Madrid, New Mexico, and in Tucson, Arizona. She is an Artist in Residence at the Inn and Spa at Loretto, Santa Fe, and participates regularly in the annual Santa Fe Studio Tour. Her painting “Fallen but not Bowed” was accepted into the juried Watercolor USA 2016 exhibit at the Springfield, Missouri, art museum.
