Artists’ Group Monthly Show: January 2022

Artist of the Month: Carole Romm “Troubled Times.”

Carole Romm is the artist of the month for January. Some of you may remember her pieces displayed in our “Footprints” exhibition a couple of months ago. She paints mostly in oil and cold wax, a mixture that makes the paint very creamy and tactile.
Her show is titled “Troubled Times.” On this topic she writes, “In the last two years we have lived through a pandemic, the murder of George Floyd, protests, raging forest fires, a rancorous election and an armed mob breaching the Capitol.” In 2020 and 2021, she retreated to her studio and took refuge in painting. Carole writes, “Ultimately, the pandemic has changed how we interact with other humans. So much of our work life, cultural life, and social life is now remote.” Her painting, ZOOM LIFE is her portrait of these times.

NOTE: There will be no Artist Reception this month.
