"AN ARTISTIC JOURNEY" by Barbara Fox

The Tri-County Arts Council presents “An Artistic Journey, From watercolors to oils and back again” by Barbara Fox, the show will run from July 12- August 30 in the Peg Bothner Gallery at the Tri-County Arts Council, 110 West State Street in Olean, NY. 

The show documents the artist’s transition from watercolor to oil paints and back through paintings, notes and sketches showing this exciting process of discovery with Barbara Fox.

“Many artists are happy and successful focusing on one particular medium or subject-matter. I’ve never found that for myself, and ventured through flowers, still life, portraits, and landscapes, with watercolors, charcoal, and oil paint. Maybe I will never find the pot of gold, but I am having a wonderful time learning, experimenting, and facing challenges.”-Barbara Fox
