"Elements: New Work by Jan Aronson"
2001-05-18 until 2001-07-22
Bayly Art Museum
Charlottesville, VA, USA

Elements: New Work by Jan Aronson, on view May 18 through July 22, illustrates Aronsonís command of media, from drawing and pastel to watercolor and oil. Her sumptuous colors and vibrant forms stimulate the senses leading one to contemplate the grandeur of nature and man's place in the natural world. A catalog accompanies the exhibition with an essay by Jonathan Goodman, a New York-based editor and writer who specializes in modern and contemporary art.

Aronsonís nature explorations work on many levels. Her cloud formations appeal to both emotional and mystical states with their ever-changing imagery. Her landscapes, inspired by her travels, from New England to Peru, from Kenya to the Caribbean, reference place as both a physical location and an abstract metaphorical site.

Aronson received her B.A. from the University of New Orleans and M.F.A. from Pratt Institute in New York. She has served as a visiting artist and instructor in museums, art schools, and universities. Since 1986 she has painted full-time and has participated in more than 40 group exhibitions.

Her solo exhibitions include Portraits of Place (2001) at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, and a 10-year retrospective in 1999 at the Thomas J. Welsh Art Gallery, Quick Center for the Arts, Fairfield University in Connecticut.

The Bayly Art Museum is open to the public without charge Tuesday through Sunday 1 to 5 p.m. The museum is located on Rugby Road, a short distance from the Rotunda. A small parking lot for visitors is located behind the museum.
