"Leslie Pearson: Along the Journey"
2005-05-27 until 2005-06-17
Market Square Gallery
Fayetteville, NC, USA United States of America

The Market Square Gallery will feature Along the Journey, the landscape paintings of local artist Leslie Pearson, May 27 through June 17. This is Pearsonís first solo exhibition in the North Carolina area. Leslie Pearsonís work represents a wide range of subject matter and style. Working primarily in oil and acrylic paint, she explores various avenues of interest including realism, text, abstraction, texture and non-objective imagery which she uses as a parallax for ideas, patterns, and emotions.

The selections from Along the Journey illustrate isolated instances, moments in time and places which represent significant points of realization for Pearson. Through these landscapes and seascapes, she recreates meditative environments which suggest both the loneliness of solitude and peaceful reflection. Pearsonís work is often a response to the beauty and simplicity of her natural surroundings which she uses as motifs to describe the idea of infinite reality and encourage contemplation.

Pearson is a professional artist based in Fayetteville, North Carolina. A Missouri native, Pearson earned a Bachelorís degree in fine art from Southeast Missouri State University (1998) and was heavily involved in community arts programming as the Assistant Director of the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri. In 2000 she moved to England where she earned a Masterís degree in Museum Studies at the University of Newcastle.

Upon returning to the States, Pearson joined the Army as a photojournalist for a military intelligence unit and freelanced as an Arts and Entertainment journalist for the Augusta Chronicle, a daily newspaper in Augusta, Georgia. She now works full-time from her home/studio and operates the Pearson Gallery.
