The Art League of the Chathams Fall Exhibit and Solo Show by Debora Thedinga
“NJ & Beyond-Landscape Paintings
Submitted by Ann Frommer
A solo show of paintings by Debora Thedinga, of Berkeley Heights, landscape and plein air painter, opens with a reception on Friday, September 13, 2019 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Debora’s paintings primarily focus on scenes from her home state of New Jersey and the surrounding areas. Her rich, impressionistic paintings depict familiar motifs of human design that establish a link between nostalgia and the landscape’s reality. Whether completed in her studio or on location (en plein air), Debora pushes herself to create pieces that evoke a mood that resonates with the viewer.
Debora says, “Painting images on a small scale is both challenging and rewarding. The challenge is to use color, value, and light in a way that allows an expansive vista to be viewed successfully through a small window. The creation of a mood that transports the viewer through this tiny porthole and into the landscape is the ultimate reward.”
Debora studied art at Glassboro State College and the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey. Besides painting, she works at Governor Livingston High School as an Educational Sign Language Interpreter. Her sharp observation skills and talent for visual explanation plays a key role in her ability to successfully provide American Sign Language/English interpretations for students and teachers.
The Art League of the Chathams also features its strolling gallery, displaying art of its member artists. The Fall Show runs from September 13 through December 3, 2019 during normal business hours. Art is available for sale. For more information, call 973-635-0845.
The Lundt-Glover Gallery is located in the Twp. of Chatham Municipal Building, 58 Meyersville Rd, Chatham, NJ 07928. The building is handicapped accessible and exhibition is free and open to the public.
