Hidden Waters

Pastels by Donna Finley

July 22, 2022 - August 21, 2022

Ventures Gallery

Opening Reception: Friday, July 22, 2022 (5pm to 7pm).

“Living on the DelMarVa peninsula we are surrounded by water. For the majority of residents, tourists, and many artists the Atlantic Ocean and the Bay, sights on the surface and life underneath, take center stage in terms of defining the iconic natural landscape of our region. There are other sides to life here that have visual stories to be told. One of those, and the one I am primarily inspired to paint, are the hidden waters in out of the way places that residents and tourists hardly ever see. This exhibition of pastel paintings highlights these hidden waters, especially those scenes where the trees along the banks form either a back drop or boundaries to these hidden waters.”
