Visual artist Alli Johnston's first solo exhibition, Watercolours, opens Friday night at JL Gallery on Broadway.
The exhibition features a variety of works that she painted from 2009 to this year and includes some landscapes with a sprinkling of architecture and interiors.
“As I made selections for the show, I was struck by the repeated image of winter trees," said Johnston of her choices in a media release on the exhibition.
The exhibition includes three pieces depicting trees in snowy landscapes, each painted at a different time in the past five years. "The silence of a forest in winter has always resonated with me. I love the soft light and blue shadows of winter and always imagine that the trees are sleeping; resting up for spring under a blanket of snow,” she said.
The exhibition opens Friday night with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. It will be on display at the gallery until Oct. 12.
