Old Lyme PGN Library, 2 Library Lane, Old Lyme, CT
The Old Lyme Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library proudly announces its fall art exhibition for Landscapes Reimagined featuring Renni Ridgeway-Korsmeyer. The opening reception will take place on Friday October 16 from 5-7 pm. The public is invited to attend. All works are for sale and proceeds go to benefit the Library.
Renni holds graduate degrees in both education and psychiatric social work and spent many years as a teacher and psychotherapist. To her, it felt natural to move from working with people as a psychotherapist to expressing feeling on canvas as an artist.
She is an elected artist in the Madison Art Society, Guilford Art League, and the Essex Art Association, and is an associate artist in the Lyme Art Association, the Clinton Art Society and the Mystic Art Association. Her work frequently appears in the juried shows of these societies, as well as in other juried and invitational art exhibitions and galleries.
Renni lives in the Old Lyme, Connecticut art community, where she discovered her love of painting. She works in oils and pastels and enjoys each medium equally. In her subtle sensitive landscapes of the shore, sky and marshes, she notes that changes in nature, like the feelings and emotions of the artist and viewer unfold, shift, and evolve. Renni has studied with prominent artists and art teachers in the Old Lyme and has participated in plein air classes throughout New England.
Her work can be found in private collections in Connecticut, New England and throughout the United States. Renni continues to paint en plein air and in her studio in Old Lyme, CT.
Show runs until November 30.
