Ardrea Harris at Homey Gallery

An exhibition of wonderful new nature paintings by Andrea Harris will open tomorrow at Homey Gallery, located at 3656 N. Lincoln Avenue in Chicago. I dropped by the gallery last week to get a preview of Harris' new work but most of the pieces had not yet been delivered. There was—however—a few of her new works to review. I was impressed. Harris' technique has matured and the presentation of the mystical environments elevates the imagery to a new level of wonderful. The exhibition—featuring oil and cold wax paintings—will continue through October 26th. Tomorrow's reception will include a book signing of "In the Forest and Beyond" which features Harris' imagery. Harris will be funding the planting of a tree with the purchase of each book... and a grove of trees for each painting sold. The reception for Harris will be from 6-9pm—tomorrow—Saturday, October 3rd. If you have the opportunity to see this exhibition, it will be worth your while.

  1. I would hang this one in my house. Beautiful and dreamy. Love the lavender at the bottom. I want to rest there.

  2. In troubled times we turn to art and nature. Harris' work takes care of us. Gives us a safe place to express our woes and not be judged or stared at, but just to beheld by the magical wisdom of the trees. Beautiful painting, I love how it transforms your viewing experience.
