Lynn Gilchrist is in love
with Door County- its beauty, its people, its hidden wonders, its
essence.... and it shows, in some way, in almost every painting she does .
"I go to nature for
contemplation, recreation, enrichment, and wonder. Being able to run
outdoors and to paint outdoors in Door County is a great joy, with Lake
Michigan, the fields and woods all around. The pursuits intertwine: running
can open one's eyes and be a form of meditation and doing art can feel like
a physical race in itself. While plain air painting the artist may be
staring but is no longer day-dreaming. One needs to paint fast and in
the process makes quick choices that are usually more true to one's
The exhibit features work
from every decade of Gilchrist's expansive career and interests which means
that in the midst of landscapes and nature studies, you'll find dogs
watching tv, various self-portraits, girl-friends and just bright,
whimsical paintings (including pastels) meant to be fun and engaging.
She quotes Henry Miller's vow to himself to do her work "calmly,
joyously, and recklessly."
