Fine Art & Crafts by Local Artists

Sobel
October First Friday

October 6, 5-8 pm
Paintings by Christi Sobel

The Kew Gardens, botanical gardens in southwest London, are not only the largest and most diverse botanical and mycological collections in the world, they are also where artist Christi Sobel served an internship in botanical illustration in England. Gallery 54 is pleased with the opportunity to introduce Christi to the Central New York community as its guest artist for October.

A selection of Christi's latest creations will be exhibited and Christi herself will be on hand to greet our guests from 5 to 8 pm, Friday, October 6.

Christi traces her creative interests to her childhood when she started drawing mushrooms and horses. She subsequently trained in scientific illustration, what she refers to as “that obscure field which melds science, natural history, and fine art” obtaining a bachelor's degree in biology and art at Eastern University in St. Davids, PA. In addition to her internship with the Kew Gardens, she completed grad school in science illustration at UC Santa Cruz, in California.

Her work reflects what she finds “beautiful and interesting in the Creation around us,” she says, “bringing attention to the details that might otherwise go unnoticed.”

Her show at Gallery 54 will feature acrylic paintings on boards. She noted that she “likes to let the wood grain and organic shapes show and become part of the design.” Christi closely observes the natural world and credits her love of travel and the way she is able to absorb the environment around her with helping her capture her impressions and feelings about the places she visits.

“Art is an organic process which is always evolving,” she says. She's inspired by what she finds striking in the natural world and the ability of her art to bring attention to unnoticed and colorful detail in clean elegant design. She finds it particularly rewarding to raise environmental awareness and communicate meaningfully through her art.

This show opening will also feature the music of Jane Zell along with wine and light refreshments.
