Lake Worth, Fla. –September 30, 2013– The Cultural Council of Palm Beach County is pleased to announce its latest Solo Exhibition of original works by Annette Rawlings, scheduled to open Oct. 12 in the Lawrence A. Sanders Foundation Artist Resource Center at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, 601 Lake Avenue, in Lake Worth. The exhibition is free and runs through Nov. 9.
Annette Rawlings has been compared to notable modern masters over her 40-plus year career. The simplicity of Rawlings’ paintings in style and composition lend a lyrical yet controlled fluidity to the canvas. Her reclining figurative forms flow effortlessly into subtle landscapes emblazoned with the colors of the southwestern sky. Her portraits, with hues developed specifically for each painting, imbue a fancifully honest view of each sitter. Modigliani’s portraiture, Gauguin’s colors and Leger’s lines influenced Rawlings’ work, though her painting speaks with a self-composed voice all her own.
“We are pleased to show the work of Annette Rawlings,” said Rena Blades, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. “Her work and career prove she is a prime example of a professional artist in Palm Beach County.”
The public is invited to meet Rawlings at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County for A Gallery Talk with Annette Rawlings on Saturday, Oct. 19 at 3 p.m. To register, please contact Nichole Hickey, the Cultural Council’s Artist Services Manager at: 561.472.3336. Free to members; $10 for non-members.
