vivianripley.jpgIn 21 watercolors and pastel drawings, Vivian Ripley explores color in the landscape and how it is affected by light and shade. Ripley works in pastel, watercolor, acrylic, and colored pencil—sometimes in combination. She particularly enjoys painting in a natural setting, stating, “The whole body, and its senses, is involved with nature because of the urgency to depict an increasingly changing scene.”

Ripley’s technique was spotlighted in The Watercolor Landscape Techniques of 23 International Artists in 2003. She resides in Columbus and is active in the Central Ohio Watercolor Society, Ohio Watercolor Society, and the Ohio Plein Air Society, and has won many awards. With this exhibition, the Zanesville Art Center continues its series of solo exhibitions recognizing contemporary Ohio artists.
