Zier Gallery’s new show “Poetic Views: Artists’ Paintings with Poetry” is a colorful collaboration of paintings by artists Elizabeth “Betsy” LaRowe and Dana Zier, and poetry by Meighan LaRowe-Perry.
According to a news release from the gallery, LaRowe explores watercolor in a vivid, expressive style. Striving to capture a moment and a mood in time has been the driving force for LaRowe’s work, and the viewer can connect instantly with the fluid marks and expressive color. LaRowe’s focus of color and light enhances the work’s lyrical quality. Her works have been recently published in “Splash 16,” “Splash 18” and “Splash 20,” North Light Books’ fine art publications.
Her art will be displayed with poetry by LaRowe-Perry, her daughter, who created a poetic form called “anem,” which in Biblical terms means “two fountains.”
LaRowe and LaRowe-Perry have self-published two books based on their paintings and poetry.
The poems in the show were written in response to LaRowe and Zier’s work.
Zier capitalizes on vivid light, as well as variations within the color associations in her work. Colors dance and lead the eye as they flow and repeat through her oil paintings.
The exhibit will open Saturday and run through March 9. Zier Gallery is located at 120 S. Main St. in Bridger. While there, visitors are also invited to enjoy a warm drink at Perkatory Tea, located within the gallery.
