Los Angeles County Art Museum Docent Council Visits TAG Gallery
Joan Ransohoff with LACMA Docent Council
Joan Ransohoff and Grace Swanson talked about their current exhibition at TAG Gallery to members of the Los Angeles County Art Museum’s Docent Council during the group’s visit to Bergamot Station on Wednesday, March 17.
Ransohoff spoke about her experience as a plein-air painter and her creative process in the development of her new landscape and still life paintings. Inspired by her love of color, Ransohoff’s oil paintings explore the relationship between her outdoor painterly practices and indoor still life scenes, and how these two elements came together in her current show titled “Colors of Nature”.
Swanson discussed the history and development of her watercolor and acrylic paintings beginning with an early desire to focus on formal elements of color and composition to recent works on flowers and succulents in her show “Favorites”.
The paintings of Ransohoff and Swanson, along with the figurative paintings of Ernie Marjoram will continue to be on display at TAG Gallery through March 27.
