On the horizon is a one-woman show featuring new works by Florida artist Linda Richichi. The complex yet vibrant brushstrokes of Linda’s pieces are a guaranteed delight to anyone that admires fine art. This show features all new Sarasota scenes, sunsets, and Richichi’s captivating clouds. Viewers will never want to leave the coastal environment her pieces convey.
Early in her career, Richichi quickly found national acclaim as a portrait painter, but in 2001 she felt a calling for the wild. She turned to plein air painting, as she found that Mother Nature had the healing energy needed to recover from a deep personal loss. This opened her to a revelation that art can help to heal us.
Richichi has made a huge impact in the Sarasota art scene by teaching and encouraging other local artists. In just a few years, she has acquired a massive fan base. Her work has exhibited extensively around North America, including the prestigious National Arts Club in New York City as part of the Pastel Society of America, of which she is a signature member. She is also a current member of the Oil Painters of America and a signature member of the NY, CA, and International Plein Air Painters. Richichi’s works have been featured in both local and national magazines, adding to her prestige as a plein air painter. Her most moving pieces in this exhibit are scenes of Sarasota: she is sought after by many collectors throughout the area.
The artist has exclusively given the 530 Burns Gallery a new series showcasing her latest pieces. You’ll be surrounded by colorful, modern semitropical landscapes with a unique view of Sarasota and its skies. The show opens Friday, December 3, and continues through January 6. Whether you’re new to Richichi’s work or are an existing collector, On the Horizon will be an inspiring experience.
530 Burns Gallery will be showcasing a new exhibition every First Friday of the month, containing new works from each artist. Next month, we will feature a group show with all new works by Bettina Sego and Joan Konkel.
