      Joni Pienkowski: Landscape: Another Dimension

      The Center for the Arts’ first one-person painting exhibition features Joni Pienkowski, one of the most prominent artists living here. Rendered in oil on birch panel with acrylic, charcoal, graphite, and Prismacolor pencil, Pienkowski’s abstract paintings evoke the poetic power and life force of nature. Steeped in a rich palette of earth tones, highlighted with dashes of burnt oranges, yellows, and whites, the paintings seem imbued with an nascent, though potent, energy. Wisps of pencil, pen, and ink spontaneously extend, curl, dance, and retreat over the picture plane, unfurling like the wind. With titles such as Leaving Seeds, Wind Blown Answers, and Thermal Emergence, these works, for the artist, suggest such natural phenomena as pollination, gestation, and transformation. Pienkowski captures the dynamism of nature in her art—crystallized in a latent, almost expectant, but universal moment.
