    Event Description:
    Tracy Lévesque, A Demonstration in Acrylic Sunday, February 18, 2018 o 2 - 4pm A nature enthusiast and an animal rights advocate for over 20 years, Lévesque's chromatic paintings are a life-long love affair with nature and a tribute to the incredible world we live in. Born in the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts and now working from her studio in Lowell, MA., Lévesque spent her early years immersed in the beauty of this breathtaking rural countryside. Now, working as a full time artist and traveling up and down the east coast every year for exhibits and shows, Tracy finds her inspiration anywhere nature can be found. A self-taught artist, Lévesque started out as a realistic painter but quickly abandoned realism for an impressionistic, symbolic style that spoke more to the psychological realities of human existence rather than the more conventional interpretations of it. Using color as the trigger for emotion, texture for visceral response and line as the conductor of cognitive process, Lévesque's work attempts to mimic the reaction we have when we are actually physically out in nature, enveloped by the beauty and awe that the natural world evokes. "I call it Fairytale Realism, " Lévesque says, "but if it makes you happy and lets you escape the chaos of everyday existence for a moment and dream a little bit, then I've done my job well." Join us for an inspiring afternoon. Speak with the artist and join with the artists of the Guild at the closing Reception as the celebrate their annual exhibit "The World Through the Artists' Eyes!" and find out what it means to be part of this community of artists. Perhaps you will be inspired to take a class or join the group. See more of her work visit https://tracylevesque.us
