This fall Jorgensen Gallery will feature 366 canvases, painted plein air daily over the course of an entire year on Horsebarn Hill in Storrs by award-winning artist and educator, Blanche Şerban. Alternating panoramic views, local scenes, and minute subjects, the project poetically documents the light and the atmosphere on the hill rolling through the seasons. Based in Storrs, Şerban said “I look to paint the air between things that hold the shape of seen and unseen, the transient beauty of changing light, the passing hours and seasons, the fragile balance between the wealth of the material world and the simplicity of formless.”
