Everglades National Park. Through Feb 28, 2011.
A new exhibit featuring the oil paintings of Linda Apriletti is on display at the Ernest Coe Visitor Center Gallery in Everglades National Park through 28, 2011.
These paintings created over the past 12 months include both plein air and studio works from both the southern and western sections of Everglades National Park. Among the many scenes captured by her during those visits are the hammocks and pinelands, vast saw grass marshes, cypress and coastal prairies, mangroves and shallow lakes.
Linda Apriletti, a resident and native of Miami Springs, Florida, is a member of Oil Painters of America and Plein Air Florida.
Apriletti exhibits regularly and her paintings hang in numerous private collections in the US and abroad. She is an avid outdoorswoman who draws upon her time outdoors to capture inspirational moments with her brush. Although the majority of Linda’s painting is done on location en plein air, she also works in her studio creating larger paintings from her outdoor field studies, sketches and photograph references.
