Dawn Cohen Artist Reception:

Friday, February 13. 5 - 7 pm

Large-scale plein air painter Dawn Cohen believes in the power of direct observation in art and in the beauty of nature as an inexhaustible subject matter. When painting outside, she receives information from all the senses, feeling and experiencing the landscape, perceiving the heaviness or lightness in the atmosphere, recording the passage of time.
