Remembrance of Things Past, New Paintings by Christine Rooney

On Sunday September 30th, the Spruce Creek Gallery in Nellysford will
host an Opening Reception for local artist Christine Rooney from 3
until 5 pm.

Rooney uses a variety of mediums to create ethereal landscapes
including pastels, pencils. encaustics and oils. She applies these to
handmade papers and canvases to create what she like to refer to as
“visionary landscapes”.

She says, “My desire is to present landscapes where the viewers feel
they have been somewhere or sometime. Places that evoke reflection,
renewal, and peace. Trees, land and light become symbols of
individuality, physical space and spirituality. All my paintings are
of real places, mostly in Nelson County, but seen through ‘new eyes'”.

The Spruce Creek Gallery is open Wednesdays through Sundays from 11 am
until 5 pm and is located at 1368 Rockfish Valley Highway (Route 151)
one mile south of Nellsyford in Nelson County. The gallery features a
unique mix of fine art and distinctive craft by local and regional
