Time Trapped one person show, September  5-30, 2019, Partners Gallery, Ft Bragg, CA

In September Virginia Sharkey is showing seven large acrylic paintings reflecting her continuing exploration on the subject of time. The artist begins with a feeling tone manifested by color, augmented by the ingredients of space, gravity and energy which when combined produce their own kind of resonance––harmonious or not–– but with a result that is evocative and mysterious.

July 6 to July 31

Partners Gallery, Ft. Bragg, CA

Time Traps: Poetry into Painting consists of the days of the week series Sharkey painted as part of her on-going investigation into the pictorial depiction of time.  Inspired by medieval books of the hours, the paintings were first conceived through writing poems, included in this exhibit, which were then translated into the highly saturated color fields of these seven sensual large-scale abstract paintings.
