In the A.I. Friedman Gallery this November we are featuring artist Phyllis Tarlow. We are excited to share such an accomplished local artist with everyone! Phyllis has been working full time as a fine art painter since the 1980’s. She has worked as a commercial artist, illustrator, portraitist and fine art painter. A strong focus for her are oil landscapes painted en plein air and in the studio. She also create commissioned portraits of people, animals and homes.
Phyllis holds a Masters Degree in Art Education/Art Therapy from the College of New Rochelle. She has also studied at the Cape Cod School of Art and credits it with giving her the tools needed to move into plein air painting.
Phyllis is a longtime member of the Mamaroneck Artists Guild, Garrison Art Center and The Scarsdale Art Association. She has shown her work at Images Gallery, Briarcliff Manor, The Flatiron Gallery, and has appeared in group shows throughout the area.
The collection of Phyllis’s work that we will be showing for the month of the November focuses on oil landscapes of the Hudson Valley. Phyllis says:
“The beauty of Nature has always held a strong place in my heard, but it was only after years spent working professionally as an illustrator and portrait artist that I started painting oil landscapes. Whether on location or in the studio, I now spend much of my time attempting to capture the atmosphere and colors of a particular scene and time of day in order to share my strong feelings about the wonders that surround us on a daily basis.”
We will have an opening reception on Saturday November 12th from 1pm to 3pm at our Port Chester location.
