Five Seasons Family Sports Club
I’m excited to present my paintings with you in such a beautiful setting: Five Seasons Family Sports Club in Burr Ridge. This location is the sister club to the Northbrook, IL, Five Seasons which hosted the first exhibition devoted to my Implied Horizon series paintings.
Five Seasons is a premier year-round high-energy, high touch sports club focused on family leisure and entertainment, improving sports performance, and maintaining overall health.
The club is a wonderful setting for showcasing my work. And everyone at Five Seasons has been gracious and generous in helping me create this opportunity to share my paintings with you, their members, and the general public.
All of us are so excited to for you to see the show!
More About Implied Horizons
Implied Horizons: Watercolors By Anne Nordhaus-Bike presents 19 of my recent watercolors.
This series came about while I was exploring the interplay and synthesis that occur when disparate things come together along an axis, implying a horizon. I loved seeing how I could combine contrasting colors and even quite bold ones and still evoke a feeling of peace.
The Implied Horizons series also represents a new freedom for me. I allowed myself to embrace a spirit of play and experimentation while painting, resulting in works filled with loose and energetic brushwork. And I let my intuition guide me in choosing and applying the colors, some of which are combinations of pastels while others feature brighter colors with high contrast.
You’ll find that all these paintings carry an essence of peace, stillness, and tranquility. My wish for you is that you’ll feel my personality as you gaze at these works, share my joy in creating them, and gain a deeper sense of peacefulness.
Opening Reception: Friday, Dec. 7, 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
