FREE Artist Reception - Artwork by Vriginia Briatico  (6,967 Views)

Light refreshments provided.

Harry C. Barnes Memorial Nature Center
175 Shrub Road
Bristol, CT 06010

Virginia Briatico of Unionville looks no further than her living room window overlooking Lake Garda to find inspiration for her finely detailed pastel pencil paintings of birds, flowers and furry creatures. Briatico discovered her love of working with pastel pencils after taking a workshop at the Farmington River Art Studio. And then there was no turning back.

The artist says she works from digital photographs of nature captured with her Canon Powershot camera. “I’ll often see waterfowl on the lake through my living room window, and take off in my kayak to photograph them,” Briatico says. Examples of those sightings include ospreys, broad-winged hawks, great blue herons, belted kingfishers, mallards and mergansers. All are subjects of her pastel paintings, but Briatico says her favorite wildlife portraits are those she has created of various species of owls that she has photographed at various locations over time.

Virginia Briatico’s artwork will remain on display at Barnes Nature Center until June 1st.
