We are pleased to exhibit Peggi Kroll Robertsí richly executed,
expressive light-filled paintings pertaining to her life in California.
Peggi is originally from Canton, Ohio and later moved to Arizona where she
studied art at Arizona State University and then at the Art Center College
of Design in California.
Her work is a personal distillation of the warm, palpable light and
animated brushwork of such historic Impressionists as Edward Potthast and
Joaquin Sorolla and the painterly, abstracted expressive forms of such
artists as David Park and Richard Diebenkorn of the California Abstract
Expressionist school of figurative painting in the 1950ís and 1960ís.
Peggiís orchestration of dense, tactile richly-brushed surfaces, in
effect, makes the painting process the true subject of her art. However,
she simultaneously is able to capture the fleeting light and atmospheric
conditions of a particular place at a specific time of day with uncanny
Jim and I hope that you enjoy her works as much as we do.
