ArtReach St. Croix is pleased to announce the opening of Bold Journeys, an upcoming exhibition at the ArtReach gallery. Highlighting vibrant colors and sharp contrasts, this show features three artists working in acrylic and oil paint, mixed media, and Saori weaving.

Marianne Barratt (Stillwater, MN) is a painter who focuses on an impressionistic style, capturing the light and magic of landscapes and figurative subjects. Her process encourages an organic development of her ideas, embracing the challenge of laying colors onto the surface, and working through both struggles and moments of "flow" until it has taken on a voice and a life of its own. She seeks to capture scenes that are momentary and fleeting, subtle and mysterious, and expresses them through broad, textured brushstrokes.

Becky Benson (Stillwater, MN) is an abstract artist who values an intuitive and instinctual method to her painting. Most of her pieces begin with a single line to open and ‘free up’ the canvas. From there, she utilizes bold strokes and gradations in equal part. Because of this, her works are very process-based and bolster vibrant and contrasting colors and shapes that are both fluid and definitive. As she puts it, she must trust herself to, “develop a piece to its fullest potential without expectation in the result.”

Chiaki O’Brien (Bloomberg, MN) is a Saori weaver who, originally from Japan, has integrated herself as a leader and teacher in the art community through her passion for traditional methods of weaving. Her style of work is fluid and specialized to be fun, unique, and indicative of there not being a ‘right answer’ in art. She relates this principle to life, and how she experiences weaving as a representation of community. Through her bold colors and dense patterns, she hopes to plant pieces of herself in her works, and that is what gives them life.

A Closing Party will be held with the artists on Saturday, June 27 from 12:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.
