Paintings featuring an artist’s impressions of the Atlantic seashore will be featured in an exhibition at Canfin Gallery in Tarrytown from April 28 to May 20. The artist is Tjasa Owen, whose works are found in private and corporate collections as well as galleries around the country.
Owen grew up in New York and earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Virginia. She studied at the National Academy of Fine Art in Manhattan, the Academy of Art in San Francisco and Coupa in Paris.
Having grown up by the Atlantic seashore, she is particularly drawn to its skies and dunes. Sometimes she writes notations and phrases from her sketchbooks on her canvases, giving her work a sense of time and place. She thinks of her paintings as visual journals, reproduced on canvas and then sent out into the world as postcards to be shared.
An opening reception is scheduled for April 28 from 5 to 8 p.m. Canfin Gallery is at 39 Main St. in Tarrytown.
