"Capturing the Moment: A Plein Air Passion"

with Fatima Young

Please join us on October 4th at 5 PM for the October First Friday Art Walk reception featuring works by Fatima Young.  The title of the exhibit is "Capturing the Moment: A Plein Air Passion". Traveling to Majestic places has inspired Fatima to paint special landscapes as a part of her current works.  She hopes to connect viewers through her process...being one with nature and finding simplicity within complexity.

The reception will be in the main meeting room of the Bainbridge Public Library and the exhibit will be on display during the entire month.

Podcast about Exhibit
Fatima Young

When her husband passed several years ago, she found hiking to be her therapy and painting to be her healing. Now, as a plein air painter, she studies nature at its purest. Her intent is always to reduce the complex forms of nature into simple shapes and strokes, letting the viewer imagine the rest. Recapturing the moment in much larger studio paintings has broadened her vision and simplified the images even more.

She uses the palette knife to catch the earth's rich moods and mixes bolder chroma to bring out light and dark contrast. Her works are distinctively Russian impressionism with a twist of the sublime.

Fatima Young was born of Russian heritage in Europe. She received degrees from F.I.T. and C.W. Post University in New York. Bainbridge Island has been home for almost 30 years.

She invites you to experience tranquility through these serene landscapes. You can also view Fatima's work on her website, www.FatimaYoungArt.com
