Sunrise/Sunset: Interpretations of Dawn and Dusk in Oil

Sunrise/Sunset: Interpretations of Dawn and Dusk in Oil
Area Artists Association - Laurie Schirmer Carpenter
Nov. 1 - Nov. 30, 2014
NIPSCO Small Art Education Studio
Opening Reception Nov. 7, 2014, 5-8pm

Sunrise/Sunset: Interpretations of Dawn and Dusk In Oil are paintings by Area Artists Association's Laurie Schirmer Carpenter. Carpenter explains, "Sunrises and sunsets have many different meanings for each or us.  Sailors see red sky at morning as a warning and red sky at night as serenity.  Lovers see sunsets as romance.  Sunrise begins the optimistic “first day of the rest of your life”.  Sunset can be the end to a glorious day or the harbinger of “things that go bump in the night”.  Both have metaphorical meanings in art, literature, music and film, especially concerning birth and death.  All ancient mythologies have particular gods and goddesses of dawn and dusk.  I thought about these different interpretations and our universal attraction to these times of day while creating these oil paintings.  There is mystery and promise and order in these fleeting moments and trying to capture them in paint is a frustrating, yet fulfilling, endeavor."
