2022 Community Exhibits

Inspired by New Zealand: Paintings by Cindy Triplett

July 15–August 26, 2022

Reception: Friday, August 19, 5:30 – 8:00 pm

Local artist Cindy Triplett shares her love of New Zealand. Watercolor and acrylic paintings animate personal glimpses of remote wonder, expressing gratitude and nostalgia for this special place.

The expressiveness and abstraction found in these paintings are the results of Cindy’s internalization of impressions gained through her travels in 2019 to the North and South Islands of New Zealand, known locally as Aotearoa, (the land of the long white cloud).  They are reflections of her visual impressions and feelings abstracted from memory, such as of the ample quantity of fresh water, the changing atmospheric conditions, and the indigenous Maori culture. The work is lively, joyous, and captures the natural beauty of New Zealand. When viewing her work one can almost feel the wet cool water and the rays of sunshine. Cindy works in watercolor and acrylic media on paper.

Cindy Triplett was born and raised along the US West Coast and now lives in Ashland, Oregon. She has been painting since 1978. Cindy is most known for her landscapes and contemporary abstracts. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Art with a Painting Emphasis and a Master’s Degree in Education from Southern Oregon University. Cindy has taught art education to secondary students at high schools in Oregon and California.
