Chapel Hill Artist Turns Travels Into Art


Chapel Hill, NC, February 23, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Artist Kimberly Alvis recently completed “Fajardo, Puerto Rico,” a 20hx24w oil on canvas painting inspired by a moment on a recent journey she made to Puerto Rico.

“I was eating dinner at a little restaurant on the water and I was staring at this scene the whole time,” Alvis said of the painting that captures two small sailboats, mainsails down, bobbing near the shore on an azure sea as masses of white clouds drift overhead.

Alvis, a representational artist, looks for subject matter whenever she travels. A trip to Sedona, Arizona, last year resulted in a series of paintings depicting the red sandstone formations that glow orange or rusty red depending on the time of day. A visit to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, resulted in paintings that captured human moments on the shore.

A collection of Alvis’ oil paintings and charcoal sketches were displayed in the Carrboro Town Hall last October. Four of her oil on canvas and panel still-lifes were included in Somerhill Gallery’s Holiday Exhibition in Durham in December.

According to Somerhill director Joseph Rowand, Alvis’ work offers “a style reminiscent of the 17th century Dutch and Spanish masters. We encounter with Kim's work an artist who celebrates the past, deploying paint and light to exquisitely delineate her own compositions.”

Kimberly Alvis is represented by Somerhill Gallery and The Little Art Gallery and Craft Collection in Raleigh. For more information and to see more of the artist’s work, visit www.alvisart.com.
