Hello Doli: Works by Doli Biondillo
August 6, 2021 @ 11:00 am - September 6, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
Opening reception Friday, August 6, 5 – 7 p.m.
The gallery will feature Hello Doli: Works by Doli Biondillo from Friday, August 6 through Labor Day Monday, September 6, 2021. Primarily a self-taught artist, Doli Bio–as she calls herself–enjoyed a fulfilling career in medicine before she began painting in earnest. Now, working in oil, she creates detailed coastal scenes in saturated colors and precise brushstrokes that bring ocean and marsh scenes to life.
A native of New Orleans, LA, Doli lived most of her life in the Midwest relocating eventually to take a position in South Carolina. Today, she is a full-time professional artist. She says, “I pour my heart and a little bit of my soul into my paintings. The beauty of nature is truly humbling. Beautifully dramatic skylines inspire me. They transport me to another place in time. Light against dark, chiaroscuro, carries such an impact. Reflections in wet sand are ethereal. I love to study cloud formations and how the hues and values change moment to moment as the sun rises and sets. I’m truly moved by the beauty and purity of it all.”
