PORTLAND, Ore., April 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Froelick Gallery hosts a solo exhibition for painter Holly Osborne. While basing her pictures on impulse, experiences and loved ones, she holds the steadfast intention to bring joy to the viewers. She writes “My artwork always comes directly from my heart- a place of love and compassion.” She commits significant time observing the natural world, making great effort to interpret plants, the points where natural elements meet, and the human touch on the land. These impressionable places are made up of striking red strokes, lush greens, hot vivid pinks, and cool jewel tones, and will charm and transport you into the beautiful mind of Holly Osborne. Her method of abstraction and depiction masterfully features the critical details and omits the irrelevant.
Osborne was born in the Willamette Valley of Oregon and currently resides in Portland. She earned a Master of Art Education in 2018, and a Bachelor of Science in 2014 both at Portland State University. Since graduating, Holly has been featured in multiple solo exhibitions every year, including recent exhibitions at Stephanie Chefas Gallery, Erickson Gallery, and Stumptown in Portland, OR. Osborne appears in Kelly Reichardt’s 2023 film “Showing Up” (distributed by A24). This is Osborne’s second solo exhibition at Froelick Gallery.
Besides weekly public hours, Froelick Gallery will host two public events for this exhibition:
