The display of the work complimented the considerable skills employed in each piece as several pairings demonstrated Ms. Swersie's ability to present images in a deceptively simplistic manner along with those whose intricacies inherent in the subjects are quite prominent. This not only enhances the appreciation of the work and the artist who created it but of the art of painting in general. You'll find more photographs taken during the Artists' Reception in The Colors and Conversations Enliven The Dutot Gallery at www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10154022835653761.1073741867.91146283760&type=3.
