“Amazing Grace” by Luba Robinson.
TREASURE ISLAND – The Treasure Island Art Guild has opened its fall season show at the Treasure Island Community Center with award-winning artists, Linda Critser, Grace Murdock, Luba Robinson, Grace Roth, and Rosemary Utzinger. The exhibit will continue through Oct. 31.

“From Margaret’s Garden,” by Critzer, a watercolor artist and Army veteran, reflects layers of sheer pastel color to complement the fragile petals of an Iris. “Adobe” draws the viewer into a glowing landscape. “Toucan,” perched on a limb in a tropical forest, showcases the bird’s spectacular beak. Her versatility in subject matter invites us into a “Shake Shop at Madeira Beach.”

Murdock, another watercolor artist, gives expression to her passion for feathered friends. A subtle background contrasts the stoic pose of a “Yellow Crowned Night Heron.” Lost edges capture the softness of the downy “Pair of Owls” and the painterly “Snowy Egret and Nest.” Her work titled “Little Green Heron” uses an array of vivid colors.

Robinson, an oil painter and longtime Florida resident, gives us treasures of the sea in “Beached” and “Shellscape,” bathed in stunning hues. Poetic inspiration gives a lyrical response to “Nautilus.” “Amazing Grace” blends dramatic value contrasts in the flight of a soaring egret.

Roth, a Plein air watercolorist, combines color with a strong sense of narrative in a repertoire of Florida scenes. Layered glazes give luminosity to “Boat in Tierra Verde” and “Cottage at Bradenton Beach.” She delivers a wistful “Lowe House at Heritage Village” and a sparkling “Fruit Stand in Dunnellon” which sings a song of epicurean delight.

Oil paintings by Utzinger speak to “an effort to hold onto the moments that move me emotionally,” as evidenced in “Through the Stone Arch,” the rolling hillsides in “Farm in Provence,” and “Patio at My Brothers’ Place.” A soft touch describes a pastel portrait “Grandma in Pink.” Her art also reflects a combination of good composition, harmonious color, contrast, and controlled values, all the technical qualities of fine art.

The Community Center is located at Park Street and 106th Avenue. Call the Recreation Center at 547-4575 for more information.
