Viewpoints Gallery

Julia Munger Seelos is Viewpoints Gallery’s featured artist in March. Her exhibition “Landforms” runs through March 31.

A reception for the artist is scheduled 5-8 p.m. Friday at the gallery.

  Seelos’ exhibition is a survey of oil paintings, primarily painted en plein air at locations throughout the West. The display features images of striking landscapes of red sandstone in the parks of Utah and Arizona. Her desert paintings boast warm colors and contrast with her cool paintings of the California coast, with crashing waves on stark cliffs above the ocean.

“I hope to bring the beauty of the outdoors home through my work, creating a safe place to refuel the spirit,” Seelos said.

Viewpoints Gallery is located at 315 State St. Hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays.
