Greenwich artist Maria Friscia will open her new exhibit, Spotlight on Nature, a collection of landscape paintings, at Les Beaux Arts Gallery, on Sunday, Feb. 16.

The exhibit will run through Thursday, March 20.

According to the gallery, Ms. Friscia’s artwork invites reflection, as light glances off the surface of her trees and rocks, hills and fields, to places where you might get lost in a daydream. Her style is realistic but her interest and strategy veer toward abstraction. Whether the spaces are wide-open or confined, she depicts them as flattened areas and sometimes the whole is reduced to pattern. Her colors are strong and stark and well suited for the sharp angles in her lines.

In a press release about the exhibit, Ms. Friscia said she is deeply enchanted and touched by nature, explaining that “Nature frees me from all onuses of life. My art is an expression of my concept of nature.”

Though nature landscapes have been her primary interest, she has explored different subjects and multi-media including experimenting with digital art.

Les Beaux Arts Gallery is located in the Round Hill Community Church at 395 Round Hill Road. The gallery hours are Sunday, 11 a.m. to noon and Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.. The gallery is closed Saturday. The gallery will also be closed on Monday, Feb. 17, for Presidents’ Day.
