Featured Artwork: "The Getaway" by Carol O'Malia
The Getaway, as with many of Carol O’Malia’s paintings, captures a moment of summer. The viewer is in the water quietly approaching the float where the unnamed swimmer has just come to rest. The water is cool and calm.
Be it a folding chair, a beach ball floating on the lake, or a young man resting on a float, viewers encountering Carol O’Malia’s paintings can almost hear the lapping of the water, the sounds of children playing in the distance, and low hum of motorboats.
O’Malia depicts objects and places that we have seen and experienced. The oil paintings radiate serenity and timelessness, regardless of the season they portray.
