Exhibition Opening & Artist Talk

Captured by Detail: Camille Engel Exhibition Opens & Artist Talk

Feb 22 • 6pm • Artist Talk

Feb 22 - May 20

Camille Engel (1955) sees the splendor of everyday objects. She is able to capture in life captivated by detail, these intricate works focusing attention upon the rich colors and textures found in some of the most unheralded subjects while reflecting the artist’s victory over personal hardships.

She is an acute observer of the beauty that most of us overlook, Engel is amazed and fascinated with color and texture, seeking to capture the richness of life. These oil paintings invite us to momentarily step into her world of observation and share in her joy of the transcendent beauty all around us.

What inspires Engel the most is not a singular cultural message, nor even the master painters she admires, but rather her core beliefs. “For me,” Engel explains, “every morning is a fresh opportunity to find extraordinary joy in the most ordinary things. My art overflows out of that joy.”

This exhibition showcases a new body work done in her realism style and celebrates the artist’s Tennessee home and showcases unique depictions of the Tennessee State Symbols.
