ARTIST TALK AND GALLERY WALKTHROUGH | Riccarda de Eccher: Montagna
Saturday, August 26, 2:00pm | Halsey Institute Galleries

Join us on Saturday, August 26 at 2pm for an artist talk and gallery walkthrough with Riccarda de Eccher for her exhibition at the Halsey Institute Montagna.

Riccarda de Eccher’s sublime watercolors of mountain peaks offers a similar exploration of familiar images. In this case, her works evoke picturesque representations of snow-capped mountains from the Italian Alps. de Eccher’s watercolors offer a subversion of our current age in which the internet images to be vastly and readily shared, especially those that are hi-resolution and digitally retouched. On view concurrently with Marc Trujillo: American Purgatory, her works correlate with Trujillo’s paintings: though titled, her pictures are cropped so that they convey anonymous mountains that could exist on almost any continent. As an Italian native and frequent mountain-climber, de Eccher uses her works to explore humanity’s relationship with mountains throughout history.
