Deborah Rollo’s Artwork on Display at Waukesha Civic Theatre

April 15, 2014 to May 19, 2014

The woodlands, streams and fields encircling Deborah's Waukesha home of nearly 50 years are a constant inspiration for paintings, not just for their beauty, but because a continual threat of destruction makes this land even more precious.  The tension negates doing "just pretty scenery"; these landscapes search for the  sacred and unseen in Nature, a complicated question of reverence and beauty.  Travels to "big sky" places, especially where water land and sky meet, like the western coast of Ireland, the Scottish highlands, and the southern tip of Africa, have been influential, as have time at Acoma and Navajo lands.

Painting for over thirty years, art education included studies at the University of Wisconsin-Waukesha, Milwaukee Museum of Art, Palette & Chisel Academy (Chicago), SAS (Scottsdale, Arizona), and the Peninsula School of Art, focusing on classical figurative and color theory studies.

A member of the Wisconsin Plein Air Painting Association, she has participated in many plein air events including Cedarburg, Waukesha, Downtown Milwaukee, Oconomowoc, Wauwatosa, and the Third Ward. 

Exhibitions include Marshfield Clinic, University of Wisconsin-Waukesha, Gallery 613, Waukesha Civic Theatre, and The Gruenzel Gallery (Fish Creek).
