A Walk Through the American Landscape

A continuous line of small, jewel-like landscape paintings adorn the walls of The Art League Gallery’s solo artist room this month. Landscape artist Pattee Hipschen’s exhibit “Rural Connections,” open through July 2, provides the viewer with a walk through the American landscape.

These 79 small, 5” x7” paintings compose a visual record of Hipschen’s travels across the country. Despite the large number of works, each piece is unique and offers a window into a completely different scene.

Hipschen draws inspiration from a variety of iconic American locales – from the farmlands and country roads of Virginia to the rural outposts of the Midwest. She adeptly captures the seasons, skies, and terrain unique to each region, and successfully creates a sense of nostalgia.

Hipschen, a seasoned landscape painter with over thirty years’ experience, received her AA in Studio Fine Arts from NVCC and BFA in Art History from George Mason University. In addition to painting, Hipschen is a monotype printmaker and teaches monotype workshops nationwide. A long-time Art League member, Hipschen exhibits regularly both regionally and in galleries in the Midwest.
