Neltje: Dialogue of My Mind & Tell Me, Why Flowers?

March 14, 2020 - July 12, 2020
Neltje's paintings are intense, complex, and larger than life. "Dialogue of My Mind" is Neltje's first figurative series, which she painted following the 2016 elections. Inspired by the end-of-season explosion of color in her late-summer gardens, "Tell Me, Why Flowers?" evokes the spectacular, but fleeting, joys of life.
