Carol Ordogne has lived in many beautiful places including California and Hawaii. But the first time she visited the Southwest, the beauty of the landscape with its ever-changing light and colors captured her heart forever. The wildlife was the added bonus and has been the inspiration for much of her work in oil painting over the years.
“The theme of this painting series is to explore the relationship between colors and the emotions they evoke. The goal of many painters is to accurately depict realistic color. I use color to convey a message that evokes emotions greater than a realistic portrayal. For this series I am allowing myself the freedom to express myself through color.”
Ordogne, who earned a BFA from the University of Hawaii and a Masters in Landscape Architecture from LSU, is the featured artist at Wild Hearts Gallery with her exhibition running from Jan. 2 through Feb. 2. The public is invited to the opening reception on Sunday, Jan.12 from 1-4:00 pm. Light refreshments will be served. Wild Hearts Gallery is located in Placitas, at the Homestead Village, 221-B State Highway 165, 2 ½ miles from I-25.
Wild Hearts Gallery is an artists' collective, supported by 14 longtime local artists. Gallery hours are: Tuesday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
