Join us for the opening of "UISCE", the works of artist Lillie Morris in the Bassett Gallery. Uisce /ish-ka/ is the Irish word for "water", and happens to be the origin of the word "whiskey". Best known for her acrylic, collage and mixed media paintings, Lillie also occasionally works in cold wax and encaustic. She specializes in abstract art, both representational and non-representational. Her paintings, whether collage, acrylic or a mixture of mediums reveal a love of texture, color and experimentation. Richly layered and with her own vocabulary of gestural marks and linear elements, Lillie strives to convey the emotional impact of her source of inspiration...be it the landscape, music, poetry or deep personal experiences. Lillie enjoys creating visually stimulating images that leave the subject open to the viewer’s interpretation.Ms. Morris has travelled to Ireland many times and will display works depicting the people and places of Ireland.
