Glenna Hartmann (1948–2008)
I am captivated by transitional moments in time, by the moods of the landscape as it passes through sun and shadow, storm and fog. Atmospheric and light effects inspire me to lose myself in painting the land’s joys and mysteries. Sometimes during the process, the painting takes on a life of its own and I am merely a witness to its evolution.
Art can be a powerful voice for self-expression. It can also speak to a timely and compelling reality—that our open spaces are rapidly vanishing in our own lifetimes. The work of the Oak Group gives urgent voice to the land’s need for preservation and stewardship. –Glenna Hartmann
