The exhibit is open for viewing Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. The gallery is located on the upper level of Menard Hall on the LLCC-Springfield campus, 5250 Shepherd Road. A reception with the artist will be held Tuesday, Aug. 22 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the gallery.
Fuller, of Champaign, Ill., paints with acrylic on canvas, but more recently has been focusing on the medium of colored pencil. "I have discovered that I really like this medium," explains Fuller. "It is easy to layer colors, has the ability to provide great details and is very portable."
The focus of her drawings are the landscapes that she encounters during her hikes and exploration of the outdoors. In particular, she has taken an interest in water and how it changes the materials that lie beneath its surface.
"I love to travel and explore the natural landscape, and I love to paint and draw my journeys," says Fuller. "I am simply amazed at all of the variety — the different natural colors of the landscape and the power of water."
