Absorbing and beautiful best describes the recent artistry of Georgette Sinclair. “In every piece of art that I created I put a piece of my soul,” she says, and it shows.

In her own words…
During the darkness and harshness of pandemic isolation I reflected what is the most important part in our own lives, what brings us joy and inspiration …. …That was the moment when the seeds of Introspective Retrospection came alive…Georgette Sinclair
Absorbing and beautiful. Words sometimes fail.
Sinclair’s painting have always been highlights of RIVAA group shows as well as her own solos. And just as her subjects roam from Roosevelt Island to Italy and France, her work has blessed galleries in many locations.
Romania, where Sinclair grew up, still inspires her as do the fields of Connecticut and Tuscany.
Introspective Retrospection, Absorbing and Beautiful…
Saturday, Georgette Sinclair’s exhibit of paintings, Introspective Retrospection, opens at Gallery RIVAA, 527 Main Street on Roosevelt Island. Meet the artist at a free opening reception from 6:00 to 9:00.
More than beautiful landscapes…
Sometimes, the greatest thrill affecting this artist is a child appreciating a wade in the water.
Or one of those landscapes we all see, but not like an artist, managing our urban lives.
Conclusion, Absorbing and Beautiful
“I dedicated part of my expressive inspiration to my family, my precious granddaughters, the Sunshine and Moonlight of my life… Looking back, my paintings remind me of beautiful places and joyful moments that I was fortunate to experience….
“Life if full of surprises, and I try to keep an open mind and soul also to the future….”Georgette Sinclair
The artist looks forward to sharing her inspired works with you, beginning Saturday.
The opening reception welcomes everyone, but the gallery strictly honors state and Roosevelt Island coronavirus guidelines, including masks and social distancing.
