Nancy Fitz-Rapalje, “A Still Life” opens at Canal Street Art Gallery

BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – Canal Street Art Gallery presents Nancy Fitz-Rapalje, “A Still Life,” opening online May 13 through June 13.

Nancy Fitz-Rapalje, based in Bellows Falls, presents paintings of her familiar floral still-life fruits and vegetables. These new paintings focus on intimate details from the artist’s life, depicting sticky-notes, origami, book stacks, color chips, and postcards showing reproductions of artworks from the likes of Braque and Duchamp. Fitz-Rapalje includes quotes from other artists.

Fitz-Rapalje says, “I think of my small paintings as ‘companions’ rather than an artistic ‘statement’. I hope they may exist with generations of a family living around them. I imagine my tulips or peaches being quiet observers of different lives performed in their space. I consider it theater in two directions – observer to painting and painting to observer.”
