Paintings by Pauline Rakis
From May 5-21, Links Bridge Vineyards will host “Nature’s Grace,” an exhibit of original paintings by Pauline Rakis.
“Nature’s Grace” celebrates the transition from Winter to Spring. Any change of seasons is a magical time, but this one is exceptional because the visual impact of the change is so compelling. It begins at a slow and steady pace, then explodes as bursts of color, new textures, light, and abundance replace the drab winter. That is what this exhibit is all about!
The artist in Rakis lay dormant for many years while she raised a family, then took on a career in banking. Before leaving her position as vice president at PNC, she had survived eight mergers and acquisitions! In preparation for retirement, she awoke her sleeping talents by taking art classes and workshops. She immersed herself in weekend sketching classes, acrylic painting workshops, and finally programs and classes in France, Greece, and Canada. Rakis is now a full-time artist, currently focusing on landscape and still life.
“Creating art has taught me to challenge myself to go beyond what is comfortable and give
myself the freedom of discovery”-Pauline Rakis
