George Strasburger – Art Exhibit Oro Valley Library

Tucson artist George Strasburger’s portraits and landscapes are on display in the gallery of the Oro Valley Library. “Rosa,” the image of a confident woman, received the 1st Place award in the 2014 Members’ Juried Exhibit of PAOA (Portrait Artists of Arizona). George’s palette uses quiet colors that reflect tranquil moods. Even the crouching, cat-like male figure with bleeding wounds depicts concentration before action. A favorite of mine, George’s low-light landscape of railroad tracks and adjacent buildings zeros in on isolation and loneliness. The paintings will be exhibited until the end of November. (As of today, the library has not posted the exhibit on its web site.)
