Ronna Harris: "The Water Will Rise"

Professor Ronna Harris’ painting, “The Water Will Rise” is included in the 2015 Louisiana Contemporary exhibition at the Ogden Museum of Art. The exhibition opened August 1, White Linen Night, and will be on view until September 20, 2015.

Her work is also featured in a special issue of Art & Beyond,  Nude and Figurative Art: “The Body Beautiful” which may be viewed online.

This summer Prof. Harris also exhibited in “Strange Paradise,”  a national juried exhibition at the First Street Gallery in New York.

Prof. Harris states that her work is rooted in the American Realist tradition. "However, my paintings communicate a state of controlled chaos as I combine two divergent forces and approaches into my art: realism and abstract expression. By a proficient handling of light, a mastery of images, and a skillful mark-making method, my paintings confer an illusion of reality to something that's not real."
