Revival by Dawnette Renee


Dawnette is an abstract mixed media artist from Northern Virginia. This exhibit is a combination of abstract impressionism and expressionism, and the subject matter includes faces, cityscapes and rural landscapes. Dawnette draws inspiration from nature, weathered barns, rusty train tracks, and old buildings.


This exhibit will be in the Jane Sandelin Gallery.
