Glacial Conclusions - New Paintings by Penny Otwell

Now is the time to seek out old friends — and in Penny Otwell’s case, the oldest of friends. Literally. Throughout her decades spent wandering and painting Yosemite National Park, Ms. Otwell has come to include the eternal rocks, trees and waterfalls as among her dearest companions, and those she knows and understands intimately. They in return, have given her a lifetime of inspiration and influence, which now more than ever, we look to embrace without debate or critique. A result of that grounded relationship in these times of consolation is ‘Glacial Conclusions – New Paintings by Penny Otwell.’

Penny has reminisced how “I am grateful for the countless mountain experiences I’ve enjoyed. Living in Yosemite Valley for many years has brought me rewarding friendships still vital today. I paint what I feel about this place, not just what I see [and] the best part of my life is making art that lets me share my joy of this remarkable place with others.

‘Glacial Conclusions’ will open at The Ansel Adams Gallery on October 11th and run through November 21st, 2020. While we are unable to host a reception due to current social requirements, we do hope you come to the gallery to view a culmination in a lifetime of friendship and art in Yosemite.
