“Mindscapes,” an exhibit of art by Katerina Hrdlicka of Morristown, is on display through April 21 at River Arts, 74 Pleasant St., Morrisville, 9 to 4.
Vermont landscapes burst with color and voluptuous shapes as Hrdlicka ponders: What happens when the mind’s eye brings joy to the painter’s brush? Hrdlicka set out to be a scientist, to find order in the world. She took a similar approach to art, but realized that, for her, it was empty. Searching for herself, deconstructing the realism, she learned to let go, to let the shapes reveal themselves.
