This exhibit explores rail life and activity through colorful contemporary eyes. A collaboration by Sheila Hrasky and Tandy Miles Riddle, this collection represents a blending of perspectives by two female artists on a historically male realm at the intersection of realism and abstraction. Riddle’s work brings out familiar sights in a soft but confident and challenging expressive light, and Hrasky’s work put a sharper and vivid definition on more conceptual compositions. The pieces run from smaller watercolors to very large oils and offer a second look at the commonplace and familiar sights of rail imagery, both static and dynamic. Both artists have worked and exhibited for decades in several states and claimed a variety of awards.
