The Church is thrilled to announce artist and co-founder April Gornik, who will speak on her painting, Storm Suspended by Light, currently featured in our Empire of Water exhibition. The landscape shows the sun setting over the water as storm clouds roll in. The piece contradicts the stereotypical depiction of water as blue and instead highlights water as a reflective medium — mirroring the orange sky with an orange sea. The painting is scaled at 78 x 108 inches allowing the viewer to be immersed in the moment, sunsets are fleeting, however through her painterly expertise Gornik captures the overwhelming serenity that an East End sunset encompasses.
