"2D, 3D, and What's In Between"
by Linda Warshaw

Artist Linda Warshaw sustains her creativity by remaining open to inspiration in unlikely places and juxtapositions,. Since its founding 25 years ago, she has been an active member of Art First Gallery. Her local following has come to expect, and continue to be delighted by, the unexpected in her work.

Her current show results from reading a moving memoir, as well as considering how the larger, usually discarded, wood pieces in shavings for horses might be used in her work. The book, When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi, led to a desire to paint airborne birds. The reuse of earthy materials became more intriguing when contrasted with glitter. In her words, she is always willing to “play with shapes, both 2D and 3D; play with realism or abstraction, and play with color”.

As a child, Warshaw was discouraged from spending time on art. As a result, she studied economics and sociology at Rutgers University. Soon after graduation, she moved to the Fredericksburg area and taught fourth graders. A second degree in art from Mary Washington enabled her to become a recognized, practicing artist in 1984, and a middle school art teacher in Stafford. Her lifelong interest in the arts extended to teaching drama and to working on local theatre productions and costuming.

Warshaw’s work can also be found at The Loft in Culpeper and Changing Reins in Ashland. She is featured by the Virginia Equine Artist Association and has also written and illustrated a humorous horse driving manual for the James River Driving Association
