September 2017
"Memorable Moments"
by Ina Moss

 



Sharing her artist’s view of the world has always been a compulsion for Ina Moss. Throughout September, a broad selection of her realist paintings will be featured at Art First Gallery in downtown Fredericksburg. Clearly, the mood of a landscape, the essence of a still life, or the interactions of people or animals in Nature motivate her to capture a unique moment in oils, acrylics or watercolor.

Largely self-taught, Moss acknowledges her lifelong admiration for DaVinci and Turner, as reflected in her ability to draw and in her use of subtle color. As a young mother, she redeemed books of S & H Green Stamps for art supplies. Determined to hone her skills and experiment with new media, she attended classes with such well known Fredericksburg instructors as Johnny P. Johnson, Steve Griffin and Bill Harris. When her first homework assignment sold before it was graded, she knew she was on the right track.

While raising a family and creating, Moss also spent 35 years as a nurse and worked locally at Mary Washington Hospital and Pratt Clinic. She has shared her artistic talents in local school systems and rehabilitation facilities. Native to Virginia, her work has shown in the counties of Prince William; Spotsylvania; King George; Roanoke; Bath, and Highland, as well as in Fredericksburg and Phoenix, Arizona.

Moss’s versatility extends to abstraction and mixed media. Currently, she teaches abstract painting in her home studio. For more of her work, see www.inamossfineart.com. For additional details about this show call 540-371-7107.
