Lilian Garcia-Roig: Autumn Spectacles

Lilian Garcia-Roig: Autumn Spectacles
DALLAS, TEXAS  •  Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden  •  Ongoing

In Autumn Spectacles Cuban American artist Lilian Garcia-Roig shows over 30 paintings.  Many were completed during a fall sabbatical from Florida State University. All were  painted on site in Texas, Florida, New Hampshire, Alabama, and Washington.

Garcia-Roig describes her painting philosophy as follows:

“By definition, plein-air painting means to work on-site, to experience nature first-hand.  For me, this seemingly passe mode of painting is today injected with new relevance and urgency as it helps underscore how removed most of our own experiences and even images of nature have become.  In my works, I want the viewer to discover how the landscape reveals itself in cumulative and unexpected ways.  Ways that will hopefully create a desire to engage more fully, directly and positively in our own environment and to do so before it is too late.”

Lilian Garcia-Roig was born in Havana, Cuba, in 1966 and reared in Houston.  She earned her BFA in 1988 at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, and her MFA from the University of Pennsylvania in 1990.
