Reinventing the View, runs Aug. 31-Nov. 5.  The public is invited to meet the artist at the opening reception Friday, Aug. 31, 5-7 p.m.

Wolff has built a devoted following with her colorful watercolors, gouache paintings and children’s book illustrations. The vibrant, celebratory pieces she has selected for Reinventing the View stem from a more personal source.

“I chose the title, Reinventing the View, to mark being back in my home state, but without either parent,” Wolff explained. “After 34 years in California I returned to live close to my mother. The lush bouquets of flowers painted in gouache are an outpouring of emotion following [her] death in May. She loved saturated color and anything purple.”

The other half of the show includes transparent watercolors. “It’s a medium I first learned and practiced with my father, who died 30 years ago,” said Wolff.  “So it appears, without conscious planning, that I’m honoring both parents with work they would have loved if they could be here.”
