Victoria Romanoff (sculpture)
& Gillian Pederson-Krag (painting)
Gillian Pederson-Krag and Victoria Romanoff both earned BFA's from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1962 . It was a period at RISD where there was a huge emphasis on the importance of drawing and they found that the education they received was challenging and inspiring. They took a further step and obtained Masters of Fine Arts degrees from Cornell University in the mid-1960's.
This joint exhibition includes both earlier and more recent work selected to show evolvement as well as continuity. Even though their work is quite different in their chosen materials and techniques , their former education and training provided a link that has remained visually cohesive. Gillian's masterful oil or acrylic still-life paintings and Victoria's engaging wood sculptures display disciplined imagination.
Gillian has had a long career in teaching painting and drawing and Victoria has spent a lifetime saving and restoring historic archtecture. Both have stayed very active, stayed friends and stayed in Upstate New York when not running off to far away islands, countries or continents.
