Book Launch Party: Tula Telfair: Invented Landscapes

December 13, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Lyme resident Tula Telfair will offer an artist talk on the occasion of the release of a major book on her. Her seemingly realistic landscape paintings (exhibited at the Museum in 2010) are at once awe-inspiring and extremely personal. Although vividly detailed, the scenes she depicts are not found in nature; they are conjured from memory and imagination.

The talk will be preceded by a light reception at 6:30pm.

Tula’s book is available for purchase in The Shop.

Launch party and talk are free

Book: $54 Members, $60 Non Members

Tula Telfair: Invented Landscapes by Tula Telfair
Lyme resident Tula Telfair offers an artist talk on the occasion of the release of a major book on her art by Abrams. Her seemingly realistic landscape paintings (exhibited at the Museum in 2010) are at once awe-inspiring and extremely personal. Although vividly detailed, the scenes she depicts are not found in nature; they are conjured from memory and imagination. Informed by her experiences growing up on four continents, Telfair produces large-scale paintings with a breathtaking mastery of color and light. The talk will be preceded by a light reception at 6:30pm. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing.

Telfair’s hyper-realistic landscape paintings are at once awe-inspiring and extremely personal. Although vividly detailed, the scenes she depicts are not found in nature; they are conjured from memory and imagination. Informed by her experiences growing up on four continents, Telfair produces fantastical visions with delicate brushstrokes and a breathtaking mastery of color and light. Suggestive of waterfalls in Africa, deserts of the American Southwest, and ice floes in Antarctica, Telfair’s art draws attention to the power and fragility of nature. Essays by Henry Adams and Michael S. Roth explore the technical and aesthetic aspects of Telfair’s work, her personal history, and the interplay between realism and invention.
