Landscape Around Us | January 22 – February 20, 2022

On display in the Park View Gallery, artists An Xiao and Feng Zhou celebrate the landscape of Frederick County, Maryland. With the Catoctin Mountains to the east, South Mountain on the west, the Pennsylvania border to the north and the Potomac River and Virginia to the south, the Middletown Valley serves as the setting for the paintings in this exhibition. In this exhibition of oil paintings, An and Feng capture the serene light, colors and landscape of the beautiful farmland and the historic township. 

 

Artist Bios


An Xiao has loved visual art since a young age. She works as a Financial Analyst in a government agency and she is an active oil painter and amateur photographer. She began learning to paint after moving to Maryland, and her passion for art has been developing since. She has won multiple awards from the Rockville Art League. She has had a solo exhibition at the Rockville public library and recently participated in a group show, The Spirit of the Landscape, in the Yellow Barn Gallery. Having studied under various art teachers, she recently took Walter Bartman's “Sunset Oil Painting” class at the Yellow Barn. She has since made great progress in oil painting, as well as learned about art theory, history, world class artists and their styles. An would like to dedicate her success to Bartman’s teaching.


Feng Zhou was born in China and first came to America for graduate education in the 80s and has been working here ever since. From a young age, she has loved painting and has continued painting into adulthood, but gradually, her work in statistics and parenting became her focus. Now, in her 60s, Zhou is picking up the brush again seriously. Her interest in art is broad: Chinese brush painting, calligraphy, and watercolor. More recently, she started painting still life and en plein air in oil. Last year, she took oil painting classes at the Yellow Barn with Walter Bartman, in which every Sunday afternoon, she painted on location the beautiful Maryland countryside bathed in golden, afternoon sunlight. Nature is her inspiration and where she draws energy. She also recently took part in a seven person show of The Spirit of the Landscape at Yellow Barn Gallery.
