The works in the show demonstrate the unique qualities of cool indoor north light.

Quote from Cynthia “ Since north light comes from a North-facing window, it is the coolest, most consistent, natural but indirect light from the sun. In looking and painting, I am invited to see color value and shadow tone vary subtly as mysteries of light.”
