I Love Lucy

In her own words, Lucy Graves McVicker says she will often ruin a painting to get the effect she wants. And I have seen her at work. She will cut up paintings, or crumple up Saran Wrap on this, or pull any number of techniques out of her bag of tricks. Whether working in oil, watercolor or mixed media, she is experimenting, always experimenting, and though she is influenced by the natural world around her, she creates her own Lucy world.

She has been to Burma and Frederick Sound, among other places, seeking inspiration.

This Fragile Earth, her exhibit at the Gallery at the Chapin School, continues through Sept. 30. The exhibit can be viewed by appointment during school hours between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.  The Chapin School is located at 4101Princeton Pike, Princeton, NJ.  To make an appointment to visit the gallery, please call 609-924-7206.

  1. Oh my gosh! I just read this for the first time – a half a year after the Chapin show. You are so right. I, alas, will ruin a picture in order to “improve” it. I have a lot of unfinished art lying around, and it is always a challenge to bring it to full fruition! Thank you, Ilene, for your kind and perceptive comments.
    Lucy
