1 76 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, December 3 - December 9, 1999 Rehoboth Hometown Christmas The paintings of Francisca Verdoner Kan will be on display at the Peninsula Gallery in Lewes with a reception set for Sunday, Dec. 5. Above is an example of Kan's work, an oil ti- tled "Afternoon Ride." 'Familiar Places' opens at Pemnsula Gallery Dec. 5 For those who have ever looked at a painting, photograph or pic- ture in a book or magazine and said to themselves, "I think I've been there, but I can't quite place the scene," then the paintings of Francisca Verdoner Kan will cer- tainly ring a bell. Titled Familiar Places, Kan's colorful oil paint- ings, which show old store fronts, abandoned mills, deteriorating rail yards, gas stations and farm buildings, bring to the viewer the colors and shapes of a rapidly changing environment. She is fas- cinated by geometric shapes and the way they fit together, like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle in the manmade landscape of the urban and ex-urban scene. Kan's style is representational and she paints with bold, vigorous strokes, creat- ing strong solid shapes that are rich in color, lighting and most of all, character. Born in the Netherlands, Kan came to the United States in 1946 as a war refugee. She arrived in Maryland, where she now lives with her husband, via New York and Washington, D.C., where she earned her master of fine arts de- gree in painting from American University. She has taught at the Maryland College of Art and De- sign, the Barrie School and presently at Cecil Community College. She exhibits extensively in Maryland and Virginia and in New York. The artist, who works on location, said, "I enjoy the challenge of working outdoors, catching the light and finding the essentials, not to mention avoid- ing poison ivy and insects, and surviving the heat or cold, the wind and the advice of passers- by:' Familiar Places will run throughout the month of Decem- ber at the Peninsula Gallery in Lewes. A reception to meet the artist will be held from 3 to 5 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 5. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mon- day through Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m, Sunday.
