ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ - Pratima Rao, a national award winning artist from Holmdel, NJ will be exhibiting her works at the Atlantic Highlands Arts Council in Atlantic Highlands, NJ. The exhibit will feature her expressive land and sea scapes in oil, painted en plein air in Southern Italy and New Jersey!
Pratima has been juried several times into well known national plein air events, most recently into ‘Plein Air Easton’, one of the most prestigious plein air events in the country. Pratima seeks to capture the effect of light on the landscape, as a result, her works are light filled, vibrant, impressionistic expressions and allow the viewer to feel like they can walk into her work and experience the moment.
