Crimson & Silver By Sharon Hathaway
This October, the Geary Gallery of Darien is proud to present "Meditations on Nature," featuring the stress-relieving nature acrylics of the Bay Shore area, New Jersey painter, Sharon Hathaway. Her exhibit runs October 3 - 31 at the Geary Gallery located at 576 Boston Post Road in Darien.
"When you look at my work, I want you to feel the sand under your feet, smell the vegetation or the ocean air, and hear the birds, the waves, or the crunch of leaves," says nature painter, Sharon Hathaway. "I want you to give a big sigh of relief as tension and stress leave you. I want you to feel as if you were taking a walk through a lovely landscape renewing your soul." 
Hathaway's paintings celebrate unique, tranquil landscapes that invite the viewer into the painting. She has been drawing since she was old enough to hold a pencil, and painting since she was 13. She earned a BA in Studio Art and a Minor in Education in 1982 from the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, Minnesota.
A Midwest native, she has lived in the Bay Shore, New Jersey area with her husband and two children since the Spring of 2000, teaching art to children and adults, as well as exhibiting her art at galleries in the area. Hathaway switched from oil painting to acrylic as a medium after becoming a mother.
"Necessity is the mother of invention and becoming a mother is what necessitated my change from oils to acrylics. My studio is a small corner of my living room in my small house, and since children and oils don't mix, I developed a style of painting in acrylic that allows me to achieve the quality I want in my work. I'm continually amazed at its versatility, and I've had a great deal of success with acrylics. Even though I may go back to oils again for the occasional painting, I'm very happy painting in acrylics."

Sharon Hathaway is a non-artist member of the Salmagundi Club in New York. She also has earned multiple awards and has presented her work at several juried exhibits, including:
