Three Mooresville Arts painters are exhibiting at the Mooresville Depot Visual Arts Center in June.

Paintings by Liz Rosier, Gail Black and Linda Fossum are featured in each of the three main galleries until June 24.

An opening reception for the artists will be 6-8 p.m. June 10 at the Mooresville Arts Depot. The public is invited.

Artist Liz Rosier is committed to dreaming up compositions to welcome the viewer into her paintings, allowing them to stroll around awhile and be entertained with the subject matter.

After receiving a few painting lessons at a young age, Rosier began exploring various mediums and the rest is history. Hooked on painting and endeavoring in various methodologies, she is now primarily enamored with watercolors. Rosier has most recently studied with acclaimed watercolorist Linda Baker.

Rosier’s work has been shown in Mooresville in numerous shows, including a juried show and has a second-place ribbon. She has completed commissioned paintings for clients in Cleveland, Ohio; Atlanta; Ga.; Chicago, Ill.; and Johnson City, Tenn.

Gail Black is a Charlotte artist who works in oil, water media and mixed media. She has a studio and gallery space at Charlotte Art League and also shows her works at area art shows including Mint Hill Arts and Matthews Artists Guild. Her work has also been shown at Andre Christine Gallery in Mooresville, and Ciel Gallery and Charlotte Fine Art Gallery in Charlotte.

Recent awards include Best of Show at Mooresville Arts Spring Art Fest 2015, honorable mention at Charlotte Fine Art Gallery 2015 Juried Show and the Signature Member Award at the annual exhibition of the Watercolor Society of North Carolina.

After several years working in IT departments for major U.S. corporations, Linda Fossum discovered that painting for a few minutes every evening reduced her stress significantly. By accessing the creative side of my brain, the more technical work became easier and even more fun. “How Does Your Garden Grow” explores her interpretation of the variety and beauty of nature that captured her interest.
