Ita Bullard creates original art with an eclectic mix of techniques and absolutely no pretension. Her muses have come from deep within her spirit to find fulfillment through many years of dedication to authenticity and honesty of expression. In reference to her work, Bullard stated, “I consider my art a gift to myself. I am humbled by the process and am forever seeking to advance my ability to evoke emotion through the painting.”
Beyond her artistic endeavors, Bullard participates in various community projects, such as hosting Chamber of Commerce meetings and benefits for Mountain Lake PBS and the Strand Center for the Arts. She has donated numerous paintings for fund raising auctions for various local and national/international charities.
“After I had the chance to stop by Ita’s studio and see her work in person, I knew that we had to feature it in our gallery,” stated Museum Coordinator, David Monette. “She travels from abstraction to a more realistic style with a fluidity and grace that is truly unique. We are, without a doubt, extremely fortunate to have an artist of her caliber exhibiting here.”
The exhibit of Bullard’s artwork will be on view in The Strand Center Main Gallery at 23 Brinkerhoff Street in Plattsburgh from September 2-30, 2016. The opening reception will take place September 2, from 5:30 to 7:30 PM and is free and open to the public.
