In her El Cerrito Library art show, “Looking Back at Peripatetic Art,” painter June Hunt asks viewers to help her consider her wandering creative process. The show runs from Feb. 28 to May 1 during regular library hours.
“I was a ceramicist when my children were young, before I re-entered the workforce as the financial officer at Graduate Theological Union,” June says. “Since retirement, my new gift of time has awakened the dormant artistic muse and I found a paint brush in my hand for the first time.”
In this exhibit, she is re-examining these paintings, gazing at them with the viewers.
“I have not painted enough in recent years to really know what my style has become. My art journey has been peripatetic, a wandering process” she says. “Give me your thoughts as you look at these paintings…what do you see, what do you like?”
