Kolman & Reeb Gallery  is pleased to announce its next Project Space grantee exhibition, "Scents to Scenes," with works painted exclusively for this show. Plein air artist, Cheryl LeClair-Sommer pairs visual and olfactory stimuli to whisk us off to those romantic little hideaways of Minnesota. LeClair-Sommer used fragrance as a catalyst to search for locations that embodied the properties of those scents. This allowed for the characteristics of each perfume to inspire the mood and help predict the color palette of the work. Gallery patrons will have the opportunity to sample the scents associated with each painting to fully appreciate the experience.By pairing essential oils with her expertly painted landscapes, LeClair-Sommer hopes to deeply immerse the viewer into the scene and encompass the entirety of the artist’s experience.
