Hermine Philippe - Exhibit Opening

Hermine Philippe - Exhibit Opening

Friday, June 14 - 6:30pm at Alliance Française location

Exhibit and wine & cheese reception - free entrance for members and general public

As a child growing up in Antwerp, Belgium, Hermine Philippe-Van Mele was surrounded by art in the form of Gothic cathedrals, Renaissance mansions and many art museums. When she came to the United States in 1966, she started taking watercolor classes in South Bend, Indiana. Later on, Hermine studied watercolors, drawing and art history at the University of Western Connecticut in Danbury, CT. While living in Atlanta, GA, She took classes from Greta Schelke, a well-known watercolorist from the Netherlands, and participated in exhibitions of the Roswell Fine Arts Alliance. After moving to Scottsdale, she took oil painting classes with Hedi Moran, Susan Diehl and Joshua Fallik at the Scottsdale Art School. Hermine exhibited at the Mayo Clinic and the ASU Gammage auditorium several years ago.

She has a preference for the style of the Old Masters of the 17th century, as well as the Impressionistic style of painting. Exploring the interplay of colors, light and shadow fascinates her. Still lives and landscapes have therefore been her mains subject matter. She enjoys painting because every new painting presents a new challenge and a new opportunity to achieve something beautiful. As the French painter Edgar Degas said, "Art is not a matter of what you can see, but what you can make other people see.
