The Historic Odessa Foundation is pleased to present a colorful late spring and early summer art exhibition titled Potpourri of the Palette:  Watercolor Paintings by Linda Hall. 

The art exhibit will feature some of the award winning artist’s vivid flower still life watercolor paintings and light filled landscapes.  Hall has participated in numerous juried art shows and has received many awards for her imaginative artwork.  Many of Linda Hall’s art subjects come from her bayside village of Betterton, Maryland, similar in size to and just thirty miles west of historic Odessa.  Here the artist has been inspired by the wonderful light and shadow on the local nature, fields, and water that comprise most of her compositions.  Reconnect with your local historic museum to observe the wonderful collection of paintings by this talented neighboring artist.
