When Hadley Rampton travels she is drawn, she says, “to the old places. There is history there. When I travel that is what really intrigues me, that is what really excites me… and I also really love history. I want to get to what the truth of these places is.”
These travels come back with Rampton as series of watercolors, scenes of people and places, from broad city squares to intimate town corners. Rampton is probably better known, however, for her oil paintings, large-scale works that reflect her love of the outdoors and share with the watercolors a strong architectural underpinning and a masterful use of color. Both are on exhibit this month at Salt Lake City’s Phillips Gallery.
