Landscape is my attempt to reconcile diagonals and horizontals, a blue and a brown, air and dirt, self and over yonder.
Lindsay Nolting held her first solo show of paintings at the Hand Work Shop in Richmond in 1963, and her second, of acrylic abstractions, in Paris in 1965. Since the early 1970s, the Piedmont landscape of Virginia has been a principle source of her imagery. Nolting's paintings have been acquired by the American Center, Paris; The Woodward Foundation, Washington, D.C.; Wellesley College; Randolph-Macon College; James Madison University; The University of Virginia; The Medical College of Virginia; The Richmond Police Academy; The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond; and many businesses and private collections. Nolting teaches Art at Fork Union Military Academy Middle School. She has also taught for the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, The Thomas Jefferson Foundation (Monticello), the University of Virginia Enrichment Programs for gifted children, and occasional workshops for seasoned grown-up painters. She offers adults a two day landscape painting workshop at her studio in Fluvanna County and "To Town and Back," an illustrated comic lecture on art criticism.
