Longtime local artist Jeanette Jarville is exhibiting a series of made-in-Richmond paintings at Richmond City Hall.

Reflections of Richmond runs until Sept. 30 in the galleria. Works in the exhibition capture the colours and ambience of natural areas in Richmond, and are painted in a contemporary, stylized way.

Using various shades of blue, grey, brown and green, Jarville helps create the mood experienced in these local places, some captured with orange and violet hues of sunsets.

Her work is framed in heritage window frames, referencing the history of these areas and putting the viewer in the position of looking out toward them.

Jarville is also preparing for another solo show—at Gateway Theatre's mezzanine gallery this fall—an exhibition that will showcase new abstract figurative work.

Reflections of Richmond is free to view inside city hall weekdays from 8:15 a.m. to 5 p.m.
