Event Details

Bamboozle Tea Lounge is presenting the art of Lynn Rattray in her solo show, “FARM STYLE: TAMPA BAY”.

Lynn is an award winning artist who delights in all things “farm”. Her impressionistic style of colorful oil paintings translates the spirit of cows, pigs, roosters, goats and an assortment of songbirds. Lynn’s body of work in oils and acrylics spans from realism to abstraction. Her current exhibit brings back her beloved gallery of roosters and farm animals, which Lynn is adept at providing human characteristics.  Her animals seem to talk from the canvas, and her roosters have an attitude not to be toyed with!  Many of Lynn’s animal studies come from Ybor City and farms around our Tampa Bay area. Lynn’s art does not disappoint in her vision of capturing and celebrating the beauty of our summer world and providing the viewer by capturing the feel of her farm animal portraits on canvas.   As one can see from Lynn’s work, she relishes the use of random color. Through her painterly strokes life itself vividly takes up residence on her canvases as she creates a feast for the eyes. Her joie de vieattitude and glorious, colorful and sensitive paintings enhance and live in the memory of viewers long after visits to a farm or Ybor have passed.

Lynn is now retired from her role as a school principal and is “fully and happily immersed in the world of art.” She has received numerous awards. One judge in a juried show described Lynn’s work as “the works in this show bring the artist’s own vision and creative expression to life. First Place award by Lynn Rattray, “Diner’s Delight”,  shows how a painting can be as much about surface, textures, light and color as it is about the subject matter.” Lynn is also a past president and current member of the North Tampa Arts League.
