"Summer," an exhibition of abstract paintings by Béatrice Dauge, will be on view throughout August 2006 in Lancaster Lounge, Moulton Union, on the Bowdoin College campus.

A native of Lausanne, Switzerland, Beatrice Dauge Kaufmann now resides and works in Boston, Mass. She has lived and traveled all over the world, including in Europe, North and Central America, Africa, Asia, and the South Pacific. She has lived in Lausanne, London, Paris, and Florence, where she studied art history, drawing, painting, and sculpture.

She has explored color during her travels, and depicts her impressions in abstract paintings and landscapes. She frequently uses square shapes to structure and define the space of her paintings. Her love for the sky and the sea inspires her use of blues and greens. The New England autumn has introduced her to the infinite palette of oranges, pinks, and reds. The color effects of her work evoke the feeling of freedom, density, and space.

Viewing hours of Dauge's exhibition are daily from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. August 1 through August 31. Admission is free.

An opening reception with the artist will be held Tuesday, August 8, from 5 to 7 p.m.

The artist's paintings can be viewed online at
