“Outlooks in Oil, Work by Upper Valley Painters”
July 08 - September 17
Oil is an versatile and powerful medium for developing ideas with paint. Substrate (hard panel, canvas, linen) makes a difference, as do other attributes: vagaries of the way the pigments interact with each other in the oil medium, subject matter, use of the brush, feelings for the colors, interest, energy and outlook of the painter. The goal of this show is to offer a variety of voices, to build an interesting selection of talented and fascinating approaches to this medium. We have ten painters participating (Jane Ashley, Jennifer Brown, Greg Gorman, Clark Graff, Matthew Greenway, Harrison Halaska, Nils Johnson, Meg McLean, Barbara Newton, Jonathan Rose), and the show offers a wonderful diversity of approaches in oil paint.
Meet the Artist Party at the gallery, August 19, 5 - 7 pm.
