The exhibition's title, "Nine Lives" refers to the artwork as a reflection of the lives of nine mature and accomplished artists who have persevered through severe trials and continued to make art over their long careers. A diverse collection of recent work by the gallery's stable of artists, from landscapes to portraiture, is featured in this group show. The public is invited to an opening reception on Saturday, October 8th at 5:30 pm.
Margot Trout, b. 1937, will be showing two large landscapes showcasing the pastoral beauty of the Berkshires and the Hudson Valley in her signature style of plein air realism.
Don Wynn, b. 1942, follows up on his recent solo show at the gallery with three pieces: "Cindy Chapman" a masterful pencil drawing from the early 1980's, "Prom Night" a richly textured acrylic painting from Wynn's Teen Years series from 1998, and from 2016, "Sarah Carpenter," his latest portrait in acrylic on paper.
H.M. Saffer, b. 1942, offers two new oil on panel pieces in his neo-pointillist style which vibrate with color and light. "Tom's Place" and "Provence Poppies" are both dazzling examples of Saffer's singular vision.
Ron Goldfinger, b. 1946, will exhibit several new plein air and still life oils in his timeless style of classical realism executed with palette knife and bravado brushwork.
Joel Mark, b. 1948, adds to his selection of museum quality furniture with an elegant new deco-influenced glass-top round coffee table in curly maple with ebony accents.
New from Leon A. Comstock Jr. b. 1951, is "Lazy River" an incredibly detailed piece of imaginary realism in graphite on board.
Jeffrey Neumann, b. 1953, is featuring his latest oil on linen "White Hut," an iconic West Springfield, MA Mom & Pop burger joint which has beaten the odds and survived since 1939.
Well known for his popular Warren Street, Hudson series, Ken Young, b. 1956, takes on Italy with a pair of street scenes from Venice: "Campo San Bartolomeo" and "Campo San Bartolomeo 2."
Jewelry designer Anni Maliki, b. 1965, presents a refreshed collection of her signature hand-crafted jewelry with new designs inspired by nature.
Nine Lives will run from October 8 through November 26, 2016
