2018 Joan Kelly – Invisible Personas

April 24 – May 19, 2018

Reception: April 26, 5-8 pm

Discussion  April 28, 2-3 followed by reception 3-6

Blue Mountain Gallery presents member artist, Joan Kelly in an exhibition of works entitled “Invisible personas”. While it is true our faces carry our identity to the outside world, yet how ironic is it that these very faces (identities) remain invisible to ourselves. Just as the surgeon can open up our chest and see our heart, yet she cannot see the intentions or innermost thoughts of the individual who holds them. In this collection of work, Joan Kelly, an artist who has lived in Singapore for the last 13 years, attempts to paint invisible personas by reaching beyond the usual boundaries and perceptions that separate groups of people from one another.

Carol Heft: Work on Paper

The Blue Mountain Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of work by Carol Heft from March 1 – 26, 2016.  The exhibition will include collage, drawing, painting, digital images, and constructions in a variety of materials. Ms. Heft’s work is inspired by an exploratory approach to materials, and the interchange of two and three dimensional space on flat surfaces. Her new work combines physical and illusionary layers of space populated by imaginative formal combinations. With careful attention to composition, random arrangements are juxtaposed in compelling designs.

Doug Anderson 2016

Figures and Landscapes  Feb 2-27, 2016

Opening reception: February 6, 20163-6pm

The title of Doug Anderson’s 5th show at Blue Mountain Gallery is “Figures and Landscapes.” In this group of paintings he continues his exploration of the possibilities of ink on paper. The simplicity and directness of the technique is very amenable to an open-ended, intuitive approach such as his. Yet as simple as the technique appears, it also can be infinitely subtle; one can spend a whole lifetime mastering the expressive potential of ink on paper. In traditional Chinese painting, for example, an artist may spend decades or even his whole career mastering the painting of bamboo.

Panel discussion, March 14 at 5 pm: Artists Confronting Climate Change

Gallery Talk March 21 at 2:30

Marcia Clark’s new Arctic paintings reveal a world of tundra and ice, suggesting the metamorphosis of a landscape by brush stroke, movement and rhythm.    Her odysseys to Greenland and Iceland year after year are layered with personal meaning.

I keep returning to the Arctic and am captivated by the beauty of what I see, states the artist. But what was once excitement, witnessing the extraordinary and new, now holds the poignancy of a moment captured that’s passing away.
