Gina Sawin Recent Work 2012


Gina Sawin, Recent Work

April 24 – May 19, 2012

Gina Sawin will exhibit recent work from her ongoing series of bird paintings. Connected at once to earth, water, and sky, birds symbolize delicate ecological balances and, as a motif in Sawin’s paintings, they suggest our spiritual – and perhaps tenuous – connection to the planet. These shore and water birds, often featured alone, are suspended between the naturalistic and the emblematic, representing not necessarily how we see birds, but how we feel their presence.

Owen Gray: Look Up, Look Down

March 27th – April 21st

Opening Reception: Thursday, March 29th 5-8 PM

Owen Gray’s ninth solo show at Blue Mountain Gallery illustrates two perspectives the artist has been engaged in for years. From above, you are looking down at aquatic wild life, musical instruments, overturned boats – all in the thick of a dense, tropical environment. From below, you are looking at freefalling creatures and objects of desire as they whirl every which way. Gray’s subject matter is indirectly influenced by the Italian painter Tiepolo, Pieter Brueghel, Hieronymus Bosch, and 17th-century Dutch artists.

Anne Diggory: Turbulence

January 3 – 28, 2012

Opening Reception: January 5, 6-8 pm

Closing Reception: January 28, 4-6 pm

Blue Mountain Gallery presents Turbulence, an exhibition by Anne Diggory that includes recent paintings and mixed media works with dynamic instability in motif and medium. The turbulence, from slight to extreme, occurs in waters, skies and tabletop arrangements. Hybrid works combine sections of photography and painting in a multi-layered process. In these, the surface of the artwork is disturbed by the abrupt and gradual transitions between modes of representation. Further disruptions, slightly tempered by stable horizons, occur with deep spaces, off-kilter compositions and irregular perimeters that energize the work.

Marcia Clark: Travels: Paintings and Oil Sketches

TRAVELS: Paintings and Oil Sketches, October 4-29, 2011

Paintings by Marcia Clark in her exhibition at Blue Mountain Gallery are a result of journeys to Greenland and Iceland over the past three years, and local travels between her home upstate and her studio in Manhattan. Pathways, roads, ice or waterways are repeated features of these paintings in which movement is an undercurrent. The larger works are amalgams of experience, often incorporating multiple panels and a mixture of media.

Sharyn Finnegan: Evolution: Self-Portrait Retrospective and Recent Work

Evolution: Self-Portrait Retrospective and Recent Work, Sept. 6 – Oct. 1, 2011

Reception: Thursday, Sept. 8, 5-8

Sharyn Finnegan’s images come from the coasts of England, Iceland, Newfoundland, Denmark and around her NY and Vermont homes. Her work centers on focused observation of the subject, whether figure or landscape. The time this takes dictates the technique, working deliberately on still subjects in sunshine with oils or pencil, or working loosely in charcoal on more ephemeral subjects such as fog. Depending on the situation, Finnegan’s work can leap from 4″x 6″ to 30″x 40″ or larger, or from a very horizontal format to a very vertical one. She deliberately resists the easy packaging of consistent scale, shape or subject, believing that variability and complexity is closer to our real lives and her work must reflect this.
