Rosemary Dunbar: By Hand: Postcards from China and the Calligrapher’s Dream

By Hand: Postcards from China and The Calligrapher’’s Dreams

Reception: Thursday May 26th, 6-8pm

The works in this show are modest in scale emphasizing handmade intimacy and personal communication. In “Postcards from China” the souvenir Chinese postcards have a vintage, nostalgic feel. The monoprint technique used in painting reveals the limits of recollection as the image on the postcard is imperfectly printed onto the face of the postcard. Encrypted binary symbol messages on the front of the card replace the short, cheery sentences normally found on the back which detail the writer’s location and activities that are unique to that place. The postcard reminds the viewer that modern text messaging and encrypted communications with text and pictures on the internet are not really so far from the 140 character message found on increasingly obsolete picture postcards sent through physical public channels.

Location, Location, Location Mar 29 – Apr 23, 2011

Reception: Saturday, April 2nd from 3 to 6pm

Leslie K. Brill’s fourth solo show at the Blue Mountain Gallery celebrates locations in which she has divided her time over the last several years. She has grouped her work into three series, the first of which she calls “The Ithaca Series.” Brill spends a good part of her time in Ithaca, New York, and her paintings of trees that grace the area are treated in an energetic manner while remaining portrait-like in appearance. Also in this series are paintings of Slope Day at Cornell, works that humorously acknowledge the presence of academic and transient people who populate the city.

Erica Prud’homme: Earth/Water

Earth/Water March 1-26, 2011

Reception March 3, 6-8 pm

Where earth and water meet, solid versus liquid spheres, we see the planet’s variety, its strength and its fragility. The threat posed by global warming, the recent tsunamis and the many floods around the world underscore our inability to control nature. Water’s depth and energy as it laps shores or sluices through valleys, the places where earth and water meet, demand our attention and respect.

Linda Smith: Summer’s End: Paintings


September 7 – October 2, 2010

Artist’s Reception: Sat. Sept. 11th, 3–6 PM

It is the last day of vacation. In a small illuminated pool by the sea, an extended family stands transfixed as a trio plays mellow jazz beneath the moonlight. This vision began Linda Smith’s series, Summer’s End. The power of paint and composition transforms fleeting images into art that transports us to a place of possibilities and dreams. Children, the essence of our humanity, jumping through vaporous skies fly free. The ever-changing patterns of water reflect the moods of swimmers whose presence impacts on this precious element. Water envelopes the figures caressing and reinventing human form.
