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.

Helene Manzo: Platte Cove: Paintings & Monotypes

PLATTE COVE: Paintings and Monotypes

April 27- May 22, 2010

Artists Reception – Thursday April 29th, 5-8 pm

Helene Manzo is a working artist living in New York City for over thirty years. In the summer of 2008 she was awarded an artists residency at Platte Clove, a nature preserve located in upstate New York. Found on 208 acres of wild, old growth forest and an ancient gorge with staggering multi-tiered waterfalls, it was an ideal setting for Manzo to explore further her deep fascination with water, a recurring theme in her artwork over the years. Manzo sees water as a powerful life force that is ever changing yet constant. She captures its movement, reflections of light, and colors as a counterpoint to the still forest around it.

Alexander Purves: Watercolors


Watercolors by Alexander Purves will be exhibited in a solo show at the Blue Mountain Gallery in from March 2nd through March 27th, 2010. An artist’s reception will be held on Thursday, March 4th, from 5:00 to 8:00.

The watercolors of Alexander Purves are made from the direct observation of nature. His approach emphasizes the immediacy of the medium and its ability to capture – with minimal means – the ephemeral quality of light. The watercolor is applied in transparent layers, the unpainted white paper often acting as a positive element in the composition. Rock formations are a recurrent subject, their aspect varying from moment to moment with the changing quality of the light. These rock paintings are made on a small island in the St. Lawrence River, where he spends part of each summer. Another frequent subject is the winter landscape of northwestern Connecticut where he maintains a studio. The colors and textures of this landscape are reflected both in sketches of folding hills and in more focused studies of tangled brambles seen from the studio window. In commenting on his 2006 show at the Blue Mountain Gallery, William Zimmer observed, “[His] subjects are innately unglamorous, yet following Ruskin in this tendency to embrace the overlooked in nature, Alec Purves keeps coaxing eloquence out of brambles and rocks.”
