The exhibition, entitled “Passages,” includes ten new works varying in size from miniature premiere coupe studies to ambitious large-scale diptychs, all of which focus on the trees surrounding Grimes’ studios in Connecticut and Maine.  Ranging from the stark and somber to the lush and sensuous, these trees appear as personages, which are immediately observed and yet metaphorical, with implications of time, change, mortality and rebirth.

Rose Weinstock: Additional Architectural Paintings

May 21 – June 15, 2013

Artist Reception  Thurs. May 23, 5-8 pm

Rose Weinstock’s exhibition, Additional Architectural Paintings, returns to a theme that has interested her for many years. The paintings are carefully observed depictions of quotidian subjects transformed into unique images that express the artist’s emotional reaction to the subject. Although painted in a straightforward manner, with attention to detail, there is considerable concern for formal issues.   The compositions are carefully constructed and emphasize abstract relationships. Close cropping and the geometry of shapes intensify formal power.  Color and light and shadow evoke mood.

Douglas Anderson: Recent Work

Douglas Anderson: Recent Work

December 26 – January 26 2013

Opening reception: December 27, 5-8pm

Blue Mountain Gallery announces an exhibition of recent works by Douglas Anderson. The artist returns to the gallery for his first solo show since 2006 with a series of abstract images on paper. Drawing his inspiration from the masters of calligraphy of China and Japan, who sometimes describe their approaches as “walking” or “running” styles, Anderson, in these new paintings, has created whole universes with no more than black ink or pencil. He is attracted to the metaphor walking/running and thinks it describes perfectly his attempts to draw at the speed of thought, which is sometimes slow and ponderous and sometimes faster than the hand can record.

Blue Mountain Gallery showcases the gallery artists in “Points of View” December 1-22 with a reception Saturday, December 1st from 3 to 6 pm.  While any work of art is an artist’s point of view, the works in this exhibition focus on that quality.  The pieces include interpretations of microscopic forms, expressive manipulations of unusual angles of vision, playful placements of figures whose points of view contrast with that of the artist and more abstract presentations of a visual experience.  Reflecting the broad range of artistic approaches, the literal positions taken include a range from precarious to stable, and the kind of details varies from carefully detailed to highly abstracted and expressive.  The exhibition includes sculpture, prints, drawings, mixed media and paintings.

Jenny Toth: Capture and Release

Jenny Toth : Capture and Release

October 30 – November 29, 2012

Reception POSTPONED TO SATURDAY, November 10, 3-6pm

In this solo show, Toth further explores her passionate empathy for animals and their intimate connection to humans. The work is loosely based around the theme of being in some way captured or contained–by a leash, fence, rope, or dense foliage–contrasted with imagery of shattered constraints, animals set loose, breaking through to freedom. Always grounded in painting from direct observation, Toth continues to weave together self-portraiture with this thematic core, often with an understated humor.

Marie Roberts (Brooklyn) and Deborah Stern (Tucson, Arizona) are artists who have known each other for many years, yet live in almost parallel universes.

This artistic collaboration is an outgrowth of their often similar worldview, each one emphasizing the stark nature of injustice and inequality that pervades their immediate environment.
