Burt Van Deusen: Chance Meetings

May 20 – June 14, 2014

On display from May 20,through June 14, 2014, at The Blue Mountain Gallery is the second one-person show of works by Burt Van Deusen.  The works shown were developed onPine Island,Florida, during the winter and spring of 2013.  All are charcoal drawings on paper.  They attempt to parallel natures interactions with certain human activities, both spiritual and physical.  The narrative is portrayed by some of nature’s basics elements: sky, fog, clouds, water and terra firma; and further reduced to white through near black by the use of charcoal: probably human’s first art medium.  The imagery is landscape-like, but not observations, they are invented fantasies, although they could occur.

The artist states: It is my hope that these drawings convey a quiet monumentality that will contribute to the observer’s natural inner search for a “sense of place” and belonging in their life and reality.


Richard Castellana: This and That

March 25 – April 19, 2014

Blue Mountain Gallery presents This and That, recent paintings by artist Richard Castellana.  The exhibition features more than a dozen works depicting still lifes, cityscapes, and landscapes, all replete with his innate eye for color and light.

Although Castellana’s painting style and themes vary, he maintains his signature touch—thus the title of the show, This and That.   Initially working from observation, his paintings develop through invented form, memory, and imagination.  While the influence of Bonnard, Matisse, Morandi, and Mondrian can be detected, Castellana’s practice is mainly a meditation on light and color; painting what is and is not there.

Douglas Anderson 2013

Douglas Anderson: Recent Work         December 26 – January 26 2013


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.
