Photographs Without Cameras

Photography: ‘Light + Dark’

An exhibit of photographs that have been made without cameras sounds like a gimmick, but “Light + Dark,” the current show at Sohn Fine Art Gallery in Lenox proves that in the hands of skilled artists it results in wonderful and unexpected work. The exhibition is small, featuring just two artists—the American photographer, Chuck Kelton and the English artist, Garry Fabian Miller—but there is much not only to consider but to reconsider here. This is a show that is radiant and gimmick-free.

Three Renowned American Artists and Their Teachers in Rockwell Exhibit

Art: ‘Keepers of the Flame: Parrish, Wyeth, Rockwell and the Narrative Tradition’

For the last decade, award winning illustrator Dennis Nolan has  immersed himself into proving that the artistic lineage that produced the Golden Age of Illustration may be traced back 500 years to the Renaissance.   What began as a slide lecture comically titled, “From Rock Wall to Rockwell,” Nolan says, “I  spun a tale about Norman Rockwell’s artistic roots, I linked him and his teachers to a centuries-old tradition of narrative painting and art instruction.” As he looked more closely he discovered it was true.

Three Venerable Artists In Open Your Eyes Tour

Art

Want  to travel, raise a family, entertain friends, be engaged  and productive into your 80s and 90s and grow old with pride and even joy? In a beautiful place?
Be an artist. In northwest Connecticut.

Barkoff Exhibit at the White

Art

Ira Barkoff paints nature from his studio on a mountain top: the forest and the sky and changing light. His pictures contain his deep joy at seeing the natural world as perfect, filled with a purpose greater than what lies before him. He does not attempt to catch a specific time, nor a specific place. Instead, through layering and blending colors, he paints a new natural world, one that is personal and emotional to him.

Luminous, Tactile Paintings Featured at Argazzi

Art

At first you might think Sandrine Kern creates her gorgeous pictures now at Argazzi Art with encaustic, but you would be wrong. Instead of that hot wax technique, Kern combines oil sticks, oil paint and cold wax for her deep, thick surfaces. She then scrapes away some layers with solvents or knife, leaving a surface of ridges and valleys, rich and tactile.

Nudes and Decaying Buildings At KMR

Photography

Barbara Vaughn’s current show at KMR Arts embraces the artist’s different but complementary vernaculars: classic black and white representational photography and innovative photographic pigment transfer onto aluminum support. At first glance, the images seems disparate, contrasting, possibly at odds. Gradually, as the viewer takes in the whole, the patterns and colors resolve together into a refreshing sequence of poetic rhythm. The contrast of color and monotone, gritty texture and smooth sinew, focus and abstraction is deliberate and evocative.

Abstract Paintings At The Hunt Library

Art

Sallie Ketcham says she loves “playing in paint like a child in a mud puddle,” and it shows in her colorful show of oils and monoprints now at the David M.  Hunt Library in Falls Village. Ketcham, who has studied and taught art for years, looks for the telling detail in nature that allows her to make sense, and art, out of what can seem chaotic.
