Body Art: Part II
compass@lakevillejournal.com

Diane Love is an adventurous and canny woman, ready to drop one idea when a better one comes along.
Here’s what I mean. One day she was setting her telescopic camera lens on early Roman sculptures in a Berlin museum. This was her latest project, photographing works of art. So she had her Nikon F3 trained on these venerable figures, and just as she hit the shutter another museum-goer leaned into the frame to get a better look at the busts.

End-of-Summer Art In Lime Rock

The Art Scene
leong@lakevillejournal.com

One of the rewards of visiting Trinity Episcopal Church's annual end-of-summer art show is to see how some local artists have developed since the last exhibition. Tina Chandler, for example, now paints pastels on “constructed” surfaces: Small squares of board are glued onto a larger surface, then she paints both on and around the resulting grid. You'll think you are looking through window panes at her landscapes.

Like Chapters in a Book

Cleve Gray was 60 years old in 1978 and must surely have been considering aging when he painted most of the pictures in his “Perne” series, now on exhibition in Kent’s Morrison Gallery.
The title comes from William Butler Yeats’s great poem, “Sailing to Byzantium,” which begins, “That is no country for old men.”
For Yeats the great city, which he never saw, represented eternal life on earth through art and architecture; and he invoked its great sages — perning, or spinning, in a gyre — to gather him and his art into eternity.

Two Artists, Two Views

The Art Scene
leong@lakevillejournal.com

When Sharon library’s art mavens chose Patty Mullins and Lilly Woodruff for a two-person show, they selected painters who differ in subjects and techniques. One paints mysterious, often brooding pictures; the other lays on thick vertical or horizontal slashes of paint or, more abstractly, wide ribbons of unexpected colors to create her landscapes.

Taking Photography And Ideas for Photography . . . Into Strange Totally New Worlds

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

A study of an ordinary object is not a new idea, but it still works — very well in James Boeding’s “Book Play,” a photographic exhibit at Lady Audrey’s Gallery in Millerton, NY.
In its own right, the display is mesmerizing; a wall-filling grid of 13 matted photographs resembling little windows, each revealing a graphic, boldly-colored scene. Boeding credits local printer Berkshire Digital Studio for giving his prints, limited to 25 each, professional pizazz.

The White Gallery Reopens With an Old Favorite

The Art Scene

Exhibiting three quite different landscape painters in a single, open space is a daunting challenge. Yet that is what Tino Galluzzo has chosen to do for the first show in his new – and newly renovated – White Gallery located behind the original White, which is now home to Gallery Arts Guild. Agitated work by David Dunlop, a White favorite, is hung near the calm, intricate oils of Carolyn Edlund and the simple, emphatically horizontal pictures of Victor Leger.

Women Painters at Eckert

The Art Scene
leong@lakevillejournal.com

A chance meeting with art historian Judith Kafka Maxwell introduced Jane Eckert to the work of Anna Richards Brewster and eventually led to the dual show of women artists now in Eckert’s gallery in Millerton: A lovely group of Brewster’s paintings from the early 20th century hang in Eckert’s front room, while contemporary works by nine other women occupy the rear space.

Glass, Water and Whispers

Judith Singelis has a superb eye for contemporary art. Within the space limits of her Argazzi Gallery, she shows work that can surprise and delight. On exhibit, now, are paintings and glass pieces from three women whose work is very different but all very fine.

From Strange To Very Good

The Art Scene
leong@lakevillejournal.com

Jane Strong and John Brett opened Gallery Arts Guild in Lakeville to showcase the work of emerging artists and artisans in the area. Their first exhibit is a mixed bag. Some of the work is good and some not. Even from the same artist, quality can vary surprisingly.

Art in Millerton

compass@lakevillejournal.com

It’s a barn with an ancient, rusty thermometer outside and a weedy path to the door. On the outside. On the inside, though, it is an art gallery featuring the work of three artists in a show titled Photos of Things Next to Me. One of the artists, Jeff Barnett-Winsby, “shoots what you see from a train, the backyard of America,” gallery organizer Henry Klimowicz says. The images are lean and a little too clean. Greg Lock “makes very 21st-century photos,” Klimowicz says, one of them a barn in various stages of con- and de- struction.
