Art Scene

Indian Mountain School has opened its new Student Center with an inaugural show of work from 24 artists, most with connections to the school as former students, parents or faculty. While the art is uneven, the building is a star.

Fine and Varied Photographs At Noble Horizons

The Art Scene

The Housatonic Camera Club’s annual exhibition at Noble Horizons seems better this year, tighter and more interesting.
Most members have displayed work centered on a single theme, which allows for a deeper exploration of both subject and technique.
Bert Schmitz’s images of African animals are intimate.
In one, six zebras are grouped together in stunning black and white.

Eternal, Detailed And Fascinating

The Art Scene

Eternal Light, Hudson Light is a small, fascinating exhibition in The Moviehouse gallery in Millerton. Artists Martha and Murray Zimiles, while seemingly worlds apart in subject and technique, are both concerned with light and transcendence and the sublime.

Turning a Great Trek Into Fine Art

The Art Scene

Robert Andrew Parker’s show, “A Trek in the Himalaya,” is a coup for Sharon’s Hotchkiss Library. Parker, now 86, is the famous artist whose illustrations have appeared in many magazines — Sports Illustrated, The New Yorker, Seventeen among others — and in more than 100 children’s books.

Fine Work, Old and New, At the White Gallery

The Art Scene

The White Gallery’s 11th annual Artful Season holiday show is a holiday stocking with pieces by new artists, several extraordinary.
Two works by Emma Kindall are complex yet accessible. Working with oil, paper, charcoal, pencil and twigs, all in shades of brown, white gray and black, she captures the meaning of home, with people living in tilting or deteriorating structures. In “Pacing Bugs” a tenement house teems with life, while the family in “October House” seems oblivious to its deterioration. These are powerful comments on our times.

Jane Martin’s Women. . . Mysterious, Seductive, Ambiguous

The Art Scene

Artist Jane Martin is fascinated with the power and mystery of the female body, with the historical feminization of nature and with those especially calm moments before a show of nature’s ferocity. In her exhibition at The Hotchkiss School’s Tremaine Gallery, all are explored in gorgeous photographs, abstract paintings and a video.

Beautiful and Restrained

Art Scene

Since her first show in Falls Village in 2002, Karen LeSage has presented her paintings in 20 exhibits, some group, most solo. Five shows sold out, a record few other local artists can claim. The reasons are several, I suspect.
LeSage’s pictures are beautiful in an almost shy, unassuming way. They recall, some might say too closely, the abstract color field landscapes of Mark Rothko’s early career. And like the Rothkos, there are hidden depths in the paintings. But where Rothko was bold, assertive, insistent, LeSage is gentle, somewhat passive, restrained. And lighter.

A Show With a Poignant Theme. . . Remembering the Twin Oaks in Sharon

The Art Scene

Juried art shows are odd animals. For artists, especially local ones who make art for pleasure more than for sales, the shows offer public exposure and the hope of a prize, even a minor one, that rarely comes.

Visions Of Italy At the White Gallery

The Art Scene

The image fills a large window at The White Gallery: A small shrine (ubiquitous along roads in Italy) is on the left ; a road separates it from snow-covered land on the right; a little perpetual light glows over the shrine. Printed by photographer Avery Danziger on two pieces of paper that were then carefully and smoothly glued on plexiglass, the photograph, from a series by Luke Wynne, is luminous by day, softly glowing at night as the outside light behind it changes.

To Delight, Maybe Shock

The Art Scene

“Nude,” the photography show at Cassandra Sohn’s jewel-box gallery in Stockbridge, MA, reminds us of how the human body can be ce-
lebrated, deconstructed or made ugly. Forty-five images from 13 photographers affirm the power of photographs to surprise, delight and even shock.
Savannah Spirit’s three shots of a model named Syrie are provocative yet tame. Syrie, shown sitting naked on a bed in half light or staring straight at the camera with uncovered breasts and red lips against dark, shiny drapery, is a parody of sexiness.
