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.
April 22 – May 17, 2014
In a time when the word icon can mean anything from commercialized images that flood the media to religious icons, the paintings of Linda Smith, Secular Icons, help to fill a void in contemporary life. In a complex stressful world, her paintings offer a place for quiet meditation, without a specific doctrine.
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.
Feb 25 – March 22, 2014
Opening Reception: Thursday Feb. 27, 5-8 pm
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.
