Nancy Beal: The Days – Recent Paintings – January 29 – February 23, 2008

An exhibition of recent paintings of Nancy Beal will be on view at the Blue Mountain Gallery from January 29 to February 23, 2008.

Nancy Beal’s work is notable for capturing the dazzle of a summer day in large on-site paintings.  Lush foreground gardens are set in spacious landscapes.  The gesture of brushstroke, abundant light and the dance of paint combine in dynamic balance.  A fullness of detail and breadth of spirit convey the radiance of the days.
