Hey! So, you might have noticed that we haven't posted info about our shows in a long time. That's because we haven't had any! We've stopped operating as a retail gallery, but plan to have occasional events and shows from time to time. In the meantime, if you're interested in any of the work or artists you see on our pages, with enough advance notice, we'd be happy to arrange a studio visit in our space at the Beaver Mill in North Adams.

We're happy to share a couple of recent articles about us. First, the Berkshire Eagle wrote this truly wonderful review of "Four Seasons", and while they were at it, a nice summary of what we're all about. Second, we're included in this nifty round-up of art in North Adams. If you don't subscribe to the Boston Globe, you can see a slideshow version of the article here. Please take special note of slides #8 and #13, if you will.

We have always been pleased to represent Bob Lafond's energetic pastel paintings and charcoal drawings. However, as a part of "Four Seasons", we will be showing a selection of his recent oil paintings for the first time. These paintings teeter on the balance between representation and abstraction, and, as is true of all Bob's work, blur the distinction between working from life versus reference. Mud season, the ultimate inbetween time in New England, has an apt interpreter in these paintings.

(..and if you're an artist and know what we mean by that, we'll be accepting open submissions for the first time. Email us for info, or wait for the announcement.)

Karen lives in Boston where she works in paper conservation at Harvard, but she comes to the Berkshires to draw at North Adams' Natural Bridge State Park, whose rock formations and rushing water influence her multi-layered abstractions.
Karen constantly experiments with new media and compositions. Her playful approach defines her style and makes each one of her pieces truly singular. Layers of mediums (which may include watercolor, egg tempera, graphite, and charcoal), as well as her subtle use of color, lend depth and mystery to her art.
