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.

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.

If there's an upside to rehanging an entire art gallery, it's the opportunity to find new ways of appreciating the great art we have on hand. We are particularly taken with the unexpected synergy between Suzie Tarnowicz's (top) piece together with Eric March's oil painting (below).
