Views of an installation

We had a great time this week hosting Karen Walter as she installed 150 (that's right, one-hundred-and-fifty) fantastic drawings for "Black and White (more or less)" opening on 7.26.12.  Each drawing has it's own sense of power, but watching them all come together on the art gallery walls was really something special. A Boston-based artist, her abstract drawings are largely based on her observations of the tidepools and rock formations at Natural Bridge in North Adams.

Featuring paintings, drawings, and prints in a generally, if not exclusively, monochrome mood.  Featuring Karen Walter's ambitious installation from her ongoing "Nature Unbounded" project, and Bob Lafond's vibrant Brooklyn streetscapes.  The show also features a survey of Frank Curran's strong, graphic prints of interiors, industrial landscapes, and rock formations that verge on abstraction.  We are also pleased to present a selection of Eric March's work, including paintings completed at his residencies in the Hudson Valley and Provincetown.
