Transformations, and exhibit by Jane Bloodgood-Abrams of New York and Erin Gafill of California, is the October exhibit at River Gallery. An opening reception with Ms. Gafill will be held on Friday, Oct. 5, from 6:30-8 p.m.
The exhibition features landscape painters whose works respond to the visual stimulation of the natural world and the personal transformations that emerge from this union.
Review for Jane Bloodgood-Abrams:
Ms. Bloodgood-Abrams creates moody oil paintings infused with atmospheric light and sweeping motion, with the goal of drawing viewers into an emotional experience. Her work is motivated by a desire for a greater intimacy with the land and an expression of the spiritual connection she feels to the natural world.
Review for Erin Gafill:
Erin Gafill's lifelong relationship to the rugged landscape of California results in energetic, vivid paintings of its hillsides, canyons, and pristine beaches. Gafill produces oil-on-canvas paintings emerging from the color-field and impressionistic painting traditions.
The event is free and open to the public. River Gallery is at 400 E. Second St.
