Transformations Is October Exhibit At River Gallery

Monday, September 24, 2012

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.
