The Poetry Of TreesThe Poetry Of Trees

Art: Robert Kipniss: Solitude

Over the last 60 years, Robert Kipniss has produced paintings and prints of a unique sensibility. While there may be hints of influences in some pieces, the purity, mystery and silence they convey are Kipniss’ alone. These are works coming entirely from his memory and imagination, from the solitude of his studio, where he paints three days a week, and from his deep personal relationship with each picture.

These Varied Works Are A Treat

Art: Trinity Gallery Juried Art Show

The Trinity Gallery Juried Art Show, running through Oct. 15, presents paintings and drawings of rivers, mountains, lakes, fields, barns, familiar landmarks, cute kids, cute animals and flowers. 
Plenty of flowers. 
It has the stuff of magic, too. Robert Cronin, that master painter and storyteller, has three pieces in the show, each with its own beguiling secrets. Particularly beautiful is his “Sleeping Gypsy,” a woman in white lying in a cradle near the sea, with her own moon and stars overhead. It’s gorgeous. And mysterious.

Capturing The Soft Embrace Of Light

Art: The Photography of Anne Day

Famous for her news pictures — Nelson Mandela walking out of prison, this year’s Women’s March in Washington, D.C. — and architectural images that filled five books, Anne Day is showing softer images, as well as some that recall a deeply personal tragedy, in an exhibition that opened last weekend at Salisbury School as a fundraiser for Salisbury Family Services.

Lines Form Imagined Dreamscapes

Art: ‘Kit White — Recent Work’

The cerebral show of Kit White’s work, now on display at Eckert Fine Art in Kent, is a fascinating study of how an artist gives his own meaning to learned concepts and experience.

Intersection Of Art And Life’s Mysteries

Art: ‘Altars, Amulets and Shrines’

Libraries are wonderful places: Books (of course), music (sometimes), movies, talks, exhibitions, company. But for Matthew Nelson, the David M. Hunt Library in Falls Village was a place for this hiker to check emails and charge his cell phone.

A Fun, Engaging, Magical Exhibit

Art: ‘Vagabond Time Killers’

Summer may have unofficially ended with Labor Day weekend, but you still have time to explore the Wassaic Project’s summer exhibition, “Vagabond Time Killers,” before it closes on Sept. 24.
This fascinating collection of works was curated by Wassaic Project co-directors Jeff Barnett-Winsby, Eve Biddle and Bowie Zunino. The inspiration for the exhibition came from a black-and-white photo Barnett-Winsby found online that features a group of young people with the words “Vagabond Time Killers, 1901, Wassaic, NY,” written on the back.

If Nude Photos Alarm You, Proceed With Caution

Art

In addition to the usual items in a photographer’s studio — soft boxes, a spot light, a tripod — Stuyvesant Bearns of Lakeville has a collection of high-heeled shoes and elaborate Edwardian-style wigs. That’s because among his interests in fine-art photography are nude women. Usually in black and white, some adorned, some not, wonderfully lit and all of them beautiful.
To mark his 80th birthday, Bearns will exhibit some of the images he has taken in the last six years at the Center on Main in Falls Village Sept. 8 to 10.

Nature Seen In A New Light

Art: ‘New Works: Sarah Martinez and Lilly Woodworth’

Sarah Martinez and Lilly Woodworth both paint nature — impressions, memories, abstractions — in surprising color combinations that jar or gently lure the eye into seeing something familiar in a new way. Contrasts and similarities between the two artists can now be compared in “New Works: Sarah Martinez and Lilly Woodworth,” the current show at The White Gallery in Lakeville.

Local, Natural Beauty

Art

North Elm Home’s gallery wall, washed in brilliant but not-too-harsh white light, is the perfect place to enjoy Jack Limpert’s 16 gentle paintings now on exhibit there. 
Limpert, who is neither a trained nor professional artist, brings a fine eye and design sense — he was creative director of a leading catalog and direct sales company for years — to his work, which is never sentimental nor saccharine.
