The Splendor, Beauty, Flesh of It All

Art:

Phillip II and his grandson, Phillip IV, relished and collected paintings of nudes, both female and male. Eroticized women seen from the front, muscular men seen from the rear or strategically draped, these nudes symbolized both secular and religious power. But the kings, these Most Catholic Majesties (titles given to Ferdinand and Isabella after the expulsion of the Moors) liked to look at the pictures for pleasure, too.

Several Fine Painters in One

Art

KK Kozik is an accomplished painter. She is also problematic. At Kozik’s new show at Kent’s Ober Gallery, she moves between styles so often that you think you are viewing work from at least two, maybe three, different painters.

Beautiful Works at Argazzi

Art:

Ann E. Coulter is a favorite of Judith Singelis at her Argazzi Gallery in Lakeville. Coulter’s pastels of nature — ordinary scenes of ordinary places near her Illinois home — were almost photorealistic in their drawn detail and affect. Now, however, Coulter has begun painting with oil, and Singelis is showing a small selection of these new works in a show called Terrain.

Abstractions in Sumptuous Color

Inspired by Nature: Abstract Expression, the show at Lakeville’s White Gallery, might better have been entitled Expressions, since each of the three women artists in the show have entirely different ways of relating to nature.

Russian Art in All Its Glory

Art:

Search as much as you might, you will find little information about Elena Keller. But visit Ober Gallery in Kent, CT, and you will see the work of this powerful artist in a solo exhibition. Keller, a Russian who lives part of the year in New York City, is an original, who has taken both surrealism and abstraction into her mind, combines them with a strong sense of color, texture, even Russian and Soviet history — what contemporary Russian painter doesn’t? — and  creates fascinating oil paintings and collages.

Celebrating a Vital and Treasured Institution in Falls Village

History

Among the notable events of 1891 — the first great train robbery by the Dalton Gang; premières of plays by Ibsen and Wilde; the opening of Carnegie Hall with Tchaikovsky conducting, and the introduction of the  Swiss Army knife  by Victorinox — The David M. Hunt Memorial Library opened its doors to subscribers who paid annual dues of $1 for the privilege and the pleasure of taking out books to read at home.

How Ideas in Art Appear … and Spread

Art

Pablo Picasso supposedly declared, “Good artists copy, great artists steal.” But who would have thought Jackson Pollock, that super-macho, testosterone-drenched inventor of drip painting, might have stolen the idea — and from a woman, Janet Sobel, some of whose work is the focus of an enlightening show at James Barron Art in Kent, CT.
