A World of His Own Making

Excursions: Pissarro’s People at the Clark
leong@lakevillejournal.com

In “Pissarro’s People,” the Clark Art Institute has an exemplary summer show, the first exhibition of the artists’ figurative paintings and drawings. Although we do not see the dewy landscapes and authoritative cityscapes upon which his reputation rests, we do see what mattered most to Pissarro: the prospect of a radical, utopian world of collective work and happiness, and — above all — his family and seven children.

Printing With Paint, Light, Chemicals

The Art Scene
leong@lakevillejournal.com

“The Art of the Print,” at The White Gallery, is a smart show for the times. Owners Susan and Tino Galluzo have brought together three artists, all women as it happens, of very different styles and printmaking techniques to present 40 works that are almost all interesting, visually compelling and affordable.

All That Glisters Is White Gold

The Art Scene: Darren Winston, Bookseller
asherp@lakevillejournal.com

A new exhibition by master gilder Carol Leskanic, seems at home in the white and beige, elegant and discreet gallery at Darren Winston, Bookseller, in Sharon. Her layers of gold leaf, both white and yellow, cover surprising objects — some natural, some man-made — and are burnished to a soft, gentle patina. This is not the intense yellow gilding of antique picture frames this is an ancient technique updated to deliver a modern aesthetic of minimalist elegance.

A Family Matter, Alas

The Art Scene
leong@lakevillejournal.com

The art committee of the Hotchkiss Library of Sharon has sponsored good and sometimes not-so-good exhibitions since early in 2010. Now the committee has latched onto what must have seemed like a clever idea: Show the work of artists from the Hotchkiss family that gave both money and name to the institution.
So comes “Hotchkiss at Hotchkiss,” a mishmash of styles and quality, though little of the latter.

Old Books And New Tales

John Frederick Walker is an author of note: His “Ivory’s Ghosts,” a passionate history of ivory and the slaughter of elephant herds over the centuries, was a best seller. Walker is also a visual artist, and an exhibition combining both of his interests opens June 5 at Ober Gallery in Kent.

Art That’s Strange And Strangely Beautiful

The Art Scene
leong@lakevillejournal.com

Lakeville Art Night on Memorial Day weekend used to be a big deal: Streams of people meandered from one gallery to the next looking at new works, visiting with friends and enjoying wine and cheese.
But then Morgan Lehman Gallery closed its doors, and Art Night went the way of the dodo.
Or almost.
This year both Argazzi Art and The White Gallery/Lakeville have scheduled opening receptions, one commencing as the other winds up, on May 28. You’ll have to time your visits carefully to enjoy even a semblance of the former festive ambiance.

Lots of Celebrities And an Artist’s Eye

The Art Scene

At 35 and 82, Marilyn Monroe and Carl Sandburg seem an odd pairing. Yet there they are, only eight months before Monroe’s death, chatting and even dancing in four of the remarkable photographs by Arnold Newman now on view at Joie de Livres Gallery @ Salisbury Wines.

A Chance To Look at Some Youthful Art At Youthful Art

This weekend’s “Blue and Gold at the White” show, at The White Gallery in Lakeville, features the work of 45 students from Housatonic Valley Regional High School. Sixty works will be on view in acrylic, watercolor, gouache, and including mixed media, photography, printmaking, monoprints, animation and sculpture.
Dropping by teacher Warren Prindle’s advanced painting class the other day, I was struck by the seriousness in the room.

Drawn Into Another World

The Art Scene

Jane Eckert’s new gallery in Millerton, NY, is much like its owner: sophisticated, warm, eclectic.
When Will Little (who is chairman of The Lakeville Journal Company in full disclosure) and Andrew Gates invited her to relocate from Kent and take over half the building at 34 Main St., just vacated by The Gilded Moon, they told her she would have a congenial neighbor — their own Little Gates Wine Merchants — in the other half.
“I jumped at the chance to join in Millerton’s vibrancy and be closer to many clients and my own house in Millbrook,” she told me.
