Don't Miss This Forstmann Exhibit

Eric Forstmann — Still Workings, currently at Eckert Fine Art in Kent, is the artist’s 15th solo show with the gallery. It is also testament to how Eckert has worked with the painter to build an important career. The title is also a clever play on how Forstmann looks at a subject — he paints only what he can see, not what he remembers — and works them, through angle, brush strokes, color, treatment of light, into something powerful and unexpected.

Painting On Metal

Art: ‘David Dunlop: The Electric City’

David Dunlop never stops experimenting, changing, or finding new ways to communicate in his art. 
He is also a cerebral artist: He believes that Western art has been captive to the imperative of a a single focal point for centuries, which is not the way the eye actually sees. Instead the eye takes in millions of bits of visual data, including, importantly, information from the edges of a scene, then processes all of them to create what we call “form and meaning.”

Fantastic Art At Rockwell

Art: ‘Never Abandon Imagination: The Fantastical Art of Tony DiTerlizzi’

The name Norman Rockwell usually conjures images of realistically painted scenes of everyday life. So the upcoming show of Tony DiTerlizzi’s art at the Norman Rockwell Museum might be a tad unexpected.
“We hope to bring in an audience that doesn’t necessarily come to the Norman Rockwell Museum,” Jesse Kowalski, the exhibit’s curator, said during a recent interview.

Dunlop’s Exhibit Extended

Art

The White Gallery, cut off from visitors by road work in Lakeville for over two weeks, is accessible  again. As a result, David Dunlop’s intriguing show, “The Electric City,” a collection of cityscapes (and some landscapes) painted on brushed silver laminated aluminum, has been extended through Nov. 19.  “Approach to 59th Street Bridge,”above, shows the sense of movement and energy Dunlop captures on metal. A full review of the show will appear in the Nov. 9 issue of Compass.

Generations Of Artists At Noble Show

Art: ‘All in the Family’

All in the Family, the current exhibition at Noble Horizons, is a collection of works by seven artistic families in the area. Oils vie with pastels, watercolors with ink drawings, a bit of sculpture with ceramic pots and jewelry. Since there is no common theme, subjects vary and charm sometimes outweighs quality, though there is some fine work on display.

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.
