‘The Shape of Color’ at Berkshire Botanical’s Gallery

Art

Brilliant colors greeted us last week at the Leonhardt Galleries at the Berkshire Botanical Garden in Stockbridge, Mass. On a cold, sunny November morning we arrived at the gallery to a giant fresh floor to ceiling wall of green plants designed by the garden’s chairperson Matt Larkin, and then we saw painter Cynthia Wick’s recent explosions of color.

Beautiful But Brutal Flowers At Standard Space in Sharon

Art

Do you crane your neck to see the car crash by the side of the road? Do you wonder at the story behind the anemic mug shot? Does your phone ping for every notification of a catastrophic headline? Tragedy and death may be among us, but a vicarious front row seat to it is an experience that is only infrequently offered.

From Garbage to Garb at American Mural Project Gala

Fun Fashion

Old clothing, bedspreads, roping, turkey feathers and beaver bones may be trash to most, but to Debby Moore of Sharon, they are haute couture. Moore’s wearable art, “Marvelized Memorabilia,” was among the nearly 40 designs to grace the catwalk at the American Mural Project’s Art of Work gala fundraiser “Recycled Runway” on Saturday, Sept. 28.

Contrast, Shifting Planes, Relevance and Relativity

Art

There is an opening of real interest coming to Standard Space in Sharon. Theo Coulombe, the proprietor, has discovered a brain-slapping body of work by Siobhan McBride.
She distills physical experience. She imposes relevance on rooms she finds, and to see it is to feel multiple unfolding events wrapped in the stillness of paint. To lift her words out of context: “Everything you’re thinking or reading all gets laid on top of one another.”

Shimmering Texture, Tone and Individuality

Art: ‘Tales from the Golden Age and Other Stories’

Photographer John Atchley’s gold leaf work is the centerpiece and highlight of his current solo show at the Hunt Library in Falls Village. “Tales from the Golden Age and Other Stories” encompasses a beguiling group of landscape and still life photographs. 
It is clear that the artist has not been limited by a narrow definition of photography and his work benefits greatly from this freedom. As he notes in his artist statement, “I have been wanting to get away from what I call flat photography, i.e., a normal print on paper.”

Tapestries of Landscapes and Flowers

Art: ‘Presently (Formerly)’

North Elm Home in Millerton is hosting a show of paintings by Lilly Woodworth, the Sharon-based artist. Woodworth works in oils, employing an extensive and enlivening color palette. In one landscape, the colors seem drawn from the Southwest, others are Matisse-bright, while trees may appear as sweeps of reds and orange or clusters of layered greens. The artist calls herself “a landscape and flower painter,” and she delivers both in the show, which feels comfortably at home in the North Elm space.

Four Artists At Re Institute

Art

The depth and breadth of a group exhibition being held at the Re Institute in Millerton, N.Y., warrants a dedicated visit. The artists represented are Hong Hong, Brigitta Veradi, Richard Baim and Peter Fulop.
Hong Hong’s work originates as huge sheets of paper, handmade from mulberry bark,  treated with ash, and imbued with dyes. The paper is made in the out-of-doors, in a yard or a parking lot, on a modular mold measuring 12 x 8 inches. Each sheet  takes about one day to make.
