Luscious Aquatic Landscapes at KMR

Art: Kim Keever: ‘Landscape Dreams I Remember’

Kim Keever’s eerily beautiful, fabricated landscapes currently on view at KMR Arts represent a concise range of his work from 2002 to 2008. The artist’s poetic, luxurious, curious vision grabs hold of the viewer and pulls her into the image’s vortex of color, light and atmosphere. Keever achieves a compelling balance between immediacy and distance, off-kilter oddity and compositional balance, otherworldliness and familiarity. In his very modern artistic approach the scientist-photographer constructs formal, voluptuous classical earthscapes.

The End of The Brass Era In Cornwall Exhibit

Photography: ‘Brazen Grit: Images of Brass Valley’

Not far from the iron rich region of Northwest Connecticut is the steep valley of Connecticut’s Naugatuck River, called “Brass Valley.” From the beginning of the industrial revolution, the Naugatuck Valley was the seat of the world’s brass industry. Buttons, clips, weapons, clocks and bank safes were all made in factories from Bridgeport to Winsted.

Images of India at Salisbury School

Art

A sadhu in Rajasthan, India, offers a greeting to photographers Dan Mead and Sally Eagle, whose show, “Namaste: Images of India” opens at Salisbury School’s Tremaine Gallery on Friday, April 6, with a reception from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Sadhus are holy men who have renounced all material comforts and possessions and live in forests, caves and temples as hermits all over India. They are respected but often feared for their curses. “Namaste” is on view through May 4.

Master Drawings At the Clark

Art: ‘Drawn To Greatness’

It would be a challenge to choose the highlights from among the more than 150 drawings that make up “Drawn to Greatness: Masters Drawings from the Thaw Collection,” which is currently on view at the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown. This difficulty speaks not to a dearth of notable works, but rather the tremendous abundance that have been brought together for this outstanding show.

Finding Beauty in Everyday Objects

Art

An enormous pair of scissors lies behind one window of Sharon’s Standard Space gallery, a large carpenter’s rule  stands upright, partially unfolded behind the other. These ordinary objects, rendered large scale, demand that you look at them in a new way, as functional yet beautiful objects.
 
    Inside the gallery, four sculptures rest on bases, while wonderfully detailed etchings and intaglio prints — only one is an ink jet print with black and red pencil notations — hang precisely on the wall.

Reconsidering Andy Warhol

Art: ‘People Are Beautiful’

If you have never given Andy Warhol much credence as an artist, only as a self-promoting showman, a visit to Vassar College’s Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center should change your mind. “People are Beautiful” is the first of five exhibitions of Warhol’s work that will run successively, sometimes concurrently, at five academic museums in the Hudson Valley through November 2018. (Google Warhol x5 for details.)

Magazzino Museum

Art

On a snowy day last week my friend Anne and I visited Magazzino, the new Post War Italian Art Museum in Cold Spring, NY (about an hour drive from Salisbury).  Considering that we both live in the area, we were late checking it out. The art world cognoscenti  have been making trips since it opened last summer, proclaiming it “totally surprising,” “divine,” and “an amazing gift to the area.”
