In Color

Evening Light (From Harbor Island #3)

Color narrates the story of gallery artists’ paintings and photographs in our “In Color” exhibition. Realist and stylized views emphasize landscape extremes.

Natural phenomena expand the realist’s palette. Bright sunshine intensifies color: flowers and new green grass form broad expanses of color on canvas. Sky and land are transformed by sunset pink, orange, and bright yellow. Urban and suburban settings insert the surprising and unnatural into the natural with brightly painted walls and manufactured accents.

Optical effects from complementary colors make trees vibrate and backgrounds shimmer. Monochromatic studies accentuate atmosphere, and rainbow-colored abstractions create new realities.

Rural Life exhibit

Marcia Burtt, Spring Sky, Borrego, acrylic, 14×18 in.

Contemporary visions of rural life, from open spaces and cultivated land to farm animals and harvested crops, can be found in these paintings and photographs of life on the edge of the backcountry.

The subject is realist landscape, but a modern play with materials and representation succeeds traditional rendering.

Artists use colorful stripes of row crops and flat sharp shapes of barns and buildings to contrast with organic forms. Paintings of roadside vistas and aerial photographs provide the viewer windows to the broader topography. Cut flowers and fruit turn into abstracted trophies of agricultural landscape.

Diverse approaches to paint application, color, line, and composition create a realism that is relevant to our eclectic modern world.

Lovely beaches, beautiful paintings and big brushes in Florida!

DISAPPEARED!!

While on the walls at L’Auberge in Sedona, these paintings have vanished:
1031103

1050601

1050606

1051007

1060408

1071102

I lent these paintings to L’Auberge in 2007 where I believed they would be seen and be sold to visitors to this lovely hotel.

A year ago I realized it was time to get the paintings back, but when I contacted the manager I was told the paintings were not there and he could not help me.
He no longer returns my phone calls or emails.

Please help! If you see any of these paintings I’d appreciate knowing where they are now.
