Paint as Subject: new works Dorothy Goode, James Leonard, Melanie Parke and Carl Plansky
Paint is not often thought of as the subject matter or genre of a painting. Quite the contrary, subjects usually include landscapes, figures, or still lives, but for these four talented artists, paint takes center state in their vibrant and colorful compositions. By studying their application, manipulation, and removal of paint from the canvas with brushes, trowels, palette knives and other tools, it is clear that each of the artists featured in this upcoming show value the importance of paint.
GET THIS! GALLERY–open 11am-5pm. FREE.
