Currently in the Gilbert Gallery in Main Dining Hall at Miss Porters School, Farmington CT
through October 4 are paintings by Tiffany Johnson.
"First I paint from observation. After observation I work from memory and invent. Nature and my state-of-mind are important in deciding how to compose my works. I am attracted to ideas that allow me to setup a drawing or a painting and change, adapt and challenge my own perceptions of what fascinates me: this can range from simple everyday objects, to urbanscapes, to landscapes, or to compositions inspired by collages. Technique, line, surface and color play into my process; and every part of the picture is carefully thought out in the way I decide to compile the image."

Twenty Eight Inexplicable Artists
Strange Figurations focuses our attention on unusual and inexplicable figurative art forms.

Some works seem intended to shock us with meaningless weirdness, weirdness for it’s own sake. Other pieces tell stories and although strange in appearance, have political and cultural messages attached. Overall the intent is to provoke thought, through direct symbolism, storytelling and by touching our innate, primal curiosity.

The Limner Gallery will be open during the exhibition for public viewing
Thursday to Saturday 12-5pm. The gallery is also open by appointment.
Limner Gallery, 123 Warren Street, Hudson, NY 12534 / 518-567-7858
William Baczek Fine Arts
Mallory Lake uses very soft, hand-made pastels that cover the surface in a rich, buttery layer of dense pigment. She once said of her work, "If you want to paint light, you have to paint dark".  This seemingly contradictory statement refers to her ability to capture extremely subtle, transitory moments when the landscape is mostly dark or in shadows but illuminated with the highlights of sunrise or sunset.
