On Exhibit February 2017

Larry Blovits and Jim Johnson

Larry works in pastel and oils and Jim works in watercolors.  Jim sees his work as a loose, colorful collection of watercolor paintings done on location during the past year.  The collection is a mix of landscape and still life paintings, all painted from life, indoor and outdoor in a very distinctive, impressionistic style. 

“Paint from life is intense and emotional.  I never tire of it.”  Larry will be exhibiting oil and pastel paintings, “Something old and something new.”  The power of light and how it works its magic on the landscape is forever a stimulus, and constantly challenges him to try and capture that fleeting element.  Without light there is no beauty, no color, and no story – and so he continues to try and capture it in his paintings.

On Exhibit March 2017

Richard Schaff and William Alexander

Opening Reception with the Artists

5:30-7:30pm, Friday, March 3, 2017

In March 2017 the Terryberry Gallery will host two artists who work in very different styles; Richard Schaff and William Alexander.

“My paintings are an eclectic mix of technique. I enjoy experimenting with light and shadow. Subject matter is representational while incorporating a style leaning toward pop surrealism,” said Richard.

 William says, “After fifteen years of print and multimedia design for both ad firms and in-house publishing, I decided it was time to set up my studio to create expressive, rather than graphic or commercial art.  I then participated in local exhibitions and competitions where my work garnered the interest of serious art collectors.  My art haas evolved from realistic to expressionistic to abstract, or non-representational which best describes my current genre.”
