Summer Landscapes features John Duckworth, Paul Hagedorn, and Katie Bollman Walker. These three Southern artists work primarily in wall-sized art. Light, airy, effervescent pieces that speak to summer’s lazy, meditative season are the order of the day.
Charleston artist John Duckworth’s Landscape Abstract series are luminous color field photographs are printed directly onto canvas and are presented without glass, thanks to the UV coating of his varnishing process. Reminiscent of Mark Rothko’s abstract, emotive work, but in a sunnier vein, they are truly paintings from a camera. His personal relationship with nature and Eastern religions informs their serenity and beauty. There will also be a screening the award winning 20 minute documentary on Duckworth’s creative process, “Day In The Life,” all day.
Two Atlanta artists, Paul Hagedorn and Kathleen Bollman Walker, who joined the gallery this year, will also be contributing art. Mr. Hagedorn will be premiering three elegant wall size black and white pieces from his new Italian Portfolio- 2011 series and re-presenting some of his classic landscapes.
Kathleen Bollman Walker, who joined the gallery this year, will be showing several of her large color Plains works, plus her Misrach ocean piece. Ms.Walker’s six piece portfolio Somewhere Between Point A & Point B, a survey of her work up until this time, will also be available during the exhibition.
Through July 1.
