"Places," an intimate exhibition in the Vault Series at the New Bedford Art Museum, curated by Joan Backes, is on display until January 6th.
Franklin Einspruch uses a heavy impasto of paint in "Snow and Curving Oaks" to depict gnarly deep-brown trees, barren of leaves, casting pale blue shadows on a blanket of snow. It is a handsome expressionist painting, grounded in reality, yet veering toward the abstract. Ellen Lanyon's "Chicago T" is a color lithograph that playfully romanticizes the Windy City skyline beneath a toenail moon. Other exhibiting artists are Ruth Miller, Ben Frank Moss, and Temma Beal.
Many thanks to Don Wilkinson for the coverage.
