July 1-30, 2014
Reception Wednesday July 2, 5-8 PM

The exhibition Lightness of Bone by Martha Ebner is inspired by nature, specifically animal skull bones. Her work is an exploration of light and dark, line and color and the relationships that exist between them. Martha uses line to depict movement, color to convey tension and black and white to depict stillness in her mixed media drawings and oil-based monotypes. This exhibition is supported in part by a grant from the Northampton Arts Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Italy as my Muse 2002-2014 by Diane Harr features acrylic landscape and cityscape paintings.

"I have been living in Rome, Italy for a large part of the last fourteen years.

"A four month stay at the American Academy in Rome, in 1999, was the inspiration for many of my current paintings. I fell in love with the intersecting roof lines of Rome and other Italian cities. The succession of overlapping shapes seems to defy logic and never fails to excite the eye. There is so much variety.They are a symphony of forms that work their way rhythmically across the sky. I am a non-objective artist at heart and I felt I could play with those shapes. I use everything, the wires that cut across walls, shadows, television antennas and satellite dishes. I take all these shapes, along with the architectural forms, and merge them to make new shapes.

"I have shown my work both in Rome and in Northampton and my work is now in many private collections." -- Diane Harr

Lisa Henry presents exquisitely detailed charcoal and graphite drawings. The themes include still life, botanical, architectural and animal subjects.

Ashfield Watercolors by Walter Cudnohufsky

Walter Cudnohufsky

August 1-29, 2014

Ashfield artist and landscape architect Walter Cudnohufsky presents a solo exhibition of watercolors depicting the many moods of the New England landscape.

"Walter Cudnohufsky's paintings are steeped in the moods of the New England landscape, depicting old apple trees, birches, flowers and other pastoral vistas, including some inspired by the scenes at his farm in Ashfield, where he lives with his wife, Susan. His ultimate intent is to record what is unique in his rural surroundings." --Laura Roadley 3.22.13 Hampshire Gazette

Cudnohufsky's representational style borders on the fanciful and the semi-abstract. This is made possible by the effective editing of what he remembers while applying a well-developed sense of composition. This stems from his talent and experience as a skilled designer. With a color palette that ranges from subtle monochromatic to the brilliant hues of New England autumns and sunsets, his work is conceived, most of all, from assembled memories.
