The weather change arrived late which enabled me to get out and see a few gallery shows. The best show of the night was the Sue Simon and Barbara Carpenter opening at Spark. Sue’s unique paintings incorporate scientific images and mathematical formulas. Sue sold five paintings by the time I arrived at the gallery. Barbara had beautiful photographs printed on metal which were taken in a junk yard. There’s also a great show at Sync Gallery which has paintings by Faye Crowe and photographs by Steve Keating. Faye’s colorful abstract paintings jump off the wall while Steve’s serene landscape photos are printed on wood provide a calming balance. Steve suspends the camera from a kite 200 to 300 feet above ground so he has no control over the image. The process of printing on wood softens the color and image. I also made stops at Core, Niza Knoll and the Center For Visual Art.
A soft rain started to fall when I got back to the car. It was a full on rain storm when I got home. I woke up to find everything covered with a few inches of heavy wet snow. I’ll need to find indoor activities to keep me amused this weekend.
