Luminism

I am proud to have several new pieces on display at the Mark Gruber Gallery in New Paltz, NY. A summer exhibition focused on the luminist style of painting features the piece seen above. Entitled, “A Curtain Of Rain”, it features a view from artist Frederic Church’s home, Olana. Looking down the Hudson River as the nearby Catskill Mountains loom large, the air is frequently full of light, mists, and vapor. I visited the site for the first time in a number of years this summer and was inspired yet again by the magnificence of the view from the terrace outside his studio.
