Light & Space: The Paintings of Alice Dalton Brown

Meet-the-Artist Reception: April 8 , 2018 1-3 PM

Exhibition on View: February 4, 2018 – April 15, 2018

In this exhibition of large oil paintings depicting stunning distant views from within sheltered places, Alice Dalton Brown shares a vantage point that explores identity, loss, and hope. Her technique embraces the natural transparency and opacity in the various oil colors, creating the luminous and dense areas in an image, that give it depth as well as surface vitality. The strong representation of warmth and light in the imagery provides dynamics for a strong composition. Rhythmic placement of horizontal and vertical elements are a counterpoint to the complexity and uncertainty of nature.

Posters from this exhibition will be available for purchase in the Museum Store.
