Deborah Garner at Gallery in the Woods, April Opening
The earliest Spring in memory followed the icy start to March.
Now, as the final days of this fickle month are here, we have gone from
the sweet songs of Spring peepers and flowering forsythia back to the chilly blasts of Arctic air.
The poor goldfinches are mottled in olive and yellow not knowing whether to fully commit or not…
The rest of us motley humans are committed, and not looking back, despite the low readings on the thermometer at night!
In that spirit, April 6th is the second opening for my painting exhibition “Glimpsing Apeiron” at Gallery in the Woods in Brattleboro,Vermont.
This first Gallery Walk of the season is always a party, as people turnout in droves to celebrate the longer days and local artists.
Besides my work, there are lots of fine arts and crafts to be savored and our opening’s live musical guests will be Jesse Lepkoff and friends playing sultry Bossa Nova from 6 pm - 8:30 pm. Many of the 40 or so exhibits around town will feature live music as well…
The oil painting shown here is a diptych that measures 6' x 4' called "Tsunami". It was being painted last year when the tragic tsunami struck Japan and was my reflection on the plethora of global natural disasters and mankind continuing to do business as usual, leaving the animals to attempt to migrate around it all.
It is featured in this exhibition and has received a lot of favorable attention,I'm happy to say.
If you find yourself in Western Massachusetts or Southern Vermont please come on out and support the Arts in downtown Brattleboro!
Hoping to see many familiar faces there!
