The Knox Gallery opens the fall season with Perennial, which features the work of 5 local painters who meet regularly to take advantage of the beautiful and varied subject matter that our outdoor Berkshire landscape offers. This dedicated and hardy group consists of four Montereyans: Joe Baker, Maureen Banner, Christine Brunaski Goldfinger, and Ron Goldfinger, and Sheffield resident Richard Kimball.
The tradition of painting outdoors – en plein air -- represents leaving behind both the physical and academic confines of working in the studio to embrace and observe the natural light and the visual stimulus that surround us, at different times of day and in different seasons. Banner notes, “painting plein air is a great way to be outdoors, observing and expressing color and form, and is portable!”
Please join us for the opening reception of Perennial on Saturday, October 5, from 6:30 – 8 p.m. to enjoy the images of nature that these artists have captured and shared with us.
