July 8 – August 6 2017
Reception for the Artists
Saturday, July 8, 5-8 pm
Lauren Clark Fine Art is pleased to present “Portraits and Figures” with Berkshire Artists, Joan Barber, Richard Britell, Kris Galli and Terry Wise.
These four artists are represented by Lauren Clark and each have produced a new body of work for the occasion. The show opens with a reception for the artists Saturday, July 8 from 5-8 and runs through August 6.
Each of these artists are well known for their distinctive styles. Joan Barber for her moody, realistic yet detached women and girls, Richard Britell for his lovely soft focus, monochromatic works and Kris Galli for her luminous portraits of everything from girls and old women to voluptuous fruit. And have you ever seen how Kris paints hair? Exquisite.
And lastly, though Joan Barber, Richard Britell and Kris Galli are well regarded for their figurative and portrait paintings, Terry Wise, known mostly for her inspired still life paintings will surprise the viewer with several sublime figures. Applying her well known and very singular painting techniques to the subject at hand, the artist blends straight forward painting with a dash of the printmakers mark.
