Upcoming Events

The most famous paintings produced by the 19th-century White Mountain School of landscape painting have tended to be of the Mount Washington Valley region on the big mountain’s eastern side.

A new exhibit opening at Holderness School on April 20—“West of Washington: Between Nature and Time”—will show that paintings and drawings of equal majesty and accomplishment were produced on the other side of the mountain—depictions of stirring places in the Lakes Region, the Pemigewasset Valley, Franconia Notch, and the North Country.

The Gatehouse Gallery is pleased to announce the show entitled “Another Compass For Another Mountain”, which will open on April 1st, and run through April 30, 2012. The artists’ reception is scheduled for April 14th, from 5 PM to 7 PM. The show includes work from New Hampshire artist Daryl-Ann Dartt Hurst.

The show, by and large, will feature work is that is quite flat, geometric in orientation, and plays with Cubist planes and spacial ambiguities. The watercolor-mixed media pieces, in some cases, are meant to be intimate reactions to larger events.

 I hope with these works not to break out of my 16-square grid, but to add dimension to them. This grid has followed my artistic career for a very long time, and I almost want to just call the rest ’16′. But, as I push the boundaries, the grid disappears in places, and fluctuates from piece-to-piece in importance. It’s not about the grid, it’s with the grid. I have never dealt with the Whites as ‘the other mountains’—I guess it’s time.
