Vessels of Wonder


Photographs

of the Himalayan Mountain Region

by Jeff Botz

November 2nd - 30th

Using an 8 x 10 large format camera at altitudes often exceeding 20,000 feet, photographer Jeff Botz captures the splendor of the Himalayan mountains and surrounds. His black and white, silver gelatin prints, in the style of Ansel Adams, are majestic and moving.

For the month of December Ambleside Gallery presents the works of three artists: Deborah Squier, Mark Henry and John Mac Kah, all dedicated to painting the Appalachian region that is their home. These artists collectively have spent over 60 years painting the rich and diverse terrain of the Southern Appalachians, along with the rivers, flora and fauna of these ancient mountains.  Day by day invasive development threatens to overwhelm and disrupt this ecosystem which is among the oldest in the world. For these artists there is little time to waste in arousing the awareness level necessary to preserve and protect this invaluable habitat for generations to come.

 

Deborah Squier describes her work as contemplative landscape and seeks to build connection between the viewer of her art and the natural world. Her paintings take you to the heart of connection with intimacy and directness.

Mark Henry describes his paintings as timeless with a focus on atmosphere and the poetic. He is attentive to the nuance of light at each moment in time with heart, mind and soul. All of his works are set in frames handcrafted by him to compliment the artwork.

John Mac Kah approaches his work as a Luminist letting the detail, light and atmosphere carry the viewer through his paintings in a truthful and seamless manner. He is a student and follower of the Hudson River School and founder of the Saints of Paint, a group dedicated to art and activism.

 

To summarize: “The works in this show demonstrate a coherency with the unity of all sentient beings as one organism in the tapestry of life. Its purpose is to serve and illuminate, with gratitude, the artists connection to the landscape as witnessed through the human eye, heart and hand. It is toward this end that we dedicate our abilities with humility and devotion.”

Remembering Leigh Rodenbough

                    August 4th - September 30th, 2017

 

Leigh was a superb painter, a deep thinker, a gentle human being and a dear friend.  For the months of August and September we have devoted the front room of the gallery to a collection of his pastels that represent some of the finest works to have come off his easel during the final years of his remarkable life.  We are grateful to Leigh's family for allowing us to continue to share his work with the world.

American Watercolor Society

 Traveling Exhibition

(Celebrating 150th Anniversary)

  Opening Reception:  Friday, May 12th from 6:00 – 9:00pm

           Exhibition dates: May 12th – July 15th, 2017

 The American Watercolor Society, based in New York City, is one of the oldest and most prestigious art societies in the world. Indeed, election to the Society as a Signature Member is one of the most sought-after honors in the painting world. AWS Membership comprises many of the greatest names in painting throughout the Society's history and includes (to name drop a few) the American impressionist Childe Hassam, regionalists Edward Hopper and Charles Burchfield, plus virtually every member of the important “California School” of watercolorists, and everyone in between, up to and including the late Andrew Wyeth.

AWS annual Exhibition is one of the world’s most revered watercolor exhibits. More than 1,200 artists from throughout the United States and 27 foreign countries submit their work to a panel of jurors chosen from Signature Members of the AWS. Of these submissions, 150 paintings are selected for the exhibition. Forty paintings from the show are selected for the Traveling Exhibition, which tours museums and galleries across the country during the next year.

Ambleside Gallery is honored to have been selected to be one out of only four venues in the country to host this year’s Traveling Exhibition.
