A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce New Paintings, an exhibition of works on paper by artist Barbara Grinell, which will be on view in Gallery III from October 15 – November 15, 2015.
Barbara Grinell, a long time member and Alumnae Artist of A.I.R. Gallery, will be showing works on large pieces of paper in gouache, pastel, charcoal, and pigment. The work reflects her life in the mountains of the Catskills and now on the high desert of Taos, New Mexico.
Though reflecting the land around her, these paintings are not traditional landscapes. In these works the shapes are simplified and the colors subtle. Together, they reflect the larger world of natural forces and the mystery that sustains it all. One can see the gesture of the artist’s hand humanizing and softening the haunting beauty, light, and power of the universe.
Barbara Grinell is a painter and printmaker who has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions including “Women Printmakers” Colgate University Gallery, Hamilton, NY, “From Personal Experience” New Zone Gallery, Eugene, OR, and “Currants” San Francisco, CA. Grinell has a Masters in painting and printmaking from New York University, and was a Fulbright Fellow, Artist–at–Large, at Kookim University, Seoul, Korea.
