From July 6 to September 1 Nancy Hoffman will show works of gardens, flowers, nature in abundance as well as abstractions that suggest the efflorescence of summer in their green glowing palette. Included in the exhibition is a 1996 Carolyn Brady watercolor of one of the famous English gardens,Hestercombe.
A monumental depiction of the entry gate enticing the viewer into the richness of nature that has made Hestercombe one of the most visited English gardens. A 1993 David Bierk is a lushly painted oil of blossoming cherry trees celebrating the beginning of summer. Joseph Raffael’s new watercolor Peony for Reuben is a peony bud about to blossom with water droplets glistening on its bulbous form, green leaves, the color of summer heat, surround the fuschsia bud.
Linda Mieko Allen’s Figmenta XIII feels like lazy days of summer with accents of orange, yellow, fuchsia, blue on a green ground that ranges from bright light green to brighter as if bathed in summer sun.
