Reception and Gallery Talk: Wed. Oct 19 11-1:00pm - gallery talk begins at noon
The paintings in Hyperopia are inspired by scenes of Western Massachusetts that include Mt. Sugarloaf, the Quabbin Reservoir, and the Connecticut River. The paintings play with the notion of time of day, distance, and other factors that impact our perception of the landscape.
As Hyperopia suggests: Things seen up close may appear indecipherable, and may only be understood viewed from a distance.
