Sight and Site Landscapes
Anyone who wore glasses in grade school associates the phrase "4 Eyes" with an insulting expression that schoolyard bullies used. Nothing could be further from the truth for the artists who are featured in the landscape exhibition at Water Street Gallery.
The "spectacles" they wear bring a higher quality of vision and the sites they paint are reflective of the various sights they see. The rose colored glasses bring images that are filled with optimism as the artists who wear them see things around them as being better than they really are.
Sunglasses will be needed to filter the light filled and high energy of many of the paintings. Reading glasses are necessary to study the fine detail in a selection of delicate and intricate nature studies. Last but not least are 3-D glasses where the realism of carefully rendered images is almost photographic. Be prepared to experience an exhibit where spectacles are needed to view a "spectacular" collection of landscapes.
