Join us Saturday, May 22nd from 6-8pm, for the opening reception of Jonathan Small's 'Catching the Light' Enjoy complimentary adult refreshments and view the recent paintings of a talented local artist.
Jonathan Small has studied at the University of Colorado, The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Mass Art and the Rhode Island School of Art and Design. “The primary thing I focus on with every painting is to capture the play of light on the scene.” says Jonathan. “It could be the warm low angle light near sunrise or sunset, the harsh light of mid-day when shadows are reduced to a minimum, or the diffuse light of a cloudy or foggy day; in every situation there is something beautiful to observe in how light illuminates the landscape. The challenge of catching that particular light in mixtures of paint is what keeps me coming back to my easel.” In regard to his upcoming show in Middleboro, Jonathan states “The places shown in this exhibit include Maine, California, England, and locations in southern New England nearer to my home inRhode Island.”
This show runs from it's opening night through June 19. True Grit Art Gallery is located at 38 Center St in Middleboro, MA. Regular gallery hours are Tues 11-4, Wed thru Fri 10-5, and Sat 10-3.
