Please join us for the opening reception of new paintings by Johnson, Vermont based artist Joseph Salerno. FOREST RECOLLECTION, a group of fifty paintings created over the past three years, allow a viewer to behold a subtle yet profound rumination on landscape and how the act of looking and creation weave and bob over time. Haunting, resonant Vermont forests, drenched in mist or glowing with ethereal light, wind an elegant trail through the gallery. Each piece adds a soft, unique voice to the observation of natural landscape, allowing a viewer to pull close to intricate details in an individual work while also regarding the series from a wider lens, absorbing landscape as a growing collection of facets and subtleties.

FOREST RECOLLECTION is an exhibition that wanders into memory with paint used as both a cloak and a window. Moving through these works calls to painting's ability to live on the edges of abstraction and representation, like watching a film set to slow motion or paused for a moment in soft focus. The resounding feeling is one of landscape as a place that relates to the outside world yet also exists in the depths of our most essential thoughts. Landscape painting becomes recalled space, a bridge between its place in the world and the place it lives in our minds. A reception for FOREST RECOLLECTION will be held Saturday, September 15 from 3pm-6pm with an artist talk at 4pm. The exhibition will be on view through October 28.
