Palin’s stunning pastel landscapes reflect her belief that the world’s beauty is present in everything from the perfection of an insect to the majestic movement of clouds. Beginning by focusing on landscapes she found in Iceland and New England, she now spends time exploring and depicting the raw beauty she finds in the landscapes of the American West, including New Mexico, Utah, and Montana.
Meadowbrook Arts Camp
EMERGENCE/SEE (sponsored by Northampton Arts Council) is the inaugural show of the Meadowbrook Arts Camp. Envisioned by two residents of the Meadowbrook Housing Complex in Florence MA, the camp was founded on the belief that each person IS art. What we do with paint, clay, music, pen or dance is an extension of ourselves. The art works are conversations we have with our world and with each other. Each child who participated in the MAC had the opportunity to go on a journey into and through their own emerging “voice.” The paintings and photographs are vivid and vibrant, contemplative and connected.
Turn Towards the Living
“Anything you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” ~ Goethe
This is a show about living, about showing up boldly, unequivocally. It’s an exploration beyond what the eye can see in a landscape into what else lives there. It is about possibility, allowing subtle colors in nature to live boldly on paper.
