MARILYN ORNER: "LOCAL"
SEPTEMBER 4 - 27, 2020
Hudson, NY – 510 Warren Street Gallery is pleased to present the second featured artist show of recent paintings by Marilyn Orner titled “Local.” The show runs from Friday, September 4th until Sunday, September 27th. The artist will be present to welcome viewers on Saturday, September 5th from 1 to 4 pm. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, there will not be a reception for the artist but the gallery is open with safety protocol in place. We welcome your visit to this very special exhibit.
The natural beauty of the Berkshires, where Orner resides, was the starting point for the paintings in this show which were begun well before the pandemic. The current restrictions have only deepened her appreciation for the place she calls home. These works resulted from vistas discovered on foot during long walks or hikes. Working from photographs taken on site, Orner paints in the studio. The photos taken capture moments; stopping time while also allowing her to fill the canvas with the color and emotions the scene evoked. In the words of William Blake, painter and poet, it has truly been a time “to see the world in a grain of sand, and heaven in a wildflower.”
Also on view at 510 Warren Street Gallery are works by Charles Benton, Linda Hertz, Trevor Hunter, Kate Knapp, John Lipkowitz, Nina Lipkowitz, Hannah Mandel, Paul Nueckel, Anna Oliver, Peggy Reeves, Ken Sahr, Doris Simon and H. David Stein.
