The Edward Hopper House will be dedicating a Gallery in memory of Rev. Arthayer R Sanborn and his wife Ruth. During this show, selections will include memorabilia and art works chosen by Phil Sanborn that provide a broad overview of the Arthayer R Sanborn Hopper Collection Trust which had personal meaning to Arthayer and Ruth Sanborn – objects that have historic significance and help to tell the story of the Sanborn’s relationship with Edward and Jo Hopper.
Inventing worlds: Abstraction Painting byLeslie K. Price, Lorna Ritz, and Robert Straight,
Until April 7, 2013
The three painters in this exhibition all draw from nature using improvisational techniques, but the results are widely varied. Leslie K. Price sees nature as a metaphor for life: ‘I paint from some aspect of the natural world, and the uniqueness of the space, light, and color interacting with it.’ Lorna Ritz’s colourful abstractions ‘bring the landscape indoors. They become windows that peer deeply into space beyond their four edges.’ Robert Straight creates his ‘world’ that draws from aspects of contemporary life. While he uses maths and science as a basis for his constructed abstractions, he embraces improvisation in the execution.
Please note the gallery hours: Thursday–Sunday, 1–5 p.m. or by appointment. Admission is $5 adults, $3 Seniors; Free for members, students and children. Docent guided tours can be arranged for an additional fee.
