Director's Tour: Reflections of the Day
Start Date: 10/26/2013Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Date: 10/26/2013

Event Description:
Iain MacLellan, O.S.B., director of the Chapel Art Center, will lead a walking tour for an intimate look at the works of Sandy Wadlington. The tour will include a commentary on the Chapel Art Center's 19th century landscape Fisherman by a River by Alvan Fisher, as part of the coinciding exhibition Influence and Significance, Selections from the Permanent Collection.

As a New England-based artist with formidable artistic roots (she is a descendant of the pioneer American landscape painter Alvan Fisher), Wadlington has marked her own path with the hands-on media of pastel, caran d'ache, and color woodcuts.

Her versatility makes for a remarkable range of visual effects. Suffused with light and a quality of naturalism, her works are utterly faithful to the American landscape tradition. Modernist in their patterned simplicity, they also capture the stirring sensations of passing moments. Always gentle and serene, they bear the watchfulness of an artist at home with the vast beauty of her surroundings.

This is the third in a series of landscape exhibitions covering a range of traditions and styles, which has allowed us to explore the enduring traditions as well as the more innovative practices associated with American landscape painting. Reflections of the Day presents a most pleasing selection of purely contemporary scenes, affirming the ever-present appeal of the artist's point of view.

Sandy Wadlington is represented by McGowan Fine Art, Concord, New Hampshire.
