Press release from Reynolds Fine Art

Reynolds Fine Art is pleased to present Vista: A Study of the Land. This group exhibition will feature the work of nine national artists whose approach to landscape paintings are as diverse as their subject. Exhibiting artists are Peter Roux, Bradford Johnson, Gregory Kammerer, Sean Thomas, Margot Nimiroski, Scott Duce, Robert Reynolds, Kyle Andrew Philips and Christie Scheele.

Peter Roux: "The Mysteries No. 26"

Vista is a glimpse of nature as translated through the eyes and hands of nine unique artists. Tranquil, ethereal landscapes are juxtaposed with ones that show signs of a vigorous, ever changing world. While one artist may employ the practice of landscape painting as a retreat from modern life, to stand in awe of natural beauty and recall the ideologies of past masters of the genre, another artist looks at man's imprint on the land and embraces both the tension and harmony created. Each scene, however, captures obsession and memory in paint.

In technique, each artist's approach varies just as much as the land's terrain. Vista is composed of minimalist to highly obscured views of the world. A landscape may be recreated through a very controlled, pensive hand, or its atmosphere may be captured through embracing its unpredictable nature. Whether the landscape is used as the subject or simply as vehicle through which to explore the medium of painting, each image in this exhibition is sure to capture the viewer with its beauty and mystery. Not only are we invited to view the same landscape as the artists who painted it, but also to experience the same place in our own, individual way.

This opening is free and open to the public, and will coincide with the Ninth Square first Friday event, "ShineOn9."
