Representational Paintings at Carrie Haddad
Tracy Helgeson, Trees Converge, 2008, oil on birch panel
A summer exhibition featuring the work of four representational painters, Paul Abrams, Richard Britell, Tracy Helgeson and Carrie Waldman, opens this weekend.
Paul Abrams subject is the Hudson River, but his beautiful and mysterious images seem inspired by Constable and Turner. Richard Britell’s new work revolves around large, dreamy cityscapes that flirt with abstraction. Tracy Helgeson combines dark and colorful under-painting with surface glazing in her recent landscapes. Carrie Waldman, who works in egg tempera, offers an insect’s-eye view of the world in her intense floral and foliage paintings in which flowers are at once ultra-realistic and fantastical.
Carrie Haddad Gallery, 622 Warren Street; 518.828.1915
Reception: Saturday May 31, 6 - 8
Thursday – Tuesday 11 - 5:00
