Maggie Mailer’s “The Balloonists”

Now - September 18
Rural Intelligence ArtsMaggie Mailer, The Balloonists, 2010, Oil on Canvas, 40 x 30”

In her fourth solo exhibition of new paintings here, Mailer draws on her experience last summer as the first resident artist at The Berkshire Museum of Pittsfield, the paintings in this show incorporate elements from the museum’s collection of 18th-century landscape and portrait paintings.  Portraying a post apocalyptic world, in which beings live above the earth suspended by balloons, distant threats loom in Mailer’s portraits of women and children, dreamy landscapes and romanticized views.
