These are snap shots of the exhibiton taken during a walk through today. The Lamont Gallery space and lighting presents the works beautifully. The curators installed the works so the viewer is able to spend time with each painting as they move through the inviting space.
The quality of the work in this exhibition invites multiple visits. Each painting tells a wonderful story through color, scene, and narrative. After you have left the works seem like memories of journeys you have taken, but can't quite remember.
The exhibition is open until May 4th, 2013. For more information please visit the Lamont Gallery website.
The Banks Gallery is extremely proud to be an exhibition partner for Phillips Exeter Academy's Lamont Gallery exhibition "Luminous Terrain". This exhibition was organized with the intent to show works by the very best Hudson River School artists who painted in the White Mountains. These artists include Albert Bierstadt, Alfred Thompson Bricher, Thomas Cole, Sanford Robinson Gifford, Martin Johnson Heade, John Frederick Kensett, and William Sonntag.
The snow, ice and rain didn't keep anyone away from the piers today. The show was packed, and business was brisk in many of the boths we visited. Our good friends at Valarino Fine Art had sold over a dozen works by the end of the day with prices ranging from $14,000 to well over $100k.
There were stunning works by Morandi, Diebenkorn, Olitski, Motherwell, Park, and Burchfield. Get to the show if you can!
In 1913 the "International Exhibition of Modern Art" was held at the 69th Regiment Armory, from February 17 until March 15. This exhibition was the introduction of Modernism in America and changed the course of American Art forever. Iconic works by Picasso, Matisse, and Duchamp were on display and soon found they're way into American Museum collections.
One hundred years later we are days away from the 2013 Armory Show, which is now held on piers 92 and 94 in New York City. We hope to see all of our friends and colleagues at the show this year.

‘Lois Dodd: Catching the Light,’ at Portland Museum of Art in Maine is a retrospective for a painter who has largely been over looked for her entire career. Now in her 80's this modest exhibition offers a chance to see the work of one of America's greatest living painters. On view till April 7th, 2013.
