I am delighted to announce that Al Miner, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, selected my painting, "Lane House, Twilight," from nearly 800 nationwide entries for the exhibition, "Works on Paper," at the South Shore Art Center. The exhibition runs from October 24 through December 21. A public reception will be held on Friday, October 24 from 6-8PM.
This painting depicts the home of the great nineteenth-century American artist, Fitz Henry Lane, who lived and worked in Gloucester and became known for his landscape paintings of subjects along the entire eastern coast of North America. From this house, which is situated on a high knoll, Lane often made drawings and paintings of buildings and ships around Gloucester harbor.
