The Alva de Mars Megan Chapel Art Center at Saint Anselm College presents Reflections of the Day, an exhibition of landscapes by contemporary artist Sandy Wadlington, with an opening reception on Thurs., Sept. 26, 6 - 8 p.m.
As a New England-based artist with formidable artistic roots (she is a descendant of the pioneer American landscape painter Alvan Fisher), Wadlington has marked her own path with the hands-on media of pastel, caran d'ache, and color woodcuts. Suffused with light and a quality of naturalism, her works are faithful to the American landscape tradition. Modernist in their patterned simplicity, they also capture the sensations of passing moments.
This exhibition, available Sept. 27 - Dec. 7, is the third in a series of landscape exhibitions the Chapel Art Center has presented, beginning in fall 2011 with the modern New England-based painter Charles Curtis Allen in Hills in Echo, and continuing with contemporary painter Lauren Sansaricq's Hudson-River School style landscapes in The Glimmer of Light in fall 2012.
The gallery has organized several programs and events to accompany the exhibition, including a special lecture with curator Nancy E. Green from the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University on Thurs., Nov. 14 at 4 p.m.
