    Byways exhibit

    Explore "Byways" as adventures in seeing the landscape through the eyes of the painter and photographer: driving along a country road bisected by lines and sharp curves, grey asphalt relieved by bunchgrass and lines of distant cottonwoods; walking beside calm canal waters on leaf-strewn paths under sycamores; finding the shade-dappled winding way through woods, not knowing what's around the bend; making a beaten path through tall grass to the cliff’s edge. In these paintings, the journey is as important as the destination.

    Michael Ferguson: Electric

    An exhibition of Michael Ferguson's vibrant landscape paintings heralds the new year at Marcia Burtt Gallery. Pulsating with color, Ferguson's work has an electric energy that illuminates our botanical world.

    The Washington State-based painter depicts the land, ocean, and flora of the Pacific Northwest with textured acrylic and oil. Layered colors form a speckled surface. Turquoise, magenta, and lime green strokes combine to create sea and sky. The result is a palpable atmosphere of light and color filtered through sun-drenched fog.

    Patricia Doyle: sprezzatura exhibition

    Patricia Doyle and gallery artists explore the landscape. Practiced, yet effortless — sprezzatura.

    Single strokes of paint build roofs on houses and populate flocks of birds on the shore. A stripe of color demarcates a table edge or an ocean horizon. A few flicks from a brush become shrubs and trees, washes of paint create entire mountainsides.

    What unites these paintings is repeated experimentation with material and tools to make the complicated look easy, and the complex look simple.
