The Greater Binghamton community is cordially invited to an opening reception of the exhibit “Richard B. Henry: en plein air and studio paintings” from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4, in the Gallery @ SUNY Broome, located on the first floor of the campus library. Light refreshments will be served.
The exhibit will be on view from Sept. 23 through Oct. 20, 2018, and the gallery hours are Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 3 to 7 p.m.
This exhibition will showcase a cross-section of original oil-on-canvas paintings that were created over the past few years both on location, in the open air of the landscape and within the studio. The subjects include classical still life paintings of inanimate objects that possess personal meaning to the artist, along with landscape and architectural impressions that express the natural beauty connected with a particular season.
Richard Henry has often been described by his peers as a “Painter’s Painter,” and is deeply inspired by the long traditional of classical observational oil painting as an expressive medium and strives to reveal the innate beauty of Mother Nature through exploring a particular type of atmospheric space and its interaction with fleeting light on form.
