Paintings by Caren Hyde, Laura Radwell and Sandy Walsh

February 13, 2016 - February 14, 2016 - All Day at

Hosmer Gallery at Forbes Library, 20 West St, Northampton

Reception: Saturday February 13, 2-4 PM

Sandy Walsh works from both nature and imagination to create oil paintings from floral to landscape to abstract. She is a Northampton native and a lifelong artist and teacher of painting.

Caren Hyde shows recent landscape paintings that focus on “expressing an emotional quality of landscape which lies within the realm of ambiguity and the tensions that can be created between opposites such as reality and dream, beauty and the underlying forces of darkness; between the living and the dead, the familiar and the strange.”

Laura Radwell, a designer in many media including digital, returns to painting for these layered, textured landscapes of the imagination. “A long time ago I was a representational painter, working ‘from the outside in.’ Now I paint landscapes ‘from the inside out.’”
