Autumnal Tints Opens

Autumnal Tints will be Still Point Art Gallery's featured exhibition from August 31 through December 1, 2009. The idea for this exhibition was inspired by Henry David Thoreau's essay of the same name.

"I believe that all leaves, even grasses and mosses, acquire brighter colors just before their fall. When you come to observe faithfully the changes of each humblest plant, you find that each has, sooner or later, its peculiar autumnal tint." --Henry David Thoreau, Autumnal Tints

Karlsberg Anderson Math Santerre Moores

This exhibition, though, is not solely about a time of year. It is about color...the plush, sometimes fiery, sometimes soothing and subtle, colors of autumn. The artists whose works are shown here seem passionate about color. Through paintings, photographs, ceramic, and mixed media pieces, artists have indeed shown both the fiery and the subtle colors of autumn.

This exhibition is truly a treat to be enjoyed slowly. On one page you will see lively, bright colors that will warm your heart and put a smile on your face, while on another page you will see deep, rich colors that feel like velvet to the eye. On another page the colors seem simple and weightless, like a slight autumn breeze. Move to another page, and the colors explode into reds, oranges, yellows, purples, and greens. There are so many ways to explore autumnal tints.
