PEOPLE AND PLACES
Original Exhibit Dates: April 5 to May 7, 2011
In our eighteenth exhibit, the gallery introduced a very talented painter from South Carolina, Harriet Marshall Goode, and welcomed back sculptors Leila Walker and Jim Krieger, in addition to honoring the one-year anniversary of the wondrous Nicolas Carone's visit to Sanibel with a selection of his landscapes.
The remarkable work in this exhibit featured the figure and landscape in interesting combinations, serving as a kind of travelogue by and through which we were allowed to visit the expressive and expansive inner and outer worlds of these four amazing artists.
Harriet Marshall Goode's ethereal paintings place women in a symbolic and metaphysical landscape, while Leila Walker's wire sculptures are filled with odd, unusual bits, providing each with a symbolic inner landscape.
Jim Krieger created a tribute to Japanese artist Hokusai with his beautiful work on copper and lead featuring Mt. Fuji and figures in grass.
The late Nicolas Carone always loved painting the figure, and even in his spacious landscapes, they appear.
