Romany Kramoris Gallery is pleased to present a group show featuring the artwork of Barbara Groot and Thomas Condon. The exhibit runs from August 16 through September 6, with a reception for the artists on Saturday, August 18, from 5-6:30 PM.
Barbara Groot grew up in Southern California with the sun and light illuminating the landscape. Now living and working in East Hampton, she finds the light on the East End equally special and energizing.
There is an elegance in her long sweeping line work, reminiscent of musical phrasing. Her brushstrokes appear as if from modern music scoring which channels emotional lightness and spatial freeness, uplifting the viewer. Her boundaries are loose or nonexistent, contributing to a breathless freedom.
The focus of Thomas Condon’s work reflects the New England town throughout the seasons. There is a sense of alienation, a moodiness. His streets are devoid of human activity. Condon is especially interested in the play of shadow and light in his work.
Romany Kramoris Gallery is open 7 days a week from 10 AM to 7 PM, later weekend nights. Hours may vary, please call ahead.
