Dorset Gallery to Host Danby Artist
Each of Ken Rush’s vibrant landscapes seem to contain a mystery – layers of meaning, interpretation and emotion can be found in the lavish layers of paint on the canvas. The images are inspired by, but are not depictions of, the landscapes Rush inhabits, emerging through the filter of the painter’s active imagination. His Danby studio and the surrounding hills and valleys influence the settings for one of his main subjects: the house as metaphor. The paintings are broad and deep enough to hold the viewer with their intensity and their restfulness alike. These paintings will be featured in a show titled ‘Layers’ at 3 Pears Gallery, located on the Green in Dorset Village, opening on Saturday, August 22, with a reception from 2 to 5:30 p.m., and running through September 21. Call 802-770-8820.
