Hope & Feathers Framing and Gallery hosts Treescapes, new paintings by Easthampton artist Lynne Adams, June 2 through July 2.

This body of work represents an on-going exploration of trees. As a landscape painter, Lynne finds trees to be the most visually compelling elements of a scene. However, there is more to it than the tree’s beautiful aesthetic; for her they have an important spiritual power. Trees are healing. She goes to the woods, her sanctuary, when she seeks solace, the way some might go to church.

Lynne explains:

“I am drawn to trees because they provide an inexhaustible resource for the construction of paintings. With their textures, rhythms, and harmony of structure, they possess all the perfect elements that inspire me to paint. Through the use of exuberant brushstrokes, bright fresh color, and bold lines, I am able to celebrate their inherent beauty. 

These new paintings demonstrate exciting qualities I’ve witnessed in trees: the rainbow of colors of their leaves, buds and blossoms in all the seasons; the shadow patterns they cast on snow; their undulating lines reflecting in water; the way their silhouettes frame a winter sunset creating a stained glass effect; the feeling of light squishing through their leaves; and their intricate network of branches.”

An opening reception will be held on Thursday, June 2, in conjunction with Amherst Art Walk, from 5pm to 8pm. An artist reception will follow on Friday, June 24, from 6:30pm to 8pm.
