  • David Dunlop
    Natural Rhythms
    June 1- July 7
    Opening Reception
    June 1, 5-8 pm

    SUSAN POWELL FINE ART is pleased to present David Dunlop’s new solo show, “Natural Rhythms,” June 1 to July 7, 2018, opening Friday, June 1, with a reception from 5 to 8pm to meet the artist. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

    DAVID DUNLOP is a modern-day old master whose luminous landscapes draw from both Renaissance techniques and contemporary science. He is an Artist, Teacher, Lecturer and Emmy Award Winning television host and writer of the PBS Series entitled, “Landscapes through Time with David Dunlop.” David’s reputation as a painter who combines artistic skill, knowledge and enthusiasm, prompted the Metropolitan Museum of Art to invite him to lecture on 4000 years of landscape painting. His paintings have been shown internationally and are held in the collections of major corporations. David’s work has been reviewed extensively; he has been featured in The New York Times, and galleries and institutions have granted Dunlop solo shows since 1981.

    When asked what is essential to ​this new series of paintings, the artist says; “I reply with four qualities, Motion, Space, Color and Light. ​Whether within a speeding cityscape or a mediation on a shoreline, m​y aim is to convey a sensation of vibrating luminous energy. That energy, that feeling of stirring movement may be subtle or dramatic. Similarly, conveying a feeling for space can vary between depicting an enclosed intimate scene or an enormous expanse of landscape. But always these ​new works​​ allude to infinity. There is always a place for the mind’s eye to wander into deep and unseen places.”

  • Vincent Giarrano – City Life
    August ​5 – September 16

    Join us and meet the artist at an opening party on Friday, August 5, 5 – 8 pm

    The exhibit City Life, will run from Friday, August 5 to Friday, September 16. Vincent Giarrano is nationally acclaimed and has exhibited his paintings at the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., The National Portrait Gallery, London, England, and the Fort Wayne Museum of Fine Art, Contemporary Realism Biennial. In 2016, he received  a Third Place Award for his painting Tribeca at the American Museum of American Art, in Youngstown, Ohio.

    30 new oils by realist Vincent Giarrano highlight contemporary life in NYC with urban portraits of SoHo, the East Village, and Brooklyn.

    “The city has an energy, an edge, and a mood that I find fascinating.  I enjoy painting people from different walks of life; established professionals, socialites, young people just starting out. I love the gritty side of NYC, and enjoy the character of it; cast iron buildings, graffiti, messy interiors, etc. Those things speak about real life. The truth and sincerity of life is what I’m interested in painting,” says artist Vincent Giarrano.
