MAY EXHIBIT AT BUSTER LEVI GALLERY
Buster Levi Gallery, 121 Main Street, Cold Spring, is delighted to announce its May exhibit of paintings by two Japanese artists, Setsuya Kotani and Yoko Yoshimatsu: May 6 through May 22. There will be a reception for the artists when the show opens, on Friday May 6, from 6 PM to 8 PM. These are exceptional artists, masters of their craft and richly creative.
Yoshimatsu, who lives in a village near Osaka (Japan) when she is not visiting the United States, is an artist of eerie power. Her work, typically representing dream-like female figures, recalls in mood and finish two great artists of the French Symbolist period: Gustave Moreau and Odilon Redon. Yoshimatsu has in common with her exhibit partner, Kotani, her meticulous attention to brushwork, detail, and mood.
Kotani retired several years ago as a professor of painting and ceramics from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. His abstract canvasses are subtle poetries with a glaze-like finish, obliquely telling tales of human relationship. The 20th-century tradition of abstraction is alive and compelling in his work.
The Philipstown – Beacon region can be proud to have this remarkable exhibit at hand.
Don’t miss it.
