Just got back from seeing the most stunning show I have seen in a long time. I am still exhilarated from this unbeliveably beautiful show at the Michener Museum in Doylestown, PA. It is called "The Painterly Voice" and it features the Buck's County Pennsylvania Impressionist Painters. This comprehensive show will knock your socks off as well as break your heart and blow your mind. Yes, I am moved. I was so enthralled by the scope of the work and even though there was much stylistic variety, there was a common theme - the Pennsylvania landscape. Huge canvasses that filled wall after wall of these dedicated Pennsylvania Impressionist whose colors either leap out at you with intensity or call to you softly with their inner glow and the lush sensual paint beckons to be felt. I actually had the sensation of wanting to lick the snow! It is an extraordinary show and you must see it!
You can check out some of the images here but you can not possibly feel the immensity of the work until you see it and experience it firsthand. These are all very large canvasses and take up a huge visual space.
