This weekend is the last chance you have to see one of the Foosaner Art Museum’s best exhibitions — “Luminous Landscapes: Paintings by Larry Leach.”
The museum galleries shine with this sublime show which highlights Mr. Leach’s fine skill, thrilling aesthetic and deep talent. The exhibit is rather a reverie on nature, filled with the artist’s deep respect for unspoiled, wild nature.
The artist, who lives in rural Georgia, paints in his large studio adjacent to the home he shares with wife Sheila Stewart Leach, our former museum director.
It’s a marvelous spot, filled to the literal rafters with his art and that of his wife, who works in yarn. The couple also has a large modern kitchen and a large pantry filled with jars of goodies from their many fruit trees and their extensive vegetable garden.
And all about is that sophisticated, beautiful, resonating art. The best of both worlds.
P.S. Go tonight from 5:30 to 7:30 for free admission during the First Friday Art Walk along Highland Avenue.
