September 28 - November 11, 2012

Join us on November 11th 2-4pm for Brunch with Marie Danielle Leblanc

Poetic Landscapes

This Fall, join us as we retreat into the Poetic Landscapes featuring Canadian artist, Marie Danielle Leblanc and Syracuse Artist, Sharon Gordon. We'll be featuring new works by both artists.

Marie Danielle's saturated palettes bring new life to the sea, land and sky. And we'll be transported to timeless landscapes - both real inspired by her travels and imaged.

During her travels, she likes to write down her thoughts, make a note of the weather or the name of a place, take pictures and collect images. It is through her travels that she captures landscapes that stretch into the vista.

In Sharon Gordon's landscapes, you can feel her deep connection and passion for the ever-changing nature of large bodies of water, and the mystery and promise of the horizon. The view imposes a presence, a meter, balancing human scale and condition as a piece of a larger perspective.

According to Sharon, "My current work is intended to capture and transport the viewer into a segment of a larger landscape that may be seemingly ambiguous, yet familiar. The paintings provide an opportunity to wander through passages exploring one’s whereabouts, recalling moments of time and space that may have been visited before."

She indirectly draws inspiration from some of the masters of landscape painting including the Hudson River School artists, J. M. W. Turner and Emilio Sánchez Perrier.
