The Bay of Color
Art in the window display of the Susan Calloway Gallery in Georgetown always makes me hit my brakes!
When driving down to M Street last night I saw an ocean or more precisely a bay of color: two stunning paintings by Stephen Day representing the colors of the Chesapeake Bay. It is so realistic yet abstract! – one would say about Day’s representations of color, mood and seasons of the Chesapeake area. And it is such a new and refreshing way of portraying the Bay. Interestingly… the show reminds me of the recent presentation of the Washington Color School at the Corcoran Gallery of Art – especially the paintings by Gene Davis. See my post below.
