Lewis Bryden | A River by the Season June 1 to June 30, 2020

Artist’s reception Friday June 8, 2020, 6-8pm in conjunction with Northampton’s Arts Night Out.

Stay tuned for more information on this series!


On my floating studio in the past two years I have concentrated on plein air river painting. The thing that struck me was how changed the river was with the passing of the seasons. Even a couple of weeks could make a difference. I’ve gone back to the same spot and same weather conditions only a dozen days later and found the colors of the foliage and atmosphere had subtly changed. Eventually this became the theme for the show— if only we could be aware of the almost daily changes in color of the world around us!   – Lewis Bryden

Exhibition in conjunction with a corresponding show, Summer Idylls at the View Arts Center in Old Forge, NY, running from June 6, to August 2, 2020 and featuring a series of figurative paintings.  You can see some of that series on our web site here.
