We are very pleased with our current show, In Rhythm, featuring the paintings of GC Myers. He started his career here at the West End Gallery and has built an enthusiastic following here, his work the subject of many popular solo shows over the 17 years he has shown here. We are pleased to announce that his first museum exhibition, Internal Landscapes: The Paintings of GC Myers, has officially opened at the prestigious Fenimore Art Museum in lovely Cooperstown, NY. The exhibit hangs until the end of the year, December 31. It’s a select group of mostly larger paintings from the last few years along with a few very early small pieces that show the beginning stages of the evolution of Myers’ work. One of the highlights is the first public showing of the piece shown here, The Internal Landscape. It is a very large painting, measuring 54″ high by 84″ wide. This large scale gives it a real presence in any space.
If you can make it to the Fenimore in the next month, the exhibit hanging in the adjacent gallery is American Impressionism: Paintings of Light and Life, which is a grand collection of paintings from the likes of Mary Cassatt, Childe Hassam and William Merritt Chase. And if you’re looking for real star power, there’s even a piece from one of the most influential Impressionists, Claude Monet. Plus there are several other great exhibits not to mention the incredible Thaw Collection of American Indian Art, which is worth the trip on its own. On November 7, Myers will be giving a talk on show after a luncheon, from 12:30 until 2:30, as part of the museum’s Food For Thought lecture series.
Our show of Myers’ work, In Rhythm, hangs for two more weeks,ending on August 31 . We hope you can make both shows!
