Bernay Fine Art
Bernay Fine Art is pleased to present a summer exhibition of fourteen still life paintings by Berkshire artist Janet Rickus. The show will run from July 18 – Aug. 15 at their Great Barrington gallery.
This exhibition of recent works is co-curated by Bernay Fine Art and Gallery Henoch of New York City. Rickus’ long career has included significant shows at both galleries, as well as two museum retrospectives. In 2006, she was honored with the Massachusetts Cultural Council Award for painting. Her works are represented in major collections throughout the United States and abroad.
In her meticulous still lifes, Rickus combines vibrant arrangements contrasted against muted gray backgrounds. Although her subjects derive from the everyday, ceramic dishes and handpicked fruits and vegetables are elevated through Rickus’ emphasis on their color and form. Their purposeful orientations in her compositions are intended to subtly evoke impressions of human relationships.
A full preview of the exhibition is available in the online catalogue.
