CENTER SANDWICH — Kathi Smith and B Millner will each be speaking about their solo exhibits of their paintings at Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery on Wednesday, August 7.
Smith, originally from Maine, lives in Holderness and is an adjunct faculty member at Plymouth State University. Millner spends his summers in Maine but also visits Squam Lake each August. Millner's work is inspired by the play of light includes a variety of abandoned structures found around New England. Both a sculptor and a painter, Millner's realism is precise. The contrast of his exceptional detail to flat cloudless skies is both captivating and engaging.
Smith thrives on "making order out of complicated spaces' which almost always include a part of a house, a view from a window, or sideporch as seen through a thicket of branches. Her surfaces are about texture. The canvases are worked and worked again, scratched, scraped and rubbed. Rich color and marks complete the process. The result is an intimate and refreshing approach to landscape.
Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery is located at 69 Maple Street in Center Sandwich. Gallery hours are from 10 to 5 Monday through Saturday and 12 to 5 on Sunday. For more information visit patricialaddcarega.com or call 284 7728.
