Longing for spring? Through March, the Geary Gallery of Darien proudly presents “Celebrating Spring: The Florals of Judith Carbine” featuring the magnificent floral and landscape Plein Air oil paintings of Vermont native, Judith Carbine. Her exhibit runs March 1–31 at the Geary Gallery located at 576 Boston Post Road in Darien.
For more than twenty years, Judith Carbine has captured the grandeur of the New England landscape and the beauty of spring and summer with her engaging Plein Air oil paintings. Some of her trademark subjects include the Cape Cod shoreline, inspirational gardens of Connecticut, and rolling fields of her home state of Vermont.
“Painting outdoors is an exciting and refreshing visual adventure. The challenge is to capture the splendor of nature with every painting,” said Ms. Carbine, who varies her palette with each location. “New England has some of the most magnificent landscapes in the country, and it’s an endless source of inspiration for me,” she explained.
A self-taught artist, Judith Carbine was greatly influenced by French and American Impressionism, and using both paint and surface to convey her visual experience of the subject. Her painting is made through the devices of composition, color and light.
“Judith is one of the area’s most celebrated artists and many of her previous exhibits have completely sold out,” said Tom Geary, owner of the Geary Gallery. “She continues to receive widespread acclaim for beautifully blended colors and a notable talent for capturing the nuances of New England. This exhibit is a collection of Judith’s finest works to date, and we’re happy to be bringing it to our Fairfield County community.”
Ms. Carbine continues to receive regional recognition and has received Best in Show awards from both the Chester (VT) Art Guild and the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council (NY). Her artwork has been profiled in American Artist magazine, and has been published in the books The Zen of Creative Painting and Strengthen Your Paintings with Dynamic Composition.
The Judith Carbine exhibit runs from March 1–31, and her paintings are available for acquisition. All are welcome, and admission is free.
