Gary Hoyle's Aspects of Nature

May 17 - June 13, 2021

Swan’s Island artist Gary Hoyle has a unique way of making water and oil work together to create paintings that look like Aerial view of landscapes from another world. These gorgeous paintings will be on view alongside his more representational landscape paintings, which share a beautiful muted and saturated pallete. We'll also be exhibiting some of Gary's realistic animal sculptures and a variety of his watercolors and drawings, many of which show a keen sense of humor. Gary Hoyle: Aspects of Nature opens on May 15, and we will celebrate Gary's work with a reception at our Spring Open House party, 12-3 pm on Sunday, May 17.
