New exhibit spotlights sheep paintings
MIDDLEBURY — For the past 12 years, artist Carolyn Letvin has been engaged in a dialogue with sheep, with them becoming her primary source of imagery. She reasons that sheep are often one of the first images presented in life, between nursery rhymes, children’s stories and nursery room motifs, creating formative visual experiences. Perhaps, she muses, we count sheep our whole lives?
Edgewater Gallery in Middlebury formally opened “Keep Counting Sheep,” a featured exhibition of Carolyn Letvin’s newest sheep paintings, on Friday, Nov. 15, as part of its fourth birthday celebration. Having eliminated an identifiable background from this new body collection, paint application, texture, and color are fully explored, while the flat background allows the sheep’s composition to present itself first.
Edgewater Gallery is at 1 Mill St. “Keep Counting Sheep” runs through Nov. 30. For more information call (802) 458-0098, email shawn[email protected], or visit www.edgewatergallery-vt.com.
