Richard Powers: Sea & Sky
Opening Reception Saturday, September 27 2014 5-9PM
Baldwin Hill Art & Framing is once again proud to host works by the 20th century American artist Richard M. Powers. Best known for his surrealistic science-ficiton book covers, Powers’ eclectic output also included children’s books, political cartoons, surreal humor, and fine art. The current exhibit–our fourth of his work –features fine art works inspired by seascapes and skylines from around the world.
Sea and sky were important influences on many of Powers’ works such as the surreal landscapes of his science fiction illustrations as well as many of his fine art works. Previous shows included such works as Rehoboth Beach, Port Antonio After The Storm, and Coral Shoals: Haiti.
Our newest exhibit, opening September 27, 2014 features a number of additional works from the estate. Some of these have never been shown before while others have not been seen in decades. Many feature a bright blue palette that is not seen in his other works.
Please join us for the opening reception Saturday, September 27 from 5-9PM at our gallery at 8 Court Street, Natick, MA. Refreshments will be provided and a member of the Powers family will be there to answer questions and tell stories!
Can’t make the reception? These works will remain on display through October 17 for your viewing pleasure!
