New exhibit at Bunny Fain Gallery focuses on light, color

Posted

BARRINGTON – Temple Habonim hosted a wine and cheese reception on Sept. 8 to mark the opening of a new exhibit at The Bunny Fain Gallery. The show, which continues through Oct. 31, features three New England artists in different mediums. Their work explores the connection between light and color and maximizes its visual impact. 

Award-winning artist Richard Harrington paints abstracts on canvas, watercolor paper and print paper.  His paintings in the show explore shape, form, line and color and are an outgrowth of his more realistic paintings, which focus on weather, mood, light, time of day, season and atmosphere.   

Artist Brooke Lambert uses textured plates formed with mesh and fabric to create printed images, called collagraphs, which she then paints. Shown around the Boston area, her Sea Changes prints are evocative of ocean creatures and water. Through the sculptural quality of the print process and the range of colors, the vibrant prints draw the viewer in for closer inspection and reflection.

Through her camera lens, photographer Barbara DeCesare captures the beauty of the many bodies of water in Rhode Island.  As a native of the state, she photographs everything from lobster boats in Galilee to little-known waterfalls in East Greenwich. 

The Bunny Fain Gallery at Temple Habonim is located at 165 New Meadow Rd., in Barrington.  Gallery hours are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 1-4 p.m., Fridays 9 a.m.-1 p.m., and by appointment.
