Exhibition: Coast to Coast: American Art Colonies Revisited

Exhibition Information

On exhibition November 16, 2023 - January 11, 2024

Vose Galleries is pleased to present our fourth exhibition of Donald Demers’ work, Coast to Coast: American Art Colonies Revisited. His masterful approach to painting is revealed in a series of plein air transcriptions of sites that have inspired artists for generations. From the coastal colonies and inland retreats of New England to the Pacific shores at Laguna Beach, he embraces the unique qualities of each setting and seeks to capture the atmosphere and mood of his firsthand experience, while being cognizant of their role in art history:

“I cannot help but think and feel about what those nights at the Florence Griswold House must have been like…or Edgar Payne and William Wendt on Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna, and somewhere nearby, Steinbeck is writing…I have such a romantic preoccupation with that part of it.”
