Booksigning at artist's reception
Friday, October 12, 5 – 7 p.m.
at Edgewater Gallery at Middlebury Falls, 1 Mill Street, Middlebury
Edgewater at the Falls will be hosting an exhibition for featured artist Philip Frey in part of his show “Earth, Sky and Water.” Frey will also be releasing his book under the title Here and Now.
Here and Now, a newly released hardcover book by art critic Daniel Kany and art writer Carl Little explores the art historical references in Philip Frey’s work, traces the history of landscape painting in Maine, and contains beautiful reproductions of Frey’s work that highlight his vibrant originality . Little writes “His palette is strong and fresh, his approach painterly in a manner akin to Fairfield Porter and other devoted Plein Air painters.” Frey’s use of bold colors gives his work a contemporary feel while his brushy style is reminiscent of a more traditional landscape painter.
Here and Now will be available for purchase during this opening reception for Philip Frey’s solo exhibition at the Mill Street gallery.
Edgewater, in conjunction with the Vermont Book Shop, will host a book signing that evening. The artist will be on hand to sign copies and discuss his work.
