Nice paint at the Providence Art Club

I caught a couple of good shows yesterday at the Providence Art Club. I went to see an old RISD teacher of mine Dean Richardson's work. I enjoyed the lushness of the paint, although I found the spirit of them as opaque as he seemed to me, a 21 year old transfer student, as a teacher.
In the other gallery (in the old art supply store "Oakes on the Hill" where I spent many days trying to earn my way back to art school) I was taken with the work of Melissa Brown.

I was not surprised to see by her statement that her images are based on nature, as I think the best abstractions are. Both through May 16th.
