The Antoine Dutot Gallery and Museum in Delaware, PA held an Artist’s Reception on Friday July 30th featuring the paintings of Peter Salmon in an Exhibition titled, “New Wine in Old Bottle.” Light guitar music filled the room while the many who attended gazed upon the simple work displaying light colors matching the mood of the music. The work was perfect for those who like just plain upfront simple art without any unnecessary flourishes.
This is a reflection of the artist’s stated desire to create works honoring the past. Although they were recently painted, the stylings and subjects are reminiscent of an earlier time in human existence where the modern day obsession to possess what is new was simply focused on holding dear all that is familiar and close to one’s heart. The work aptly placed the new aroma of the artist’s wine into an old bottle molded by the simple desires of the past therefore enhancing its taste and texture. What a delightful glass those who attended the reception shared. You’ll find more photographs taken during the reception in The Forwardian Arts Society Dutot 2010 Gallery at www,myspace.com/forwardian_arts.
The Exhibition continues until August 15th. The next Artist’s Reception will feature the works of Don Manza and Sherwood Samet beginning at 7pm on Friday August 20th. This Exhibition will continue until September 5th.
