Une Finale Saisonnière à La Dutot

Photography by Paparazzi Paul.

In the twilight of an Autumnal night, The Antoine Dutot Museum and Gallery in Delaware Water Gap, PA held an Artists' Reception on Friday September 23rd for their exhibition featuring the work of Bev Abel, Lurene Nakielny, and Dawn Whatley. The distinctive style of the each individual artist contrasted well with one another while the entirety of the exhibit gently blended the images together until the show poured its essence upon the souls of those who attended. This creative elixir enhanced the enjoyment of the pieces and the conversations they inspired.

The oils and watercolors the artists employed in manifesting their interpretive visions lent themselves to the releasing of their unique properties to provide the hues each artist sought out to radiate their clarities and obscurities upon the subjects they captured. This allowed the viewer to access these same elements within themselves through a prism of vibrant colors and well constructed images in order to embrace all that is within one as well as what lies beyond. A sizable crowd attended the reception and their presence along with the the self examination the paintings inspired made it a wonderful night to spend with the arts.
