The View From Here: Local Landscapes

October 1 @ 9:00 am - December 27 @ 4:00 pm

The Gallery at River Arts Presents: 

The View From Here: Local Landscapes

By Jennifer Hubbard

October 1 – December 27, 2019

“The View From Here: Local Landscapes” will be on exhibit in the Gallery at River Arts October 1-December 27, 2019. A reception and artist talk will be held on Thursday, November 14th from 5-7pm. Free admission and refreshments, cash bar. 

Jennifer Hubbard’s oil paintings feature scenes from Lamoille and Orleans counties, and capture barns and agricultural subjects in the vivid illumination of late afternoon light. In some paintings, she tweaks her color palette to add a contemporary, surreal twist on traditional rural landscape painting. The resulting paintings merge realistic, recognizable scenes with a touch of painterly abstraction.

Jennifer Hubbard grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, where she studied painting and drawing at the Mitchell School of Fine Arts, and Maryland Institute, College of Art. She moved to Vermont in 2009.

“My work has always been primarily focussed on portraiture. When I moved to Vermont, where the landscape is such a powerful influence on daily life, I decided to move my subjects outside, into the environment. I was interested in capturing the interaction between people and the outdoors, particularly as the seasons change.”  Hubbard gradually started replacing figures with barns and other architectural elements. The resulting paintings bring to mind both Impressionism and Photorealism, and offer a contemporary perspective of the people and landscapes of Vermont.
