PRESS RELEASE: A Splash of Color at The Lazy Pear Gallery

The Lazy Pear Gallery is proud to present the work of Vermont artists Steven Goodman and Wendy James in the show, “A Splash of Color,” September 23 through November 15. This show features two artists that use vibrant colors sparingly but with powerful effect. The technique helps these artists to create paintings that are simultaneously eye-catching and calming. In addition, the show includes Wendy James' black and white photomontages. In these images Wendy combines multiple photographs to create mysterious, surrealistic, and humorous senarios that force the viewer to reconcile an instant in time that initially looks realistic but, on closer inspection, is obviously impossible.

The Lazy Pear Gallery will host an artist reception on Friday, September 25, from 4 pm to 8 pm, during the Montpelier Art Walk to give the public an opportunity to meet the artists and learn more about their work. The Lazy Pear Gallery is located at 154 Main Street, Montpelier, VT. It has off-street parking and is ADA accessible. Additional information about the gallery and Wendy James’ work can be found at or by calling (802) 223-7680.
