PRESS RELEASE: Figurative Paintings Group Show at Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery Shelburne

Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery will be showing "Clothing Optional: Figurative Paintings by John Lawrence Hoag, Cameron Schmitz, David Smith, and Frank Woods", March 30-May 1, 2012. There will be an opening reception with the artists on Friday, April 13th, 6-8 p.m.
The four artists approach the representation of the figure in distinctly individual ways. Hoag's oils are heavy with emotion and psychological ambivalence. Schmitz' clothed figures of women and children have the dreamy atmosphere of the solitary spaces they inhabit. Smith's nudes and head studies have the freshness and immediacy of work done in close observation within a life drawing setting, while Woods' work down in the same setting reflects his interest in abstraction.
Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery is located at 86 Falls Road, in Shelburne Village. Hours are Tue-Fri 9:30-5:30, and Sat 10-5.
