Island, 13 x 12
Gallery North Star presents a solo show of new oil paintings by artist James Urbaska. Inspired by the landscapes of New England and particularly the Connecticut River Valley, James Urbaska's paintings chronicle the tranquility of the rural experience. In this body of new work, Urbaska continues to explore the conversations between light and shadow, land and water and sky. The luminescence flowing out of his canvases enhances the drama inherent in the ever evolving Vermont landscape. Using a heightened sense of realism, he defines our experiences through his exquisite images.
