Reception for the artists: Saturday, April 27, 5 – 7 PM
Theresa Fernald’s recent paintings explore images of domestic bliss, children at play, blue skies, tranquil waters and magnificent landscapes. But is there something else going on? Fernald’s paintings are tinged with a subtle (or sometimes not-so-subtle) menace. Have we lost respect for Mother Earth as well as each other? What is the role of human beings on this planet? Her paintings call out for a kinder interaction between humans and Earth and suggest that our interconnectedness needs to be healed, nourished and celebrated.
