Kathryn not only occupies his office, but has taken his treasure trove of unusual still life objects and created a wonderful group of drawings that depict their subjects in graphic and carefully rendered drawings while imbuing them with life and vitality, very much in the spirit of Professor Eldred.
An outboard motor turned upside down expresses its personality and feelings in “Shame”, “Moving Forward” (a profile view of “Shame”), “Exhale” and “Looking Down”. A metal faucet comes to life in “Preparing for Rain”. Knowing both the life it was intended for and sensing the water soon to come, the handle becomes its umbrella.
We leave it to the viewer to imagine the whimsical inanimate objects that inspired the rest of these lively drawings.
Those of you who have enjoyed Ms. Niles colorful paintings of the Grand Canyon in a previous show will be happy to know that for this exhibit she has captured the beauty of Quechee Gorge in Vermont. The gorge and the river running through it are the subject matter for three large oil paintings that show the colors of fall in New England.
