Understory – Landscape Paintings by Jason Needham Gallery Exhibition
Sep 1 – Nov 24 all-day

“I’ve had a long-standing interest in impressionism, post-impressionism, and early American modernists like Marsden Hartley. All the other obvious influences apply: David Hockney, Neil Welliver, Alex Katz, Lois Dodd, among others. I’m drawing and painting scenes that are very familiar to me: forest scenes just off the beaten path, a pocket of woods with an interstate, parking lot or air-conditioned retreat just behind me. The trick is to see these mundane moments as majestic while allowing the mistakes of hand and misconceptions of eye be as present as the purposeful. I like the paintings to coalesce from a distance but upon close inspection fall apart into marks and the process of making, with the underlaying scaffolding of the image still visible. Each brushstroke becomes a single particle and the painting a wave of time-space. Whether I’m standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon or staring into the corner of a room, the investment in looking is the same. On one end, I’m working areas of my brain that lie deeper than the surface stream of thoughts, the self-narrating voice. On the other end, I’m pondering the fundamental structure of reality.”

Mindfulness Painting October
Oct 12 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Cost: $10 Members receive 15% discount

We focus on the details of the paint mixing together, how the brush strokes feel, the movement of our hands and arms as we hold the brush and move it across the page. This is a fun way to create an abstract painting that helps people learn to relax, breathe, and see the finer details of life.
