Art On Main, The Gallery at Barnbrook Realty is proud to present the recent work of Margaret Buchte, one of the Berkshires best known regional artists.
Great Barrington, MA – New Paintings by Margaret Buchte will be on view at Art On Main, The Gallery at Barnbrook Realty from January 3 to February 26, 2015.
Working primarily in oils for this show, Margaret Buchte, one of the Berkshire’s best-known regional artists, has captured the light and energy of the rural landscape and the urban streetscape. Though her easel and palette are commonly seen in and around Great Barrington, Lenox and other small hamlets of the Berkshire hills, Buchte has widened her reach and is working in “plein aire” further afield these days. Indeed, there are horses and cows out below the blue sky and clean air of grasslands but we are also treated to the man-made, architectural and decidedly grayer concrete of life in the city.
For those of us who have lived in the Berkshires for a long time, when the commonplace scenes of everyday life can become stale or just too familiar to notice, the paintings of Margaret Buchte enliven our attention and we are invited to see them again through Buchte’s rich color and dazzling light. This is a very enriching experience.
