This past Saturday, March 25, painter Richard Lindenberg kicked off his four-week exhibit (through April 22) at the Gallery with a short talk and painting demonstration. We had excellent attendance, as folks sat in chairs we put out in the first gallery in the midst of the exhibit of Richard’s beautiful landscape oil paintings. Richard had a couple of examples of his black and white photographs and spoke informally for about twenty minutes on “How Photography Influenced My Painting Life.” The talk was based on a blog post he did a few months ago on Lori Putnam’s site, here. He’s a very natural, relaxed and engaging speaker, and fielded questions expertly. After the talk, Richard gave a landscape painting demonstration at an easel he’d set up in the corner of the second gallery. We then cleared the first gallery to allow people to fully enjoy the paintings, while those who wanted to watch the painting demonstration took their folding chairs with them into the next room. See images and video below. Visit Richard’s page, here, with all the paintings now posted for your enjoyment! I hope you’ll come in to see them in person.
UPDATE: Richard will return to set up in the window and paint on Saturday, April 8 beginning at 1:00. Come by!

The last 6 minutes of the brief talk. Richard tells about an epiphany he experienced during a class in Yosemite Valley with the master photographer Paul Caponigro, and explains the importance to painters of approaching each painting with clarity, as well as really seeing and observing what’s around them.
