Roy Perkinson's show, Moods of Light, opens today May 6th, 2011.
Perkinson is especially known for capturing those fleeting moments, whether at twilight or in broad daylight, when light and atmospherics transform a landscape and evoke a poetic mood. Whether he's working with oils, watercolor, or pastel, his sensitive use of color conveys a sense of open space and the expressive qualities of the sky. He frequently works on location, and has included work from Italy, France, as well as his native Texas, Maine, and right here in Framingham.
There's so much involved in putting together a show. The first, critical step, is creating a strong, cohesive body of work. Without that, any amount of subsequent effort is wasted. But that's just the beginning. With Roy Perkinson's work, step one was a given.
Roy worked tirelessly to present his work in the best possible light. He carefully selected the placement of pieces in the show- to reflect the various locations, media, moods depicted in his paintings to best advantage, using a scale model of the gallery to help him arrange the layout of the seventy or so pieces in the exhibition. He was assisted in hanging the work by our great intern, Max Polatin.
He's also produced a stunning catalog for the show, with an introduction written by literary scholar and connoisseur Michael Nimetz.
