The Harrison Gallery will be presenting a solo exhibition of paintings by John MacDonald - one of the most popular, prolific and respected landscape artists of this area from September 7 - 30, 2013. An opening reception with the artist will be held on Saturday, September 7th from 5 – 7 pm and is open to the public.
When John MacDonald paints a landscape, it is what he leaves out of the image that makes it so true. He paints nature the way it really is – no romantic flourishes, sentimentality or symbolism. By omitting most architectural structures and all human figures his paintings avoid any narrative and achieve a classic timelessness.
