Joan Baldwin: What is Really Going On?

February 19 – March 15, 2018, Reception Friday, March 2, 6 – 7:30pm

Welcome to the exquisite and strange world of Joan Baldwin’s paintings. Working in oils and also in pastels in her Waltham Mills studio, Baldwin crafts scenes with attractive surfaces and effulgent light that are quite nice. If you don’t look too closely. On first glance, these are meticulous and lovely landscapes with, admittedly, odd touches here and there. Looking thoroughly, however, we seem to have fallen into the land of pastoral painting a la Blue Velvet.

"The precise role of the artist, then, is to illuminate that darkness, blaze roads through that vast forest, so that we will not, in all our doing, lose sight of its purpose, which is, after all, to make the world a more human dwelling place.”
