Ray Ruseckas Exhibition

  • Ray Ruseckas Walpole

    RAY RUSECKAS

    October 28 – December 2, 2017
    The Barn at 28 Main, Walpole, NH

    CYNTHIA-REEVES will present new works by chalk pastel artist Ray Ruseckas. Ruseckas, who is known for the deep, natural earth tones of his pastels, has turned his eye in recent years toward the riverways and treescapes of New England. Beginning with his own treeline along the Green River, and the hillside above his home where the wood’s edge meets a broad swath of open fields, he began to study how that intersection of bramble meets tree, grasses to bramble, water to grass edge. All of these views are integral to our sense of the region.

    NEW PASTELS

    January 16 – March 22, 2016
    The Barn @ 28 Main Street, Walpole, NH

    Ray Ruseckas’ work is marked by a certain sense of mystery: he is sensitive to the nuances of the changing light and thus tonal shifts of the landscape under the quixotic New England skies, and has great respect for the what the land has to offer: its depth of color, the texture of the fields, the mass of tree branches, the weight of the sky, the volume of the landscape itself. These elements cohere to create a strong sense of ‘witnessing’ the landscape, of participating in the landscape…. an unusual and generous experience for the viewer.
