Exhibition: Local Places: Recent Oil Paintings by Dan Lukens

Monday Jan 2, 2017 Tuesday Jan 31, 2017

Public Reception: Sunday, January 22nd, 2 - 4 PM

For the month of January, the Piermont Library will exhibit Local Places: Recent Oil Paintings by Dan Lukens. An artist’s reception will be held on Sunday, January 22nd from 2 - 4 PM.

Piermont resident and Rockland native, Dan Lukens explores local places and themes in this series of recent oil paintings. Inspired by nature and the surrounding landscape, from the rocks at Tallman State Park, to streets and storefronts, to the creek’s serenity, Lukens’ vision is captured on the canvas.

“The best art is the kind that people are proud to own, not for the name at the bottom of the canvas, but for what it evokes. Good work doesn't need an explanation. The good is in how it makes you feel. I don’t paint to be an artist. I paint because I love the experience. The hope is that the marks I make on a canvas will come together as something worthy of being another person’s cherished possession,” says Lukens, “The local places and themes in my work are the things I know, love and come to understand better as I try to develop them as an image. The hope is that I can bring the viewer with me as all of that unfolds in the paint.”
