Arkell Museum Regional Art Galleries – Fine Art by Allen, Laumeister and Murphy

Allen presents Finding Solace in Simplicity – art as an antidote to feeling anxious about the world by turning to gardens for a sense of peace. Laumeister’s contemporary still life oil paintings are completed in a highly detailed style he developed while living and running an art gallery in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Murphy has exhibited widely in the Mohawk Valley region, Art Students League in NYC, and is a signature member of the Central NY Watercolor Society. Her show of oil and watercolor paintings includes Mary P. Murphy, Clare’s Red Table: A Painting Series, that honors her sister’s “resilience and determination, and for me, symbolizes love and life”. Murphy & Laumeister open on 8/5 with Allen on 8/9. On view through October 9, 2022.
