Endangered Farmscapes – Paintings by James Coe
The historic architecture of our local farms has literally settled into the soils of upstate New York and Vermont. Today, the barns that our ancestors raised are an integral part of our surroundings, and yet, they are disappearing and endangered. With these observations in mind artist James Coe has assembled this exhibition of oil paintings featuring local barns and farms—landscapes that he refers to as farmscapes.
On view in the Regional Art Galleries from Friday, July 30th through October 13, 2021.
James Coe is known worldwide as a wildlife and bird artist, and as the illustrator of numerous bird guides, including his own Golden Guide Eastern Birds. In 2011 he was honored as a Master Wildlife Artist by the Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin. For the past 20 years Jim has been focusing primarily on landscapes, and working in oil paints. “The subject matter reflects my passions in life: birds, nature, old barns and our endangered rural landscape— but the thread that ties all of my artwork together is more conceptual. My goal is to find in each motif a balance of abstract design and evocative light, and to create a luscious surface of paint and canvas.”
