In this show Winthrop Gallery artists offer artworks that reflect upon the fullness that we experience in the fall harvest. Expressed in paintings, drawings, photographs and more, this show is a celebration of fall.
Susan Donahue offers her oil painting “Wheat Field between Winthrop and Twisp”. “The wheat field being harvested is located between Winthrop and Twisp on Highway 20,” explains Susan. She hopes her viewers will feel that the landscape is familiar in that it depicts a specific time and place but also that the painting shows something previously unforeseen as if coming upon the scene by chance.

Tamera Abate will display her encaustic painting “Provencal Harvest”. “This painting is based on memories of time spent in Provence at the height of the lavender harvest season,” says Tamera. “The fields filled with row after row of purple lavender were often next to fields of golden sunflowers also in full bloom, the sky seemed to realize it was no match for the colorful fields and was content being a hazy grey. I don’t know which I miss the most, the sweet, lavender scented air or the sweeping fields of color.”
