Henry Finkelstein opens May 21st at Valley House Gallery

Next Saturday, May 21, we will open an exhibition of recent paintings by Henry Finkelstein. He will give an artist talk Saturday, May 21, 11:00 am, and the Opening Reception will be Saturday, May 21, 6:00 pm-8:00 pm.

Valley House Gallery is pleased to present “Paintings” our tenth solo exhibition of work by artist Henry Finkelstein. Henry Finkelstein is a colorist and a landscape painter, with a working dynamic highly influenced by the Abstract Expressionists. Finkelstein paints from life, discovering meaning as he works. He attests, “nature gives me a grounding,” and elaborates “color is the most important thing. For me, color is emotion. It’s a sensibility inspired by the light and air in which I paint. These feelings are hard to name because this is the nature of emotion. And if I could name them what would there be left to look at?” Finkelstein reacts to the landscape in a loose, lyrical painting manner, as he focuses on discovering in nature new color relationships, spatial concerns, and rhythms. It is a process, as he says, of “listening to color.”Henry Finkelstein earned his MFA at Yale University School of Art in 1983, followed by a Fulbright Grant to study in Italy. In 1994, he was elected a National Academician. Finkelstein has taught painting and drawing in New York City since 1996. Henry Finkelstein will give an Artist Talk on Saturday, May 21, at 11:00am. The exhibition will be on view through June 18, 2022.
