“Sunlight & Water” & Artist Reception w/Tom Semmes
Meet Tom and chat about his exhibition on display from 5-8pm during the Artist Reception!
“Sunlight & Water” features Tom Semmes’ recent oil paintings on canvas or archival paper. The works reflect his long-term interest in the nuances of light and the changing seasons of both urban and rural settings. Most of the paintings were started en plein air and finished in the studio.
Semmes is inspired by his home in downtown Frederick, Maryland, as well as his travels in France and Italy. Rich colors and expressive brushstrokes define his landscapes.
The show features a series that captures the view outside of his studio window: “They are,” says Semmes, “a record, like Monet’s haystacks, of one subject under changing conditions.”
