"New Hampshire Landscapes in Motion" | Concord Chamber of Commerce | January - March

The Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce will host an exhibition of oil landscapes by Daryl D. Johnson titled “New Hampshire Landscapes in Motion,” Jan. 3 through March, 2019.
Described by Art New England magazine as “…gestural realist landscapes with the overall effect of speeding through layers of lighted space,” Johnson's oil paintings of landscapes are inspired by her motorcycle travels. The original oil paintings are awash with the energy of movement and nature with shifting patterns of water and rising transient clouds.

“The views are familiar, but the subtext is the underlying chi, the sweeping momentum,” Johnson said describing her paintings. “The earth ‘breathes in and out’ with compositions of uplifting shapes. These oils on canvas celebrate the vibration of the planet.”

Johnson was born in Manhattan, grew up in NYC’s suburbs and moved to New Hampshire in 1988. Johnson has a BFA from Hope College in Holland, Michigan, and studied at the Vermont Studio School and The Art Students League of New York.

Johnson's paintings have won numerous awards and are in private and corporate collections throughout the world including Fidelity Investments, Delta Airlines and Pepsico. She is a juried member of the New Hampshire Art Association and maintains a studio in Amherst, New Hampshire

The Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The exhibit runs Jan. 3 through March 21. There will be an opening reception on Jan. 11, from 5 to 7 p.m. in conjunction with the New Hampshire Furniture Masters also on view at the Concord Chamber and the League of N.H. Craftsmen across the lobby.

The chamber is located at 49 South Main Street, Suite 104, Concord.

Artwork is for sale by contacting the New Hampshire Art Association at (603) 431-4230.

"Lost Places" | Jan to Mar | 2 Pillsbury Street

Lost Places exhibit from Steve Genatossio

“My camera serves as a time machine. The subjects that intrigue me are man-made structures whose time here is limited. Most often when I return to a location the subjects have vanished or been altered in a significant way. The Old World has icons that have lasted thousands of years while the New World seems to tire easily of most things. I believe in preservation and my camera helps to preserve it's subjects in a time to which one cannot go back.”

In addition here is some updated info about me from my website.

Steve Genatossio is a fine art photographer based in the New Hampshire Seacoast area.

He is a graduate of the New England School of Photography and ran a successful commercial studio specializing in product photography during the eighties. Since the early nineties, Steve has concentrated on fine art photography. Known mostly for his black and white depictions of decrepit abandoned buildings shot with film, the more recent digital projects that he’s worked on seem to share the same common thread of time found in the earlier work.          

Steve’s philosophy is simple.

"I photograph familiar objects and places with intent to spark feelings of nostalgia in the viewer”
