The Tremaine Gallery is pleased to present the contemporary painting exhibit Marjory Reid Plus Two: Janet Rickus, Warner Friedman. The exhibit will run December 10, 2016 - February 12, 2017. An artist reception will be held Saturday, December 10, 4 - 6 p.m.

Marjory Reid taught art at The Hotchkiss School from 1986 - 2000. She fondly recalls the "special experiences" of teaching art and art history at the School. An abstract painter who describes her work as "nature reduced to shapes, colors, lines, drips, textures and splashes - with an attitude", Ms. Reid has exhibited widely throughout the U.S. and is the recipient of several grants and awards. Reid has curated this exhibit with the Tremaine Gallery's education-driven mission in mind by inviting painters Janet Rickus and Warner Friedman to show alongside her. Their work explores formal constraints particular to still life and landscape painting. Janet Rickus employs a meticulous approach to composition, carefully measuring the objects chosen as her subjects, then depicting them at their actual scale. Ms. Rickus is represented by galleries in New York City and Boston, Lincoln, and Nantucket, Massachusetts. Initially trained as an engineer, Warner Friedman uses architectural elements as framing devices in his large-scale landscape paintings, creating a trompe l'oeil effect. Mr. Friedman's work is part of several permanent collections, including the Berkshire Museum and the Boca Raton Museum of Art.

The Tremaine Gallery is a museum-caliber gallery located in the main building of The Hotchkiss School. With education at the heart of its mission, the gallery hosts six exhibitions a year.
