Views Of Pools And Hedgerows

Quogue Library, Quogue

Opening: August 2, 5 to 7 PM

The Quogue Library Gallery presents Geoff Disston’s “Views Of Pools And Hedgerows.” Disston was trained in watercolors by his family of plein air watercolorists. Taking a cue from his watercolor training, Disston started to apply watered-down acrylics on raw canvas in the late ’90s. Staining raw canvas with acrylic washes allows for deeper color saturation, subtle color interactions through the transparencies, and sketch-like freshness. Like watercolors, this technique demands a “once and done” approach, limiting the number of paint layers, and using the white of the canvas for both negative space and light. The show opens with a reception on Thursday, August 2, from 5 to 7 PM and will run through September 2.
