The gallery will present 24 re cent small-scaled oil on panel paintings in the ninth one-person exhibition of Lois Dodd’s work at the gallery.

\n

Dodd continues to explore her familiar everyday subjects of gardens\, lands capes and interiors with freshness and directness grounded in observation.  With titles such as House and Laundry on Foggy Day (2010)\, P ath to the Barn (2011)\, and Barn Window – Blue Sky (2011) Do dd paints her subjects with an unsentimental\, no-nonsense directness that merges realism and abstraction with a minimalist touch. 

\n

Writing in a 2003 review of the gallery’s first Dodd sh ow\, the critic Grace Glueck said\, “translating the commonplace into art h as long been the province of Lois Dodd . . .who celebrates the richness of everyday life . . . Simple as the work seems\, it touches the transcendenta l.”  Dodd’s colleague the painter-critic Robert Berlind has said\, “ One fe els that she downplays detailed literal description not out of some moderni st imperative\, but as the Shaker hymn puts it\, because she has ‘a gift to be simple’ and with that temperamental dispensation\, ‘a gift to be free.’  She knows just when to stop – a sure sign of grace.”
