Reception at Buster Levi set for May 6
The Buster Levi Gallery in Cold Spring will host an opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, May 6 for an exhibit of new paintings by two Japanese artists, Setsuya Kotani and Yoko Yoshimatsu. It continues through May 22.
Yoshimatsu, who lives in a village near Osaka when she is not visiting the U.S. typically paints dream-like female figures. Her style recalls in mood and finish two artists of the French Symbolist period: Gustave Moreau and Odilon Redon.
Like Yoshimatsu, Kotani pays meticulous attention to brushwork, detail, and mood. A retired professor of painting and ceramics from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, his abstract canvasses are subtle poetries with a glaze-like finish, obliquely telling tales of human relationship.
The gallery is located at 121 Main St. For information, visit busterlevigallery.com.
