Autumn with Mr. Inness just arrived at Greylock Gallery for the August show. Who is Mr. Inness? My hero, and an influential later 19th century American landscape painter. His paintings of autumn were startlingly abstract and soulful. I enjoyed the conceit of spending time with this master, as if I could invite him to come to my favorite spot and paint with me. Who knows, maybe I’ll invite him again?
In the meantime, if you are visiting the Berkshires and WIlliamstown, stop in at the Greylock Gallery, have lunch nearby, and don’t forget to visit the new bookstore next to the gallery. It makes for a fun day! Enjoy.
