Art review by The Times Argus.
“Blues, pale grays and white, the palette of Elizabeth Nelson’s abstracted landscapes evoke the water and air of Iceland. Mary McKay Lower’s large canvasses draw viewers in close to myriad apples peppered on the ground in a bountiful year, a murder of flapping crows, the catalpas in her back yard and more.
Nelson and Lower are the featured artists in an exhibition that opened earlier this month in the Contemporary Gallery at Montpelier’s T.W. Wood Gallery. The show includes large oil paintings by Lower considering aspects of landscape and nature in Vermont and Nelson’s acrylic paintings inspired by the landscape of Iceland.”
