Of Dark and Bright - A new collection from Laurie Buck

When Laurie strolled into the gallery last year and introduced herself, we just knew we would be working with a bright light. Wife, mother, painter…she juggles it all with grace and creates gorgeous floral paintings with depth and intrigue.

Read below for a look inside this beautiful exhibition.

“She walks in beauty, like the night

Of cloudless climes and starry skies;

And all that’s best of dark and bright

Meet in her aspect and her eyes.”

-Lord Byron

“I love exploring the effects of light and darkness on color, as well as on our moods, and am fascinated by the way the eye searches for light. This show is an examination of light and shadow, specifically on flowers, and reveals my embrace of them both. During this time of year where we meet with nearly equal amounts of night and day, I hope that these pieces, like this brilliant season, will remind the viewer of “all that’s best of dark and bright.”
