Take a gander at some of the very best of contemporary traditional landscape and still-life works at the Greenwich Arts Council’s (GAC) new exhibition, Crossing Paths: Bucks County Visits New England.

The show, which runs from May 23 through July 11, features  more than sixty oil paintings by four major artists of the renowned Bucks County School.

Artists Frank Arcuri, Dot Bunn, Melody Phaneuf and Ernest Principato demonstrate the decades long influence of the Bucks County School as it mingles with the characteristic traits of the Monhegan Island, Maine, and Boston-Provincetown stylistic traditions.

The paintings of Frank Arcuri, for example, are “incredible studies in realism.” His detailed rendering of still-life, such as Cherries on Painted Table, are exacting depictions of objects in space that draw heavily on the aesthetic of the great Dutch masters of the seventeenth century. Each piece of fruit appears as if it might be picked up and eaten directly from the picture.

Likewise the landscapes of Dot Bunn invite the viewer to literally walk into the picturesque outdoor spaces created in her paintings. Her works unfold a “majestic, almost romantic, projection of the world” that expand the scene well beyond the confines of the picture frame.

This exhibition is a collaboration of the Greenwich Arts Council and the Patricia Hutton Galleries, located in historic Doylestown, Pa. The GAC is located at 299 Greenwich Avenue. Admission is free and the galleries are handicapped accessible.
