Carol Gobin came to landscape painting just years ago after extensive study in house building and architectural drafting as well as graphic design and visual arts. After college she spent fifteen years as a commercial artist before taking up oil paints and portraying the old barns and landscapes she found in the hills surrounding her northwest Connecticut home. Not surprisingly her paintings focus on architectural details. She selects parts of buildings – the cupola on a shingled roof or the red barn door or the complex angles where barn walls come together – and washes them in the bright sunlight of the dying day. Gobin received her formal art education at the California College of Art and the Berkshire Community College where she studied under Mark Milloff.

Gail Sauter received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the University of Oklahoma and has had numerous exhibits both nationally as well as internationally. Sauter strives to capture the extraordinary in the ordinary. Intrigued with memories it is in her work that she seeks not to depict what she is seeing but instead the after image that stays with her. Her paintings convey time and place with a strong impact that recreates the experience of being present in that moment.

The Harrison Gallery is located at 39 Spring Street in Williamstown, MA. Gallery hours are Wednesday - Saturday, 10AM to 5:30PM, Sunday 11AM to 4PM. For further information, please contact The Harrison Gallery at (413) 458-1700 or visit our website at www.theharrisongallery.com.
