Trailside Galleries is pleased to open its summer art season with three distinct showcases featuring new works by painters Bruce Cheever, David Dibble, and Robert Moore. While the artists have contrasting styles, their choice of subject matter, namely landscape, architecture, and rural scenes, provides a cohesive and flowing theme to each individual showcase.
Robert Moore is known for his masterful use of light to show strong contrasts, such as the graceful forms of a forest interior backlit with brilliant sunlight. Whether painting a pure landscape, still-life, architectural subject or an occasional figurative, his distinctive combination of brush and palette knife, coupled with his use of heavy surface texture brings forth a passion and energy to every canvas. He frequently uses vivid colors and high-keyed values that reveal a spiritually inspired joy.
