curated by Geoffrey Young, poet, critic and founder of Geoffrey Young Gallery, Great Barrington, Massachusetts.

Judith Linhares luminous oil paintings and works on paper have inspired a generation of younger figurative painters. The wit and intelligence of her narrative style and chromatic immediacy entertain and dazzle with poetic risk.

James Siena's never-before shown Pockets of Wheat drawings, made in 1996, are his only large-scale works to date, each measuring five feet high. Inspired by a range of disparate sources patterns, algorithms, puzzle-like geometries this leading proponent of abstraction creates works that confound and celebrate the logic of conventional picture-making.
