Envisioning Landscape: Richard Pence

129 E. Main St.

Upcoming Dates & Times

Friday, October 5, 2018 at 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Old Main Gallery & Framing is pleased to feature the work of Richard Pence for a solo exhibition, Envisioning Landscape, in the month of October. An Opening Reception will take place on Friday, October 5th, 5-7 PM. This event is open to the public.

Richard Pence, a local artist and home designer, works in bold, abstract forms and vivid colors to depict the Montana landscape. Pence uses the landscape as a tool for self discovery. The strong brushstrokes and implied movement draws the viewer's eye over the canvas, allowing them to explore something new each time.

I think that a good painting has the ability to change the viewer’s perspective and also be a sounding board for the thoughts of the viewer. With this in mind, I work to arrange the formal aspects of each painting as having more importance than the actual depiction of the place. I work to reduce each form to it’s essence in hope of leaving the viewer with the possibility of being more deeply affected by those forms and having a greater sense of place.
