Join us for light snacks and beverages on First Friday at AXOM Gallery and enjoy the delightful the solo exhibition of paintings by the well-known and highly respected artist/painter, Paul Garland. Due to it’s popularity AXOM is extending the duration of the show through January 21, 2017.
Nearly a half century has passed since his first professional solo exhibition of paintings in February, 1967 at Janus Gallery in Rochester, NY.  In the years since, he has with unflagging commitment, pursued an intensive studio engagement which has led to numerous solo exhibitions in galleries across the country including New York City, Toronto, Chicago, Minneapolis, in other major art centers, and of course his home town of Rochester, NY.
In Approaching Fifty, the artist, whose studio is located in Fair Haven, NY, continues his pursuit of a distinctive and personal approach to painting in two different series.
In the series titled Now, modernist abstractions symbolize an individual’s inevitable life experiences of facing abrupt change and confronting how to deal with loss.
Square Moon Rising, a second series of three paintings, presents larger acrylic works on canvas which combine modernist abstraction with elements of landscape creating unique and intimate environments
