NEWFANE — The Crowell Gallery is extending C. Peter Erickson’s exhibit “On the Way By” through the end of this month.
Erickson applies the original French chess definition of “passing through” to his art, establishing the world’s impermanence, its placement neither here nor there, but somewhere along the way, according to an exhibit description.
The airbrush technique he employs in his recent work enhances the feeling of moving through an event, sometimes slowly and gently, and other times wildly propelled.
Erickson attributes his work to his penchant for “making stuff,” and in 1980 became an architect. Following many years of construction project management, he has been biding his time by making paintings.
The Crowell Gallery is open during library hours: Tuesday 1 to 5 p.m., Wednesday 2 to 6 p.m., Thursday 1 to 5 p.m., Friday 2 to 6 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
