“High Noon” – painting by Matt Edwards

The title “Flores do Verão” is a reference to the Portuguese influence on Edwards. The use of flowers and trees form compositions that challenge Edwards’ palette, but gives a sense of the beauty of the world surrounding us all. Some of his latest work is derived from Portuguese azulejos – vibrant ceramic tiles used to build geometric patterns.

This exhibition will run from November 4 through 26. Gallery viewing hours after the opening reception will be 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
