Opening this Wednesday is Rocky Neck Gallery Summer Artist Series featuring contemporary realist artist Claudia Kaufman and her paintings in oil.  This exhibit is titled "Simply Looking, Looking Simple."

Claudia Kaufman says, “As a contemporary realist painter, my works are studies in observation... still life set-ups of familiar objects that are deceptively simple, yet complex. Stopping short of photo-realism, I work to keep the signs of my hand and brushstroke in my work and am particularly intrigued by the drama of light, transparency, reflection and strong shadows.”

Kaufman’s “Simply Looking: Looking Simple,” opens Wednesday, July 6 and runs until Tuesday, July 19. A reception for the artist will be held Saturday, July 9, from 5-8 p.m. The public is invited.  Please join us, meet the artist and hear Claudia talk about her paintings.
