Entering RNG Gallery this month might evoke the sensation of entering a garden, not unlike the one artist and owner Rob Gilmer’s father created for his family on Long Island’s North Shore. As Merritt G. “Gil” Gilmer writes in his memoirs, “Chaff from the Haymow, Musings and Memories of a Ninety-Year-Old,”   “The old orchard was an orchard when we first came.

“Larry Roots: New Work…”

In the light of the recent deaths of abstract expressionist painters Helen Frankenthaler and Pat Passlof, both 83 and known for their masterful use of color, who continues to work in this challenging style? Locally, only a few come to mind in this continuous mission to define the indefinable through their art.

Kim Reid Kuhn and Cherisse McCoy do wonders with color and expressionism.
