Come bask in the soft tones of “Tonalism Now: The Present Moment” exhibit at Sullivan Goss—An American Gallery. Tonalism, considered more of a pictorial style than a particular school of art, inspired artists in the late 19th century and early 20th century to experiment with muted palettes and poetic moods often involving the faint glow of landscapes at dawn, dusk or in moonlight. Each of the featured contemporary artists have familiarity with the aesthetics of the American Tonalist tradition but have arrived at distinct individual styles. New and traditional media are showcased, including oil, acrylic, pencil, encaustic, tapestry, collodion photography and photo-polymer etching.

The sweet 16 artists include: Meredith Brooks Abbott, Ben Bauer, Terry DeLapp, Betsy Eby, Jon Francis, Joseph Goldyne, April Gornik, Mark Lozano, Chris Peters and  Lindsey Ross.

Also on view is work by Bjorn Rye, David Skinner, Nicole Strasburg, James David Thomas, Sarah Vedder and Monica Wiesblott.

Running concurrently with “Tonalism Now” is the exhibit “Tonalism Then: 1870-1930,” as Sullivan Goss provides a beautiful way for you to contextualize modern creations with their historical influences and appreciate the similarities and differences. Both exhibits run through December 29. The gallery (7 E. Anapamu St.) is open daily, 10 a.m.–5:30 p.m. For more info, go online.
