A compelling display of artwork currently lines the long hallway that is Flynndog gallery in Burlington. A selection of photographs, taken on the streets of Havana by Richmond resident Peter Curtis and collectively called “Intervals,” convey movement, joy and celebration. Curtis’ lyrical compositions are paired with moody abstractions by Roger Coleman, a Burlington writer and painter. In his part of the show, titled “Shadows on the Moon Pool,” the canvases do have a shadowy, almost ethereal quality; they hint at nature without copying it. Coleman himself describes the paintings best: “My recent influences include Ralph Blakelock for butter gold light through dark trees and George Innes for a soft whispering brush. Also with respectable nods to Turner for explosive color and Whistler for the nocturnes and Helen Frankenthaler for realizing a poetic surface.”
