Grand Rapids artist Jeff Condon opens up his mental file of images — collected over a lifetime living in the city and country — and returns to Center Gallery with an exhibition of contemporary landscapes. This show opens Aug. 7 with a 6 p.m. reception, and runs through Aug. 13. Center Gallery is located at 6023 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor.
Condon’s approach to landscape painting takes a fresh, original twist. He abstracts the perspective by flattening farmhouses and field, and paints in a range of unexpected, vibrant colors not found in the natural world he venerates. Condon works in oil paint, oil pastel and oil stick.
