Fabled Antiques Presents ‘Spring Palette’ Exhibition

Special to the  Times

Fabled Antiques has announced ‘A Spring Palette,’ an art exhibition of floral still lifes and spring landscapes presented in collaboration with its flagship store, New Hampshire Antique Co-op, renowned for its fine art gallery. This botanical-inspired show is now on view at Fabled Antiques at 93 Charles St.

The exhibition features a selection of paintings by noted 19th- and 20th-century American Impressionist artists, such as Emile Gruppe, Arthur Clifton Goodwin, Margaret Stuber Pearson, Andre Gisson, Paul Starrett Sample, Gustave Wiegand, Dines Carlsen, and Dimitri Romanovsky.

Paul Starrett Sample (1896-1974), ‘New England landscape,’ oil on canvas.

American Impressionism emerged in the late 1800s and early 1900s as an influential movement. Inspired by the French Impressionists, American artists sought to capture the fleeting effects of light and atmosphere in their works, often depicting scenes of nature and everyday life in a loose and expressive style. Impressionists were drawn to the natural beauty of the countryside, including rural landscapes, coastal scenes, and gardens in bloom. American Impressionism flourished in New England, where artists captured the changing seasons, vibrant colors and distinctive light.

Also featured in ‘A Spring Palette ‘is contemporary Rhode Island impressionist artist Stephen Motyka, whose floral still-life paintings capture the vividness of spring with his bright palette. Motyka started painting and drawing at a young age and furthered his technique through coursework at the Rhode Island School of Design. He has found a signature style in his paintings and Fabled Antiques is delighted to be featuring his work.

‘A Spring Palette’ sets the stage for celebrating the arrival of spring and offers a glimpse into the area’s rich artistic heritage. From the tranquil landscapes of Gustave Wiegand’s ‘Lake Sunapee, NH,’ to the timeless elegance of Andre Gisson’s ‘Still Life with Fruit & Flowers,’ each artwork captures the essence of the season.

Visitors are invited to explore not only the artworks but also the five rooms of antiques, decorative accessories, and vintage finds that define Fabled Antiques’ unique and welcoming charm.

‘A Spring Palette’ is on view now through June 30.
