‘New Works by Martin Rollins’

Martin Rollins is famous for his Louisville cityscapes, but, for now, his interest has shifted to landscapes. The 14 oil pastel paintings on display are lush with the color that only oil pastels can bring. Rollins is also known for his handling of light. Not in that awful Thomas “Master of Light” Kinkade way, but in showing light as it is in nature, rolling past and temporarily infusing an area with radiance and details once hidden. A reception for the artist is Saturday, Nov. 12 from 3-5 p.m.
