Paint the Towns in Fall Color

Reception & Judge’s Comments


Art, All Ages

The Best of Show Award was presented to Todd Schable for his painting NIGHT SHIFTS. Judge Neilsen comments were: “There is an “OCTOBERNESS” about this painting that makes me feel that the artist has captured a MOOD as well as a PLACE. The mood is totally AUTUMNAL…an autumn night wherein darkness is both a symbol of rest and fear…painting an autumn night wherein color is dampened by darkness or eerily transformed by artificial light takes both technical mastery and poetic nuance…and this painting surely reveals both. And this is NOT to say this is a bleak image…it’s mature (as autumn is the most mature of all seasons) it’s mysterious in both a physical and metaphysical way (physical insomuch as one easily recognizes this as a specific building and metaphysical in that is refers to IDEAS of night and passage and journey and age and mystery)and it’s HOPEFUL as there’s a RADIANT patch of light on the right side, along the pathway, that’s as utilitarian as it is a luminous metaphor for safety and a watchful eye in the world. In the spirit of the plein air aesthetic, that one can find BEAUTY all round us, even in the darkness, well, that’s an apt metaphor for both the diminishing “light of day” in October and how even during an international pandemic, we can rely on beauty to hearten our belief in better, more beautiful days to come. This is, in my mind and heart, a very, very beautiful work of art.”
