Lynette Lombard’s (Art and Art History) recent show, Palpable Terrain at the Bowery Gallery in NY exhibited new paintings of the landscape from Southern Spain, Boston and the Jentel Art Residency in Wyoming. Art critic and historian Jennifer Samet wrote in the accompanying catalogue to the show, “Lombard’s work has a tension that reflects our time – what it means to be painting the landscape today. They are about what it means to be present in that landscape, watching and living an environment at risk.” Palpable Terrain, March 28-April 22, 2017

The exhibit was at the Westbeth Gallery, NY, March 4-25 2017
