ANNE BUCKWALTER: Room Key

Pentimenti Gallery , 145 North 2nd Street

APRIL 17 - JUNE 5, 2021 ANNE BUCKWALTER ROOM KEY EXHIBITION PREMIERE Saturday, April 17 | 12 PM - 5 PM by appointment VIRTUAL ARTIST TALK Thursday, May 6 | 5:30 PM Pentimenti Gallery welcomes spring with a solo exhibition of the work of Anne Buckwalter. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition at the gallery. Anne Buckwalter’s paintings draw on an inherited legacy of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art, but utilize those composition and design motifs to take on contemporary and deeply personal themes. With their dark, muted colors and quality of set stillness, the works exist in a parallel reality that is haunted by both the present and the past. Buckwalter paints an experience of invitational voyeurism in which she leads the viewer through a setting that can be read as fictional, or as a kind of self-portraiture and self-reflection.
