Fall is in full swing around the country as leading galleries open their fall exhibitions. Oh Be Joyful Gallery in Colorado is no exception, but time is running out!
On view through October 11, “Meditations on Fall” is a featured group exhibition showcasing beautiful fall scenes from some of the country’s established artists. With David Grossmann, Meredith Nemirov, Sherrie York, and Cheryl St. John, Oh Be Joyful Gallery of Crested Butte, Colorado, has much to be joyful about.

St. John’s “Afternoon Glow” is absolutely stunning in its representation of a group of trees, their leaves fully charged with brilliant yellow. Nearly lost in the gorgeous commotion are the highlights and splashes of vibrant red in the grasses below, along with the hints of blue in the landscape beyond. “Looking Up at the Changing Trees” is magnetic as well and displays the looser touch of Grossmann. From a low perspective, the viewer gazes up at towering trees whose leaves are shifting from greens to orange and red.

Sherrie York offers viewer bold clarity in her “Treasured Path,” a print that allows the viewer to meditate on the quilting of color and leaves on the ground. A beautiful arrangement of pink, yellow, orange, and red leaves lay amongst brown and tan leaves and branches. Finally, Meredith Nemirov’s “Arbol Enredado” presents a more abstracted, but equally exquisite and detailed, arrangement of lines, colors, and forms undoubtedly inspired by the beauty of trees.
