Colorful and expressive works from Christine Lafuente — known for her exquisite plein air still lifes, landscapes, and more — are the subjects of a solo exhibition on the East Coast. Where and when?
Opening March 11 at Delaware’s Somerville Manning Gallery is an exciting solo exhibition from acclaimed painter Christine Lafuente. “By the Window, By the Sea” will feature approximately 34 works of plein air still life and landscape mastery.

Vivid colors and expressive application of paint activate Lafuente’s surfaces. In some cases, namely her seascapes, the painting is imaged through a number of large, thick, horizontal strokes, reducing the scene to broad color fields and basic shapes.
An opening reception for “By the Window, By the Sea” will take place March 11 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The exhibition will be on view through April 2. To learn more, visit Somerville Manning Gallery.
