Landscape comes alive during an upcoming solo exhibition of Douglas Fryer’s latest oils.

“Art happens in the heart and in the mind and in the soul, not just the hand,” observes Douglas Fryer, and it is a philosophy that surfaces with stunning results in the artist’s landscapes. Filled with predominantly soft, graceful strokes, Fryer’s paintings have an atmospheric essence that filters into the viewer’s space, encapsulating that viewer in a fury of emotional experience.
