The eight artists on view at the Bonfoey Gallerys Ohio Impressionists: Places and Passages
exhibit share a fondness for pastoral scenes that make the Buckeye State seem like one of the most serene places in the whole world. The painted landscapes also obviously nod to Impressionist masters, who could make even war-torn Europe seem like an ideal vacation spot. But there are differences among these Ohio artists. Mary Deutschmans bright, vibrant scenes sparkle with urban pizzazz, while Jance Lentzs pieces are stuffed with tree-lined paths and lily-speckled ponds. Teri Gilfilen, Ron Johnston, and Paula Rubenstein also contribute.
Fridays, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.; Mondays-Thursdays, 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.; Saturdays, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Starts: April 14. Continues through May 5
