Jerald Melberg Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new pastels by Charles Basham Nov. 10 – Dec. 29. Aptly titled Ends of the Day, the exhibition will debut large-scale pastels with an emphasis on landscapes at sunrise and sunset.
In these works, Basham renders dramatic and compelling moments of indirect morning and evening light, heightened through bold colors such as magenta, gold, lemon, emerald and turquoise. The natural vistas he portrays escape contextual clues that would place it in a specific time and place, sharing with audiences an enhanced version of the universal experience of being outdoors.
Charles Basham received his B.F.A. and M.F.A. from Kent State University in his native state of Ohio, where he still resides on the family farm. He has been making art for over 40 years, and as a result, has enjoyed much acclaim for his visually stimulating and emotionally charged landscapes.
At 11 am on Saturday, Nov. 10, the exhibition will open to the public with a Coffee & Conversation event with the artist speaking and answering questions about the works in the exhibition.
