But there’s a problem: first, they haven’t written it yet, secondly they don’t have a girl, and sadly, they have no idea whatsoever about love. As the deadline approaches, everything becomes swept up in a series of dazzling numbers and comical scenes as their theme “Love” begins to derail the show.

Lynette Blake: Within and Beyond An exhibit of oil paintings Marcellus, NY: Baltimore Woods Nature Center Weeks Art Gallery is pleased to present Within and Beyond, an exhibit and sale of oil paintings by Lynette Blake. On exhibit from September 4th through October 26th, 2012 in the Weeks Art Gallery, 4007 Bishop Hill Road, Marcellus, NY this collection of work is open to the public during regular business hours: M-F 9am-4pm and Saturday 10am-4pm. A reception for the artist will be held in the gallery on Sunday, September 30th from 2-4 pm. The public is invited to attend. There is no admission charge to the gallery or reception, and parking is free.

Blake’s oil paintings draw the viewer in through complex layers of shape and color. The use of overlapping imagery conveys a depth that extends deep below the surface of the canvas. Objects, whether used directly or evoked by abstract shapes, float in and out of light illuminating them with a pervasive warm glow. The effect is otherworldly—a feeling of being outside time and space is conveyed. Blake explains her intention: “In my paintings I strive to convey a sense of the infinite which exists in the everyday but is veiled to our conventional senses.” Focusing on creating a sense of the infinite for the viewer, Blake uses the formal elements of objective representation, shape and pattern, and adds an intuitive understanding, Together, these elements combine to express her vision. She states: “My current work is an effort to integrate three facets that together help us to experience this sense of the infinite. First, the world experienced through our senses, captured by the depiction of objects. Second, the concept of the intellectual, expressed by geometric shapes and patterns. Finally, connecting and embracing the first two is the cosmic element. This is an expression of what we can intuit when things are unbounded by space and time.”

Lynette Blake has exhibited her work throughout the Northeast, and is currently represented locally by the Szozda Gallery in Syracuse, as well as national venues. She studied art at Brown University in Rhode Island and currently resides in Upstate NY. More information on Blakes’s work can be found on her website: www.lynetteblake.com More information on the Weeks Gallery at Baltimore Woods can be found at: www.baltimorewoods.org
