An opening reception will be held at A Muse Gallery from 6–9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 7. Sixteen oil paintings of landscapes that feature regional subjects from Charney’s recent summer production will be on exhibit through Oct. 12.
In addition, Charney was selected to display his work in the “East of Eden: Contemporary Ohio Landscape Painters” exhibit, where he has five oil paintings. The exhibit is located in The Schumacher Art Gallery at Capital University. An opening reception for the public will take place from 5-7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 7, in the gallery.
Charney, who taught a study abroad course in Rome over the summer, will present a secondary watercolor body of work in the Springfield Museum of Art student gallery in December.
