Studio Visits: Opening Reception
Studio Visits features over 30 paintings by Seth Ruggles Hiler. All works employ a classical aesthetic sensibility, underscored with a contemporary use of color and composition. Hiler strives to go beyond creating likeness or surface description by expressing a momentary relationship to the subject. His works are informed by a collection of past experiences that foster intimate exchange.
