By leaving out some details and deliberately enhancing others, painter Nancy Treherne Craig magnifies the beauty of the natural scenes she depicts. In works such as Spangled Rill, in which meticulously rendered tree boughs frame a loosely painted waterscape, the painter makes the viewer want to run out immediately and experience her magical scenes. Craig’s ability to depict light, reflections, and the movement of water is expert and seemingly effortless. As the painter says in her statement, “We need to open our eyes.” Buffalo art lovers need to get themselves to East Aurora and open their eyes wide for Craig’s paintings.
