Wellfleet’s AMZehnder Gallery, now in its second season, presents simultaneous shows by Dianne Longchamps and Tom Wilson Jones running Thursday, June 3rd through Tuesday, June 8th.
Titled “Glimpses of Memory,” Jones’s show draws on the abstraction of Richard Diebenkorn and applies it through the prism of the Cape landscape with pleasing results. A perky palette and a painterly but sensitive touch make for engaging work that switches out California light for Cape Cod glow.
Longchamps takes the Cape’s beaches, boats, wharves, and antique houses as inspiration. She applies broad strokes to large three-panel room dividers — the buoyancy of the loose brushwork is a nice counterpoint to the solid wood beneath. With the breeziness of Jones’s work, it’s an engaging pairing.
The gallery, located at 25 Bank Street #3, is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily except Wednesdays. Openings are Saturdays from 5 to 7 p.m.
