Providence artist Thomas Sgouros’s show at the Providence Art Club offers 30 paintings – uptight still-lifes from the mid-1980s to mid-90s, and brand new soft-focus, impressionistic “Remembered Landscapes.” The simplified landscapes, which he continues to paint despite losing more and more of his sight to macular degeneration, sometimes turn generic. But the rusty-hues and great clouds billowing over marshes and slivers of shiny water can still evoke a strong autumn mood.
Thomas Sgouros, Providence Art Club, 11 Thomas St., Providence, Sept. 13 to Oct. 2, 2009.
