ALEXANDRA TYNG: MAINE coming soon to the Fischbach Gallery

Rocks II, Indian Island, oil on board, 9" x 12"

A little bit of Maine will be coming to NYC soon, in the form of my new solo show at the Fischbach Gallery. This will be purely a landscape show. If you are curious about my work process, this exhibition will give you some idea of how I work, because you will see small plein air oil sketches right on up to very large studio paintings including some aerial panoramas. For those of you who missed seeing Right Here in Maine last August, this will be a good opportunity to see at least some of that work, and if you did make it up to Rockland, there will be some new work in this show.

The Errand, oil on linen, 40" x 50"

Hope you can make it to the opening! Lots of Chelsea galleries are open on the third Thursday of every month, so you can visit several, go out to dinner, and make an evening of it.

Reception: Thursday, March 22, 5-7 p.m.
The Fischbach Gallery
210 11th Ave., at 25th Street, NY, NY 10001
