Artist Gary Boehk Displays at FPL Art Walk

Local artist, Gary Boehk, has his work on exhibit this month in the Falmouth Public Library Art Walk. Gary has been painting scenes of West Falmouth and the Cape area for many years. He also makes excursions to Provence, France to study and paint. Boehk prefers painting outside because the elements of the environment play a major role in inspiring choices of composition, shapes, and color in his works. He explains that a beautiful landscape is presented by nature in saturated detail, it is up to the artist to make the choices of what to include and what to leave out in the final painting. As the morning or afternoon painting session progresses the dynamics of the scene are changing and the artist must anticipate and finish the painting in the best light, usually a painting takes 3-4 hours.

“Fresh brush strokes and sensitivity to place, color, and light and the harmonious interaction of human and natural elements characterize his plein-air paintings.”
