The avanto, or the hole cut in the pond ice next to a Finnish sauna, has captivated nationally recognized Vermont artist Eric Aho for the last nine years and inspired the ongoing series of paintings titled Ice Cuts. The Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, is delighted to gather together, for the first time, a large group of these works, along with the artist’s related watercolor studies and monotypes. This exhibition provides the opportunity to share in Aho’s extended meditation upon this austere, simple, yet mesmerizing subject. Eric Aho: Ice Cuts is on view from January 9 through March 13, 2016, and programming highlights include an opening artist talk and reception on Friday, January 8, as well as other talks, tours, workshops and family events, and member exclusives.Read More
Eric Aho‘s new painting “Ice House Bright Sun” reflects his interest in the themes of weather, seasonal light, and man’s presence in the vastness of nature. The ice house depicted is on the artist’s property and has appeared in his paintings in all types of weather and at all times of the day and year. Through dynamic brushstrokes and subtle shifts of color, the artist suggests moving shadows and reflecting light, capturing the essence of a bright winter day in this 22×24 inch oil on linen painting. One of the nation’s top contemporary artists painting today, we are pleased to be in the planning stages of Eric Aho‘s sixth solo show at Tory Folliard Gallery to take place in the fall of 2012.
