Paintings by artist Jim Condron will be on display in the Annex Gallery at The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation Arts Center of the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus March 10 - April 8.

Jim Condron's palette centers on trees and rocks, emphasizing light and changing light that captures a more immaterial vision. His tightly cropped paintings seem to be more about light and temperature than about landscape. At the Red Door Gallery in Richmond, Va., where Condron has exhibited his work, a catalog essay describes Condron's approach as "painting ordinary objects in his everyday environment with an eye that both affirms their presence and strips them of their materiality. But what at first might seem a deliberate estrangement of the familiar is in fact an entirely different project: an engagement with his subjects so intimate that it becomes impersonal." Of his own work, Condron says: "Painting is for me a simultaneous act of outer and inner contemplation. The landscape is my subject, but is more importantly a means for self discovery.
