Landscape Paintings

Anold Levine is a landscape painter in the classic mold. His work is extraordinary for its attention to brushwork, color and tonality. His work speaks of a spiritual side to the artist, even if the artist himself does not emphasize this point. Levine is a Poughkeepsie native who has lived and painted on the east and west coasts and the southwest. He has lived and worked in many places, from Italy to Vietnam, but always returned to the Hudson Valley, which he considers his home.

A professional painter for more than thirty years, he continues to experiment and grow as an artist. He began his career as an Abstract Expressionist, moving to watercolorist, traditional plein air landscapist, to expressionist stylist in his journey of self-expression. He has taught painting at colleges and universities in Illinois, California, Arizona, and New York. Levine is currently working on a new series of regional landscapes whose sensibility is more akin to genre painting - not the grand vistas or obvious regional scenes but the short-distance, out-of-the-way places.

Besides many solo and group shows in galleries on both coasts, he has exhibited at the National Academy of Design, NYC; the Albany Institute of History and Art; The Butler Institute; The Sheldon Swope Museum, Terre Haute, IN; Vassar College Art Museum; Northern Arizona University; SUNY, New Paltz, NY.  Among his awards are a MacDowell Fellowship, the Western Connecticut State University Painting Award, Northern Arizona University Purchase Award, and - most recently - an Artist-in-residence at the International School of Art in Umbria, Italy. He has been a primary artist at our gallery for over 10 years.
