Dowling Walsh Gallery exhibiting Bo Bartlett and Tollef Runquest

“Outside this Room…” by Bo Bartlett

Dowling Walsh Gallery in Rockland is exhibiting “Bo Bartlett: Love and Other Sacraments” and the work of Tollef Runquest through July 27. For nearly three decades, artist Bo Bartlett has been celebrated as one of the best contemporary realist painters in America. Dividing his time between island homes and studios on both coasts, Bartlett creates distinctive, hauntingly beautiful paintings that reflect his deep appreciation for living close to nature, and his fascination with discovering the mysterious in the everyday. In Runquest’s artist statement, he says, “Painting for me is an undertaking of appreciation and inquiry. It is a means by which to engage the beauty and mystery of visual experience in an ongoing dialogue.” For more information visit
