Beginning August 13th the New Britain Museum of American Art’s Cheney Gallery will feature Sarah Lamb, the latest artist in the NEW/NOW series. Sarah Lamb is among a younger generation of American painters who carries on the tradition of representational realism. Eighteen of her recent still-lifes and landscapes will be included in her exhibition. Lamb’s work will be on display through October 30, 2011. An opening reception is planned for Thursday, August 18, 5:30-7 p.m. with remarks by the artist at 6 p.m.

Sarah Lamb provides a convincing reassurance that the academic tradition in painting has a continuing vibrancy and relevance today. Her incredibly beautiful paintings are a fusion of classically realistic style with a bold compositional sense. Still-lifes by Lamb recall the tradition of the art of the 18th century French painter, Jean-Baptiste- Simeon Chardin. Her work reveals the beauty of familiar, everyday objects.
