Will Klemm is well known locally as well as nationally for his ethereal and light-focused landscapes. This show includes grids of nine such paintings, introducing an element of storytelling new to Klemm’s work. The small paintings began as individual experiments, exploring technique, subject matter and composition. As the works literally stacked up in Klemm’s studio, he noticed a conversation between them and began to combine and recombine them into grids to create a visual dialogue. When he ended up with nine grids, Klemm recalled J.D. Salinger’s 1953 collection of short fiction called Nine Stories, which is how the show got its name.

The exhibition will remain on display through November 28. The gallery is open by appointment only.
