Lanning Gallery in Sedona, Arizona kicks off its autumn season by welcoming landscape artist Marshall Noice to town and unveiling his newest paintings as well as showcasing the hand-turned wood vessels of artist Robert Cherry.

The colorful representations of hills and trees, valleys, rivers and the occasional barn that fill the canvases of Marshall Noice are the joyful epitome of Expressionistic landscapes. Literal interpretation is never the point; capturing the very spirit of the land in all its glory most definitely is the point. "My paintings are made in response to things I see in the natural world," Marshall Noice notes. "They capture a place at a particular time. And they capture a moment in my sensibility."

The subjects that appear on canvas are only part of each painting's challenge and goal for Marshall Noice. It is their interpretation through line and form, color, and analogous or complimentary color that equal the subject matter in relevance for this artist. He often chooses palettes that other artists would run from, succeeding enthusiastically with marrying related colors in versions of themselves that create excitement and surprise. Skill with color is the true gift of Marshall Noice and it serves him well, as he notes, "Sometimes [for example] you have to add a dissonant color to the palette to make one color settle down and behave." It is the joyful saturated colors and abstracted elements of Marshall Noice paintings (and his smaller pastel works) that are so recognizable to his loyal collectors.

Robert Cherry can also boast a burgeoning number of collectors for his hand-turned pine vessels. These elegant pieces always succeed in catching the eye of gallery goers; at first glance, and often second glance too, they appear to be made of glass, so fine are their surfaces. Beginning with fallen wood chosen for its desirable "defects," Robert Cherry roughs out each "blank" then allows each to dry to a 10-15% moisture content before skillfully completing his final shape, a process that involves working interiors through only small top openings. A variety of colorations are added and the natural gaps in the wood are filled with turquoise before each is coated with several layers of carefully applied resin. The result is true hand-hewn elegance. "Landscape and Wood: Marshall Noice and Robert Cherry" runs through October 11th.
