Alexandre Gallery will present a selection of the late Emily Nelligan’s charcoal drawings of the coastal landscape of Maine, together with a single plein-air painting by John Walker. Nelligan traveled to Great Cranberry Island every summer for more than 60 years, producing a body of work that records her deep meditation on a remote, intimately known place. She often made her shadowy, ethereal works at sunrise and dusk, at times obscuring the landscape to the point of abstraction. The Independent presentation will place these drawings in dialogue with Walker’s large-scale view of the Maine shoreline at night, concurrent with his solo exhibition at the gallery’s Grand Street location (April 29 – June 17).
