The distinctive plein air art of Norman Turner is on display at Unison Arts & Learning Center through March 27, in an exhibition serving as a memorial for the artist, who died in March 2015.
Turner was known for scenes with bracing, geometric brushstrokes painted in vibrant colors. He sometimes built images out of several canvases to communicate a scene’s dynamic features. Less than a dozen of his large paintings are on display, along with some on-site drawings — his big canvases and bold colors need space.
“By the River,” by Norman Turner, 45 1/2 x 48 1/2 in.
