Fruit of the vines


 "Sky Vines" (oil), by JAMIE YOUNG, in her show at Dedee Shattuck Gallery, in Westport, Mass., through Aug. 24.


The gallery notes say that  "Young seeks to capture the feeling of a place and the quality of light rather than creating a formal representational landscape painting, embedded in her images of flora are observations of climate change. Her works are energized and gestural, representing the passion with which she captures the beauty of her surroundings. She is particularly attracted to wild vines enveloping leafy trees, bows dipping into rippling rivers, and sunlight shimmering on foliage.''
