SAILING INTO SALT—“AD Tinkham is a born old master that lives quietly among us in the purity of his artistic integrity,” says writer and painter Annie Dillard, friend and collector of the acclaimed painter’s work. “Running Home” (30”X40,” oil on canvas) is one of several paintings to be revealed in a special preview on Saturday, May 7th from 6pm-8pm at SALT Gallery at SALT Island Provisions on 830 Fleming Street. The exhibit— “A Sailing Life”— will feature new paintings showcasing the fluency of his marine landscapes that often emphasize a contradiction between serenity and danger in a way that is moving, accessible, and intelligent. Tinkham’s exhibit will run until June 6th. For more information, call 305.896.2980 or visit ADTinkham.com.
