Abstract-minded

New Zealand-inspired prints by American artist and solarplate expert Dan Welden feature in an exhibition at Adelphi University, Garden City, with some of the paintings evoking those of Colin McCahon. Both artists use abstraction to infuse representations of the landscape with a spiritual element. Thirty works by the Sag Harbor painter and printmaker include his visions of the meadows and forests of New Zealand. Welden has previously held print workshops at Kerikeri’s Wharepuku Print Studio.
