With more than 30 major paintings, the exhibition follows Aho on his artistic journey from dramatic images of the New England landscape to energetic, freely brushed abstract compositions inspired by his responses to nature.

Aho grew up in Hudson, NH and now lives just across the border in Saxtons River, Vermont. In the tradition of English painters like John Constable and the French Impressionists, Aho began sketching and painting out of doors using New England’s mountain vistas and rural valleys as his subjects. His early paintings capture dramatic effects of weather and sunlight in a muted pallet, while his more recent paintings are monumental in scale and employ bold colors. Aho will lead a Master Class at the Currier Art Center (June 9-10), which will be a two-day intensive studio class for professional and vocational artists looking to advance their skills.
