The next Studio M exhibition at the Massillon Museum, “Picturing Light: The Paintings of Richard Vaux,” will be on view from Aug. 17 through Oct. 6. The opening reception on Saturday, Aug. 17 from 5:30-8 p.m. will be free and open to everyone. No reservations are needed.

The artist’s acrylic-on-vinyl artwork uses light and abstract construction of space to create immersive impressionist paintings.

“My work is an ongoing process, one composition leading to the next. In searching for the harmonies and balances of nature, the works parallel and emulate natural phenomena. With each painting there is a new sense of harmony with nature, a coordination and synthesis of the physical and the spiritual. Each composition is a visual poem about light and illumination, the visible and the invisible,” Vaux said.

A Hudson, Ohio resident, Vaux earned a BFA at Miami University in Ohio and an MFA from Northern Illinois University and is professor emeritus at Adelphi University in Garden City, New York.

The paintings of Vaux have been exhibited in dozens of solo and group exhibitions internationally. He is represented in galleries across the United States and in Japan, and his artwork is included in public and private collections throughout the world.

In addition to “Picturing Light” in Studio M, guests on Aug. 17 can visit other MassMu exhibitions: “A Heritage of Harvest: The Industry of Agriculture in Western Stark County” in the Aultman Health Foundation Gallery, “125 Years of the Greatest High School Rivalry” and “Evolution of the Football Jersey” in the Paul Brown Museum, “Accessible Expressions Ohio” in the Fred F. Silk Community Room Gallery, and “The Immel Circus,” always on view. Braille text has been incorporated into the “Accessible Expressions” exhibition, courtesy of Clovernook Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
