Upper Valley artist Jo Tate is exhibiting at the OSHER Gallery at 7 Lebanon Street in Hanover NH. Her fans (I am among them) will see some familiar pieces like her Tuscany landscapes amid newer works. The paintings of the boxers, below, particularly drew me in. You don’t need to be an actual boxer to experience the contrast between those moments full of fight followed by ones of fatigued repose.

She has work in private collections and loves doing animal portraits.
You can view this exhibition during business hours through June 28.
