As winter draws near, it becomes increasingly more difficult for many to complete a day’s work. Daylight grows shorter as the sky darkens and a perpetual chill lingers in the air reminding us that warmth is a gift not to be taken for granted. Yet, though Winter often surrounds us with a palette of grays and nearly unceasing amounts of snow, much beauty can be found in the whispers winter leaves behind. This gathering of works from the FAM’s permanent collection highlights the subtleties of winter and the crystalline hues of light one can witness in the snow. Blue shadows, yellows and oranges from sunsets and sunrises, and dramatic cast shadows stretching out from trees, houses, and snowbanks all remind us of the wonders winter creates. Furthermore, one can see the perseverance undertaken by those surviving in the harsh winter weather and the stillness of the winter landscape that inspires pure moments of reflection.
