The Gregory James Gallery in New Milford is presenting an exhibit of more than 40 new and recent landscape paintings by Connecticut artist Jim Laurino through Dec. 8.

A demonstration with the artist will be held Nov. 16 at 5 p.m.

Laurino, who studied design and color theory at the University of Connecticut, paints en plein air in a bold representational style, producing evocative scenes of rivers, lakes, seascapes, woodlands, farms, historic buildings and other iconic scenes in the Northeast.

His compositions appear almost photographic from a vantage point of eight to 10 feet.

The artist is inspired by the thick brushstrokes of Van Gogh, and by the Impressionists, notably American artists Childe Hassam and Theodore Robison.
