Love may be fleeting, but the image is eternal. The work of West Virginia-born painter Mary Chiaramonte captures the elusive transience of that crazy little thing called love in her new show, “Love Song,” opening Friday, Feb. 14, from 7-9 p.m. at the Eric Schindler Gallery. Chiaramonte’s paintings and drawings are a mix of the stoic neoclassicism found in German painter Franz Xaver Winterhalter’s aristocratic portraiture and the crispness of Milo Manara’s science fiction-based eroticism, living in the middle ground between fact and fiction. Her use of line, color and composition captures the chimerical states of her subjects with a clearly defined, pellucid sense of purpose that leaves room for interpretation. Romantic dream states for reality-based, emotional living, “Love Song” is available for viewing Wednesdays through Saturdays, 11 a.m to 5 p.m., until March 8. ericschindlergallery.com.
