Serendipity: The Art of Charles Emery Ross 

Three and a half stars
Magdalena Gallery

Charles Emery Ross awakened to his interest in painting relatively late in life, after a long career in advertising. Painting in acrylic, oil or mixed media, he creates canvases that are, in his words, “just short of garish.” Many of his landscape paintings have a psychedelic brightness that has nothing to do with naturalism and everything to do with his interest in color (or, as in the case of some of his abstract work, the lack of it). “Magenta Forest” is colored as advertised. In his straying toward literalism and natural color, however, you will perhaps find his most captivating work. In “Rachel’s Place,” you find a small town on a wide plain under an enormous purple sky. And in “Evening Shadows,” with stunning minimalist effect, he creates the impression of a forest darkening at dusk. Through Oct 30; 317-844-0005,
