Charles A. Riley II reviews works by Ro Lohin and Kevin Wixted on view at South Street Gallery in Greenport, New York through August 22, 2016.

Riley writes: "Lohin’s paintings capitalize on the high-frequency carom of sunlight from L.I. Sound and Peconic Bay. It blasts through the spectrum of her palette, which seems to include essentially every color made." He adds that in Wixted's paintings "the jaunty rapport of boldly delineated forms is reminiscent of [Stuart] Davis, as well as later Color Field artists. Intimate details demand an extended look."
