Every summer, the Attleboro Arts Museum presents a group show called 8 Visions, featuring eight pieces each by eight arts who responded to a national call. As expected, some visions are a little more interesting than others, but the format works well with the museum’s ground floor gallery space. Highlights include Wilson Hunt, whose abstracted paintings suggest either floral arrangements or sea detritus, all rendered in a strangely appealing color palette that screams early nineties – dark teals and magentas and all. (It’s funny because I had the same reaction to a different painter at this same exhibit last year.) Most of the work centers around the natural world in some way: Attleboro resident Tracey Maroni’s chilly landscapes are a highlight, as are the cave painting inspired works of Warren’s Betty Harrington.
