A ore n LfULC U HOWU B Svl U " m MO HAT CAN SAVE YOU i Realism Returns To Art Even Barns Become Popular Subjects AP Newsfeatursj Last year Naima Rauam and her husband, Hal Polin, of Green Lake, Maine, were predicting the near demise of "kooky modern art" and a return to realism. They were judging it on the basis of a lull in art buying, a kind of uncertainty on the part of the buyer. They've proved their point. At recent exhibits Naima sold 20 pictures, ranging in price from $250 to $3,800, and Hal did particularly well with his woodblocks. "It was a fantastic season," Naima reports. "One couple bought three of my paintings, including one major one. Hal's woodblocks always do well, but this season he has few left." Barns are very popular art subjects now, probably because they remind people of pleasant memories and something that is disappearing, she said. "Realistic paintings have become so popular this last year, I even sold one to a collector of avant garde art," Naima said happily. She pays "particular attention to the effect of light on forms, more sophisticated than cutesy, nostalgic or just attractive scenes," a sort of photo realism that is carefully composed and brings certain elements together to create a mood. She doesn't "render nature," but uses the elements, light, color and textur-al relationships "to achieve basic emotional and visual truths," she explained Her favorite paintings are her big ones - beautiful scenery, mountains, lakes, great vistas, farm houses or a tractor. For the last five summers the two have shown their art at the James Hunt Barker Gallery in Nantucket, Mass., where they are artists-in-residewe and live in a little apartment over the gallery garage. They "mind" the gallery for three months, greeting exhibitors and visitors. Naima sends out invitations and acts as cletk, package wrapper and "picker-upper" of people at the airport. Being at the gallery has many advantages, besides providing a change in scenery, the couple said. They are around their mam love - art They can communicate with many other artists, and they can absorb comments of visitors. In the fall, they return to their farmhouse and 30 acres of Maine woods - an inspirational life, they say. The large studio there is quite different irom their former studio, a lull m the tur district of New Yolk, where they lived until five years ago. "It was a wonderfully energetic atmosphere," Naima said. "But we found ourselves making frequent forays into the countryside so we moved " llal woiks m various media, but Ins polychrome woodblocks are unusual because he uses an old Japanese technique of print making. Companies Planning Expansion KW YORK UTli - Four of every five ihlef executives of US. corporations say they plan capital expansion programs next year, according to the Gallagher Presidents' Report The report said its study of .'530 top corporations showed capital outlays will jump 24.4 per cent to an average $11 2 million per firm in 1977. By this figuring, total outlays would come to more than $.'1 ti billion. More than half of the chief executives said they plan to spend money on new facilities and equipment The expansion programs will generate an average of 280 new jobs for each firm, the report said. The report said the company heads may have to pull back on their expansion plans next year, if the threat of a renewed Arab oil embargo becomes a reality. Gallagher found that only about one-third of the firms had a workable emergency energy plan to fall back on, should fuel supplies be cut.
