KURT SOLMSSEN, Tatistcheff, 50 West Street, (212) 664-0907 (through Wednesday). Using wide, generously loaded brushes and rich, bright colors, this artist, based in Washington State, creates appealing traditionalist weddings of painterly materialism and radiant illusionism. Children make watercolors on a sunlight-drenched porch, for example, or a yellow rowboat viewed from above floats at the edge of a green lawn (Johnson).
