Reflection - the art of Jane Adriance and Debbie Pisacreta

 "Reflection"
Featuring
Jane Adriance
and
Debbie Pisacreta


November 5 - December 6, 2020

The Pandemic, and the resulting quarantine, forced each of us to be isolated more. For Jane Adriance and Debbie Pisacreta, this was a time of quiet reflection which affected the kind of paintings they produced, and the emotions they felt when painting.

"The title of this exhibit seems very fitting for me," said Jane. "Since last March with the pandemic 'shut down' and my isolation I needed to stop and reflect about the life I had taken for granted. While life seemed so sad and frightening to so many others as well as myself ... I discovered a silver lining. In my appreciation for being alive, I followed a dream (with no excuses now) to return to the sensual use of painting with oils. I had been painting with watercolors for many decades. I was ready for this challenge and new perspective.

I am hoping you will enjoy my first exhibit of these oil paintings as much as I am grateful to have opened this door for me again."

Debbie has always found her inspiration and joy from plein air painting, but that joy was heightened during this last six months. "I was fortunate that I could continue to paint Plein air while still maintaining social distancing. Painting was a respite from all of the sadness and anxiety surrounding the Pandemic and its effects. It gave me a chance to feel peace and to be grateful for the beauty of my surroundings.

I am hopeful that that feeling of serenity is translated to the viewer."

Environments - the art of Michael Schweigart and Maxine Shore

 "Environments"
Featuring
Michael Schweigart
and
Maxine Shore


September 10 - October 4, 2020


Michael Schweigart and Maxine Shore could not be more different in their approach to painting the landscape, but their impact together is dynamic. Maxine's bold color harmonies excite the senses and her geometric shapes and light patterns create complex compositions. Michael's palette is subtle with natural muted tones of light and shadow and a sharp focus on detail.

"Environments" brings together the best of both styles and you know what they say, "opposites attract".

Landscapes We See - the art of Heather Barros and Bill Jersey

"Landscapes We See"
featuring
Heather Barros
and
Bill Jersey

August 6 - September 6, 2020

Heather Barros and Bill Jersey train their eye upon an inhabited landscape, albeit a landscape momentarily void of inhabitants. We understand that this is a populated environment because we see traces of human endeavor - paths, bridges, buildings, and the like. Neither artist obligates her or himself to a literal representation, and both are willing to edit an element whenever it benefits her or his composition. Thus both paint expressively. Yet each sees in a very different way. This allows us, as viewers, to better appreciate how perception is diffracted through the lens of creativity.

Bill Jersey
"New Blossoms Old Limbs"
oil on canvas  


Bill Jersey paints more boldly, generally on larger canvases and with a surreal palette. His color choices may be grounded in reality, but what we see is the product of an inspired imagination.

Heather Barros
"Sourlands Uphill"
oil on canvas


Heather Barros paints on a more intimate, human scale. While her canvases vary in size, with several comparable to those of Bill Jersey's, their feeling is entirely different. For her, landscape is a metaphor for her surroundings as much as it is a state of mind.
