"Quiet Spaces" recent works by Gail Bracegirdle and Debbie Pisacreta

"Quiet Spaces"
recent works by
Gail Bracegirdle
Debbie Pisacreta

May 4 - June 4, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday May 13, 4-8 pm 

Both Gail and Debbie's paintings evoke a quiet and calm feeling where the choice of subjects and the use of muted palettes contribute to the sense of contemplation and reflection that both artists feel when they paint.

Gail Bracegirdle's watercolors are filled with light and color. She prefers to work from life or from sketches made on location in order to observe the effects of direct and reflected light and shadow on her subject. Gail's goal in painting is "to capture the illusion of movement or sound, a quiet moment, a momentary pleasure, an intriguing juxtaposition of images, light and shadow."

Debbie Pisacreta also works directly from life. A plein-air landscape painter from Lambertville, her oil paintings depict the gentleness of the town, the river, and the surrounding farms. Debbie says "I paint on location as much as possible and often make multiple sketches and studies for my painting until I feel I have captured my emotional connection with the scene. My goal is to create a visual story that communicates the feeling of that place and time."
