2013 Summer Artist Series
Rocky Neck Gallery, 53 Rocky Neck Ave., Gloucester (978-282-0917)
The summer artist series are a season of seven juried exhibitions in the Rocky Neck Gallery at 53 Main Street on Rocky Neck. Artists that participate do not have to be members of the gallery or the Rocky Neck Art Colony. The jury committee selected the following artists to present six 3-week exhibitions.
May 24-June 11 : Brian Murphy, Totally Wired at the Beach
Reception: SAT May 25, 6-8pm
Brian Murphy, wire sculptor
My work can be seen as lighthearted line drawings in the medium of steel wire. Often political and humorous themes are incorporated which can challenge or amuse the viewer leaving them uplifted. The goal of each piece is to create kinetic movement from the tension in the wire so that the figures seem to dance or sway on their own and appear enlivened.
June 11 - July 2: Nella Lush, Nella's Journey
Reception: SUN June 16, 4-6pm
Nella Lush, Rip Tide, oil
Born and educated in Italy, where the Adriatic Sea shaped her artistic career, Nella Lush records the atmospheric moods of the sea, light and sky, and interprets these emotions to canvas. She works mainly with oils, using cold wax as a medium, often adding marble dust to create texture and depth. Her application and scraping away of numerous layers shape the final painting.
July 2 - July 23: Meredith Anderson, Camilla Macfadyen, Beth Williams.
July 23 - August 13 : Brenda Cirioni, Marsh as Metaphor
Reception, Saturday 27, 5-7pm
