One of our featured artists, Janet Cornacchio, paints in vibrant watercolor with a style that heads toward expressionism and abstraction. She focuses on flowers and birds because of her love of gardening. Working in the garden and studying backyard birds have resulted in an innate understanding of her flowers and the garden’s avian visitors. Good form and design are important, but of paramount interest to her is color: intense, subtle, flowing or controlled. Whether revealing the richness of an apple, the tilt of a bird’s head or the delicacy of a daffodil, color fascinates. Its variety abounds within even a single water drop or rose petal.
Dorothy Pentheny, also a featured Gallery artist, creates glimpses into the world around us through her oil paintings. Painting en plein air directly from life allows her to capture an authentic expression of her subject. The ever changing sunlight of each day and hour creates a unique spectrum of colors reflected in the forms and space in view. The experience of painting outdoors pulls into the artwork a full expression of the entire environment: the sound of children playing, song birds and seagulls calling out overhead, and the meditative rhythm of the crashing waves at the beach. Not just the sights, but also the sounds, smells and the feel of the air all go into a painting.
The Front Street Art Gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 11 to 5 and on Sundays from Noon to 5. For questions and information contact the Gallery at 781-545-6150.
