The Front Street Art Gallery Presents:
"Kathleen Mullins Mogayzel: Natural Elements II”
From Tuesday October 23rd to Sunday November 18th, the Front Street Art Gallery will feature the paintings of invited artist, Kathleen Mullens Mogayzel. A First Friday Reception will be held for this very talented artist on November 2nd from 6 to 8:30 PM. The Driftway Jazz will provide music to encourage browsing and buying.
Kathleen Mullins Mogayzel is a printmaker. She has integrated her graphic design, photography and painting skills into her unique prints. Printmaking offers Kathy exciting methods to express her love of nature’s colors, textures and changing moods of light. She is thrilled by mixing colors to print layers of ink for intense color values and saturation. Some printing plates are made with branches and found treasures that appear along her path. Combining these collograph plates with monoprint backgrounds adds textures in relief and color depth to the prints.
In addition to the brain challenge of planning the images in reverse, there is the thrill of the “aha! moment” that often happens by pulling a print off the press and finding unexpected results. Some prints have passages added in calligraphy as well as collaged ephemera, morphing into the realm of mixed media. South Shore vistas including the Herring River and tidal marshes where she lives, are the primary influence in all her painterly works. Studying with noted area painters in the last few years have added to her interpretations through creamy oils and acrylics or juicy watercolors. Often a bird or two will fly into one of her creations.
Kathleen is a juried artist in the Russell Gallery at the Plymouth Guild. Her work can be seen frequently in shows at North River Arts Society, and Gallery X in New Bedford. Her studio is in an old Rockland MA factory building that is filled with other artists. This is the home of 4th floor artists, inc. for whom she has served as president. She was an art teacher at Dartmouth High School. Kathleen shows her award winning printmaking, mixed media and photography in the many art events and venues in Southeastern Massachusetts.
She received her B.A. in art from Regis College in Weston, MA, and studied graphic arts, painting and printmaking at several institutions. She has studied with established New England artists in various mediums.
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.
