Current Exhibit - “Paul Carley: Images One”
The Front Street Art Gallery Presents:
"Paul Carley: Images One”
From Wednesday February 28th to Sunday March 31st, the Front Street Art Gallery will feature the paintings of invited artist, Paul Carley. A First Friday Reception will be held for this very talented artist on March 1st from 6 to 8 PM. The Driftway Jazz will provide music to encourage browsing and buying.
Paul Carley was lucky when growing up to have a friend whose mother was a member of the Museum of Fine Art, and who exposed him to serious art from elementary through junior high school. After high school, he attended Mass College of Art as a fine arts major. Forced to leave college by life circumstances, he fell into the sign business and discovered that hand-lettering and pictorial work came naturally to him. He has now returned to painting which he calls “still practicing” because he feels a “fine” artist must try different techniques, color combinations and layouts that enables him to be a better artist. It is an endless journey.
He paints with acrylics because of the quick drying time enabling him to work on two or three paintings at a time. His painting subjects are still life, landscape and people/animals. He tries to combine color with a good sense of design and a subject that brings a feeling of whimsy and quirkiness, one that might bring a smile to the viewer. He paints images that are the results of inspiration from life travels, black and white movies, and endless photographs.
Front Street Art Gallery, a juried cooperative gallery of over twenty local artists and artisans, is located at 124 Front Street, Scituate Harbor. Gallery hours are Thursday through Saturday, 11 AM to 5 PM and Sunday 12 to 5PM. The Gallery is closed on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays during January and February.
