Current Exhibit - “Art in Bloom: the Sights and Sounds of Spring”
The Front Street Art Gallery Presents:
"Art in Bloom: the Sights and Sounds of Spring”
The Front Street Art Gallery, 124 Front Street, Scituate Harbor, is bringing the spring blooming season indoors with its exhibit, “Art in Bloom: the Sights and Sounds of Spring.” Gallery artists will be filling the walls with works inspired by landscapes, tablescapes, or floral works plus live floral arrangements and poetry; anything that says, “Spring!” Take home a touch of spring or a work that extends your garden into your home or a piece that compliments your decor.
The show opens on Tuesday, April 30th and runs through Sunday, May 26th with a First Friday Reception on May 3rd from 6 to 8:30 PM.
Candace Clark, one of the Gallery artists, learned freehand bronze, stenciling, theorem painting, primitive painting, and reverse painting on glass as well as other techniques from her mother-in-law, a Master Craftsman Antique Decorator. She found these processes exacting and somewhat restrictive. Looking for more freedom in her painting, she tried oil painting, monoprinting, computer graphics, abstract painting, and encaustic. For the last few years, Candace has studied watercolor with Mary Beth LoPiccolo.
Currently, she is enjoying the challenge of watercolor on Yupo paper which gives a luminous and somewhat abstract quality to her paintings.
Mary BethLoPiccolo, a graduate the Philadelphia College of Art, is experienced in both Commercial and Fine Arts. Her studies continued on arrival in Massachusetts with Jack Callahan and Constance Flavell Pratt. She soon became involved in the SAA where she has been an active member for well over a decade. Over time Mary has focused on watercolor where she has found that with repeated practice, fingers dancing on the canvas like a pianist on the keys, she can weave both experience and the subconscious to create an organic whole. Mary continues to work in both the commercial and fine art worlds. She finds that the strong draftsmanship and design of commercial art merge with the spiritual perspective of fine arts to create a truly inspirational and satisfying work.
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 Wednesday through Saturday, 11 AM to 5 PM and Sunday 12 to 5PM. The Gallery is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
