Upcoming Show - "Stockbridge: Soul of the Sea”
From October 23rd to November 24th, the Front Street Art Gallery will feature works by well-known Gallery member Charles w. Stockbridge with a November First Friday Reception on November 1st from 6 to 8:30 PM.
Stockbridge, a marine Artist, formerly of Scituate now residing in Mattapoisett, is a self-taught artist and classically trained student of history and antiquity. His inspirations, the American Hudson River School and Luminist painters of the 19th century, especially Martin Johnson Heade, Fitz Henry Lane and Mauritz Frederick DeHaas, speak to him and their work guides his independent style. Charles has had the honor of painting with the contemporary masters, William Davis and Sergio Roffo.
Stockbridge’s representational works cover historical scenes, the recreation of harbor portraits and sailing craft. His contemporary paintings focus on the waterfront and classic catboats, sloops and working craft of the New England waters. He enjoys painting Cape Cod and the Islands, Maine and Coastal Massachusetts scenes. Utilizing a traditional palette, Charles creates luminous skies and the sublime poetry of God’s work.
Stockbridge, a past president of the Scituate Arts Association and former director of the Front Street Art Gallery, continuously exhibits his work at the Front Street Gallery, Gallery 333 in North Falmouth, Plymouth Guild/Russell Gallery and Louisa Gould Gallery, Vineyard Haven. His honors include best representational painting, Plymouth 42nd Annual Show, American Society of Marine Artists New England Museum, and top honor at the Pembroke Arts Festival.
