Upcoming Show - "Perceptions: As You See It!"
October 1st to October20th,
The Front Street Art Gallery will be a mysterious and delightful place from October 1st to October 20th filled with artists’ perceptions of all that is natural or supernatural. The walls will be filled with works on different papers; collages that use all types of materials; abstract paintings that will stretch the mind; and photos that have a different take on the world. First Friday reception will be held on October 4th from 6 to 8:30 PM. Come to the Gallery and let your imagination take over!
Judi Getch Brodman, an engineer by trade, produces paintings that are strong and vibrant, sharing with the viewer her love and enthusiasm for watercolors; they also reflect her love of the ocean brought on by spending her summers in Wellfleet (Cape Cod) and now her winters in Highland Beach, Florida where she coaches a local painting group. Her passion is bright sunshine, dark contrasts from the shadows, the feel of warm summer sunshine, long winter shadows, the vivid purples and blues of late winter days and cold winter water. She tries to include a building or structure in her paintings, attributing this quirk to her math background that adds a 3-D feel to the painting. She paints in watercolors because they are unpredictable, a quality that scares a lot of artists, but one that she finds irresistible. She loves that the paint takes on a life of its own causing bleeds, drops, streams, all attainable only in watercolors.
Janet L. Cornacchio grew up with two artists in the family. After graduate school, the call of “fine arts” could no longer be ignored by her. She paints in vibrant watercolor with a style that tends toward abstraction and expressionism. She focuses on flowers and birds because of her love of gardening. Her journey from parental influence through college art history study and her work with local artists now resonates in her work. Good form and design are important, but of paramount interest is color: intense, subtle, flowing or controlled. Color tells the story. 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.
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.
