Charles Stockbridge, one of the featured artists in the show, blossomed under the mentoring of Richard Michael Gibney of Rockport, MA. A lifelong relationship began and Gibney’s belief that, as an artist, one should work in as many mediums as possible are reflected in Copello’s work. This philosophy applies to subject matter as well and Dick’s broad range of thematic choices including wildlife and birds, still-life, landscapes, seascapes, nudes, portraits, and architectural. Dick currently has devoted time to his other passions: fine woodworking, wood carving, stone carving, stained glass, poetry, music and gardening. Philosophically, he feels that an artist’s life is enriched by the pursuance of the creation of beauty in any medium or form.
Stockbridge’s representational work covers historical scenes, the study and recreation of harbor portraits and sailing crafts. His contemporary paintings focus on waterfront, beachfront and classic catboats, sloops and working craft of the New England waters. He enjoys painting Cape Cod & the Islands, Maine and Coastal Massachusetts scenes. Utilizing a traditional palette, Charles endeavors to create luminous skies and the sublime poetry of God’s work.
Stockbridge is the past president of the Scituate Arts Association and former director of the Front Street Art Gallery. He exhibits his work at the Front Street Gallery, Gallery 333 in North Falmouth and Plymouth Guild/Russell Gallery. He has received many honors including best representational painting, Plymouth 42nd Annual Show, American Society of Marine Artists New England museum tour and member and recently, top honor at the Pembroke Arts Festival. His work is held in collections in North America and Europe.
