SIRENS is a group show featuring three female artists. The artists, all local, are exhibiting artwork that focuses on the sea, the life systems within it and its dynamic coast line. Each artist is exhibiting a different medium: Gretchen Greene sculpts with steel and bronze, Michele Lauriat creates mixed media paintings on paper, and Jess Hurley Scott paints on multi-layered Plexiglas. The thematic yet diverse exhibition will portray the beauty, chaos and life-force of the ocean.

 

Gretchen Greene “paints with heat,” and “carves with lightning”; she sculpts bronze and steel intuitively with a plasma cutter, die grinder, angle grinder and TIG welder. The metal, malleable while she is working, is cut, marked and sculpted into waves, corals, and kelp evoking memories of locations and times past. Seeking the limits of her tools and materials, Greene creates large scale wall reliefs, unique furniture and small table top sculptures. A suite of small works will be on display at the RSM Art Gallery for the SIRENS exhibit.

 

Michele Lauriat paints locations she experiences through work, vacation and in between. Her York Beach Series, on display in the SIRENS exhibition, is inspired by annual summer trips to the beautiful Maine coast. “The interaction of pattern, order, design, chaos, and the push of organic systems, direct [her] attention and mark making.” Lauriat captures moments of interest with onsite sketches and photography which she explores further in the studio by enlarging, abstracting and combining the scenes. The results are dynamic mixed media watercolors full of gesture, pattern and color. This is the second exhibition of Michele Lauriat’s artwork at the RSM Art Gallery. Her works are also in the firm’s collection.

 

Jess Hurley Scott is a contemporary seascape painter.  Scott’s process begins with a wetsuit and camera; she captures waves first hand in sun and storm, warmth and winter. Her dimensional paintings consist of layers of individually painted acrylic panels and deal with light, illusion, and perception.  Scott plays with the intricacies of the natural world, digital technology, and translucency in her work. The result is bold realism and a unique interpretation of seascape in “paint and pane.” Her scale ranges from near miniature scale vignettes to dramatic, sweeping seascapes. A range of sizes will be on display at the RSM Art Gallery.

 

Founded in 2002, the RSM Art Gallery focuses on thematic group exhibitions of local artists. Quarterly exhibitions are curated by Christina Godfrey of Sunne Savage Gallery. For each exhibition, RSM Art Gallery partners with a non-profit organization who receives 20% of sales during the exhibition.  

Proceeds from the SIRENS exhibition will be donated to the RSM Boston Foundation.

Marine Arts Gallery, October 13th – November 5th- Extended!

Update!, My work being exhibited at The Marine Arts Gallery in Marblehead, MA is being extended a few weeks!

The 47 year established gallery is in a new, year-old space after selling their former property to the Peabody Essex Museum for their major expansion. There is quite a range of my work being shown including some of my largest pieces, at close to 3′ x 4′, to small works and studies at 6″ x 6″.

This has been my first exhibition on the North Shore and so far it has been a fantastic experience! We had a very successful opening night on the 13th with great responses and reactions, not to mention getting to know some of the local art community. The gallery has a high caliber group of regional artists and it has so far been wonderful to work with them.

While some work has sold, there is still plenty to see (more than 20 pieces) if you are in the Salem/Marblehead area. I’m not sure exactly the closing date as it may depend on the wee babe, but will keep you posted!
