Summer Exhibition: Thomas Henry Gallery, Nantucket

As the summer rolls along, I wanted to update you that I have five pieces currently on Nantucket with the Thomas Henry Gallery for their summer exhibition. I’m new to Paul Copson’s assortment, so if you are on the island, stop by his place to see!

15 Centre Street, Nantucket, MA

The work on view include the follow pieces:

Paul is a wonderful man, and has quite a story about how his career came about in the art world, starting out as a lighthouse keeper. I’m so fortunate to gotten to know him and be invited to show this summer with his group of very talented artists. Three of the works including “Morning Break”, “Amplified”, and “Nantucket Sound, #3” are island based paintings if you are in the market to bring part of the island surf home.

Hope you can stop by while in town and avoiding the heat!

Cheers.

Jess Hurley Scott: Trinity Collection show EXTENDED through September!

I’ve been so busy working I’ve had really ZERO time to post, but I wanted to share that my Nantucket show at Trinity Collection has been extended! I’ll have my work there showing through the end of September! It has been a great experience so far and looking forward to spending some more time out on the island! If you are out on the island to enjoy a little early fall and haven’t yet gotten a chance to see, stop by 50 Main Street and say ‘heeeyyy’!

While the heat has finally broken, it seems real Fall weather is still not here yet so I’ll be in the water getting new stuff as much as I can! Hopefully we’ll get a few storms to blow some rollers our way soon!

Canvas Studies

I had been posting on Instagram about a series of canvases I had been working on. They were in part an idea for a friend’s wedding and an exercise in loosening up at a large scale. I got a lot of great feedback on them so I wanted to share them as a whole. They are each 36 x 48″ framed in black, flush mount, solid hardwood frame.

The last of the series, Minot Tide, will be on view at the South Shore Art Center’s 60th Arts Festival June 19th-21st.

The first and third of the series, “Nantucket Sound, #3” and “Cisco” respectively, have already been SOLD.

Not what I normally do, but it was great to shake things up and work in canvas for a bit!

Cheers!

New Painting: Illumination (at the South Shore Arts Festival)

While I’m working on a number of larger paintings, I have a recent new small scale piece that was accepted in the 60th South Shore Arts Festival Juried Show coming up June 19th, 20th & 21st. It is 5″ x 13″ and is acrylic paint on three separate panels of acrylic.

The reference for the work was an evening at Cisco beach in Nantucket. This piece is all about light and the translucency of water and I loved how the waves were back lit that day. I’m looking forward to doing more (and larger!) pieces in this vein.

The Art Festival is on Cohasset Common among many other artists and artisans. It’s Father’s Day weekend too so bring your dad! I’m working on a number of new pieces so will update soon!

Cheers!
