Illuminations of Night and Day
New works in oil by Maryalice Eizenberg and Jonathan McPhillips
Sparkling moonlight on the bay, morning sun on fresh blooms, golden rays through a window, the glow of faces in a campfire. The skillful works of Eizenberg and McPhillips shown together — night and day, inside and out; a surprisingly distinctive range of approaches to light in art.

Painting East Orleans
Plein Air Painting
Plein air, French for “open air," is used to describe paintings created outdoors. French Impressionists, including Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, advocated en plein air painting. Charles Webster Hawthorne, who is attributed with starting the art colony in Provincetown, came to Cape Cod to teach painting en plein air.

We hope you can join us for this special plein air event. Adults and children alike are enthralled by seeing a painting move from a sketch to a finished piece, and delighted to meet so many accomplished artists.

   
Saturday, June 13
5:00 to 7:00
 
Plein Air Painting Reception
Works by the participating artists can be found in museums, corporations, U.S. Embassies, and in private collections throughout the Americas, Europe and in Asia. We hope you and your friends will be able to join us to meet the artists and discover their still wet works.

"Vistas and Vignettes: A Dialog with Color and Light”
New works by Robert Abele and Cynthia Reid

Hans Hoffman said, "In nature, light creates the color; in the picture, color creates light." In "Vistas and Vignettes: A Dialog with Color and Light," Abele and Reid both use color to create light -- light on the side of a building, in a field of wildflowers, on the surface of a pond, at the ocean's edge, or on an intimate bird nest.

Painting plein air, Abele responds to the changing effects of light, capturing its nuances and shifts with line and color. His muse is the gentle New England coast. In "Highland Light Truro Dusk," the play of complementary colors lets one feel the warmth of the late light at dusk.

Influenced by the Southwest light of her adopted Tucson home, Reid uses palette knives to paint the color of light with texture. Her joyful use of color can be seen on the barn walls of "Sunny Farm" and the vibrant red poppies in "Color in Spring."

Whether showing the contrasting light on a cottage or a path through the woods, Abele and Reid expressively use the magic of color to create light in both this vistas and vignettes.

Olivier Suire Verley, Addison Art Gallery, Cape Cod
Olivier Suire Verley
One Man Show Reception

"Olivier Suire Verley is a solar painter, craving for the vast spectacle of life and eager to discover new atmospheres, new sceneries: in each of them, he finds a teaching and, as an alchemist, transmutes it in nuggets of pure joy for our eye and mind.

Served by a masterly craftsmanship, this captivating stance allows Olivier to transport us in a universe of ochres, yellows, and reds mixed with subtle dark nuances — never black! asserted with an evident pleasure: volumes and light captivate, trouble and reassure us, all at the same time. Colorful figures stand in the center or merely cross the painting, dreamlike, unreal, but every one of them a strong presence.” — © Antoine Moissac
