Jonathan McPhillips graduated from Connecticut College in 1993 with a Cum Laude Distinction in Fine Art. Working equally in the studio and on location, his work includes the harbors, beaches, vessels, and architecture of our coastal marine environment—a celebration of coastal New England.
Recent accomplishments include multiple awards in juried shows at the Salmagundi Club, NY, NY and the achievement of signature status in The American Impressionists Society. Jonathan continues to be invited by the U.S. Department of State to participate in the “Art in Embassies” program which has sent his work to U.S. embassies around the globe.
“Each painting is a problem to solve, or a puzzle to piece together; a playful, yet serious endeavor, and a celebration of our surroundings. There is no greater reward than knowing that a painting has captivated a friend or a stranger. We see many things everyday with heightened digital clarity, yet original artwork always conveys a sense of mystery and magic for all. I see painting as an unspoken and unwritten way to connect our hearts and minds through depictions of shared experience.” Jonathan McPhillips
Paul Schulenburg is an internationally collected artist whose work has shown in the Hopper House Museum, twice in solo shows at the Cape Cod Museum of Art, and in many group exhibitions at CCMA, Provincetown Art Association and Museum, and Cahoon Museum of American Art. He has appeared over a dozen times in respected national art publications including the cover of American Art Collector.
He will be at the gallery to meet with collectors from 11:00am to 1:00pm and from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.
Schulenburg won the Patrons’ Choice Award at the Copley Society of Art, multiple awards at the prestigious Salmagundi Club in NYC, and was awarded a month long residency at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown MA. He is juried member of Oil Painters of America. In 1987 he was commissioned by the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum to create a portrait of museum trustee Eliot Forbes.
For 20 years, Paul created award-winning art for publication worldwide. His client list included: Digital Equipment Corporation, Cigna, Fidelity Investments, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Lucent Technologies, Sunoco, TIME, U.S. News and World Report, The Wall Street Journal, Columbia Journalism Review, Cahners, Prentice Hall, Houghton Mifflin, and Ziff-Davis.
Paul earned a BFA in painting at Boston University School of Fine Arts where he studied with Joseph Ablow, Sidney Hurwitz, and John Wilson. Boston University provided an educational foundation that emphasized the fundamentals of classical art training: anatomy and form, color, composition and draftsmanship.
Schulenburg’s oils can be found in prestigious collections throughout the United States, in Canada, Europe and Hong Kong.
You are invited to join Robert Abele and Maryalice Eizenberg for demonstrations from 4 to 4:45, reception 5 to 7, and an exhibition of new work capturing light-filled scenes from the shore, gardens, and towns of Cape Cod.
Maryalice will reference a plein air study for a larger studio piece, demonstrating a detailed underpainting start with possibilities for changes in composition. During application of heavier pigment she will discuss brush and color choices influencing emotional response.
Robert Abele will discuss his use of the limited palette and how he strives for simplicity in his work, demonstrating his process (refined over 30 years) working directly in oils applying paint in the alla prima technique completing his canvas in one session. Robert’s use of cold wax medium resulting in luscious impasto brush strokes on the canvas will also be covered.
