Abele and Eizenberg: Our Illuminated Landscape

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.

After Hopper 2019

Artists and collectors flock to Cape Cod from all across the globe, just to see the sites that Edward Hopper painted. Half a century after his death, new generations continue to be inspired by his work and the area that this great American painter chose as his home. Creative people in all fields learn from those who have gone before: while honoring their teachers, they add their own talents and experience, their own selves, and make something new.

Acknowledging and ever grateful for Edward Hopper’s influence, “After Hopper” celebrates the artists of today who continue to pursue Hopper’s path in their own unique ways.

We will start with an oil painting demonstration by Maryalice Eizenberg at 4:00; the reception will run until 7:00. Eizenberg’s demonstration painting will be based on a building with architectural elements reminiscent of Hopper’s “Cape Cod Evening”. It has been unoccupied for many years and has that lonely feel often found in Hopper’s work. (Sadly, it is scheduled for demolition in September.)

We hope you can join us.

Jonathan Earle: Emerging Artist One Man Show

Jonathan Earle was born on Cape Cod in 1971. After graduating from The University of Massachusetts with a degree in landscape architecture, he spent 20 years in architectural and construction management. As his career path moved him further and further away from expressing his ideas with pencil and paper, he returned to his true passion, painting.

“Creating a sense of place in the landscape is at the core of landscape architecture. A sense of place is the experience or emotions associated within a familiar setting. It is this principle that I draw upon when painting, the dimension that is formed by people’s relationship with their physical setting, whether an actual figure in the painting or the viewer. I aim to capture the emotion and energy of that place. Whether it be the energy of a crowded street or the potential energy of idle traffic at a stoplight, both evoke emotion and feeling for a place.”

Jonathan is a member of the Cape Cod Art Association, where his work has received numerous Best in Show awards, and The Arnold Coleman Award. His works have also received top awards from various other art organizations. Jonathan lives in Sandwich with his wife and two children.

Paul Batch: Sweet Light of New England

Recent works by Paul Batch inspired by the sweet light found on evening walks around New England. The works in this exhibition are are a poetic response to shared experiences conveyed through paint, representative of scenes we know while perhaps not intended to be literal representations of specific places.

Join the artist for a demonstration from 4 to 4:45 for a brief while surprisingly informative demonstration illustrating how composition, value, scale and edges can work together to create a sense of atmosphere in a painting, followed by a reception from 5:00 to 7:00.
