While pandemic uncertainty delays Olivier Suire Verley’s return to the states until 2022, we are happy to present a full exhibition of his new works for you now. As completed, works are available to preview and to reserve at the gallery and on AddisonArt.com. (Works began selling prior to arrival in the gallery and we are happy to take requests.)
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.
