PRESS RELEASE (Martha's Vineyard)
The Louisa Gould Gallery is
excited to celebrate its Sixth Anniversary with an art party and artist
reception on Friday, August 7, from 5-8pm at the Main Street Gallery.
Don Groover will play guitar, refreshments will be served, and there
will be new works to see by Gray Park, Ellen Liman, Robert Jewett, and
Jeanne Campbell. Please join the party!
8, from 3-5pm
, Gray Park will demonstrate his plein air painting
style. Please join us at the Gallery again to gain insight into his
Gray Park is a natural talent.
He began painting at nine years of age. Only in his thirties has
he won a handful of national awards, including the John Stobart National
Award of Excellence from the Mystic International Maritime Jury. Gray
paints large, relaxed landscapes that capture the essence of Vineyard
light and seasons.
Ellen Liman will exhibit her
bright, bold, and cheerful flower oil paintings in addition to a new
body of work entitled, Cloud & Sky. The Cloud & Sky series
are mostly paintings of Vineyard Sound. The palette contrasts
with her flowers, providing a diverse show. Ellen studied at the Art
Students League in New York and the Rhode Island School of Design and
has shown on the island for a number of years.
Complementing the large landscapes
and flower paintings are the masterfully created ceramics of Robert
Jewett. Collections of Robert's work are displayed in museums. His
style continues to change and develop. For this show, he has made
tall vases and carefully created bowls with impressive, stylish details
and varying glazes.
The flower photographs by Jeanne
Campbell show the richness of Nature's design. Jeanne is known
not only for her gardens but for capturing these gardens in all of their
glory, color, and patterns.
Celebrate with us this Friday,
August 7, from 5-8pm and re-visit the show until August 20th. The Louisa
Gould Gallery is located at 54 Main Street, Vineyard Haven. Please call
