(Martha's Vineyard) Louisa Gould Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of our third Summer exhibit, Transcendence featuring new works by Kate Huntington, Paul Beebe, Maya Farber and Ellen Liman. The exhibit opens on July 17 th and runs through July 31 st . The opening reception will take place on Saturday, August 3 rd from 5 – 7 pm. Please stop by to meet the artists, view the show, and enjoy light refreshments.

This exhibition includes works on canvas both in acrylic and oil by four artists who have shown with the gallery for years. The works in Transcendence reflect images that transcend time -- children playing on the beach, seascapes, farm scenes, and florals. Each of these artists brings refreshing, dynamic and captivating new images to this show.

From Rhode Island, Kate Huntington returns to the Island with a collection of new beach scenes that will delight all viewers. Especially known for her richly painted surfaces, Kate has truly captured the spirit and character of her figures in these paintings. In Critters , one gets a glimpse into the curious nature of the three children who are glancing into the brightly colored orange pail. While in another work, you get the sense of chill and thrill as a boy enters the water. One can imagine joining these children and families at South Beach or another favorite beach along the Island. Kate’s use of bright colors, loose brushstrokes and playful depictions of figures are all signature elements of her works.

For over twenty five years, Paul Beebe from Connecticut has visited the Vineyard for summer vacations with his family and friends. Paul draws his inspiration from the Island, its rich history and beauty, and captures this in his maritime works. For this show, Paul has created several new oil paintings of traditional seascapes of Katama that were started from sketches on location, as well as his new work depicting Classic Sloops racing in the Vineyard Sound. Paul is a signature member of The American Society of Marine Artists and a member in the Martha’s Vineyard Art Association.

As a long time visitor, Maya Farber comes back with a wealth of new acrylics on canvas including her memorable farm scenes and still lifes. In Maya’s work, Martha’s Vineyard Barn , she captures the true essence of one of the iconic images of a barn here off Old County Road. In another work, Ready for Canning , Maya depicts images of everyday items like ball jars and glass Coca Cola bottles that have clearly transcended time and continue to be recognizable to all. Her warm palette and attention to detail are evident in both styles of her new paintings.

Back again for the summer from Florida, Ellen Liman returns to Chilmark and joins the other artists for this mid-Summer show. Ellen’s bright and colorful paintings of her favorite scenes here and afar, beaches, flowers, gardens, and harbors will enchant all. Ellen has painted here on the Island for over twenty years and enjoys portraying the simple pleasures of summer in her paintings. Her works display a strong use of intense color with light and carefree brushstrokes that create engaging images.

We look forward to see you on Saturday, August 3 rd from 5 – 7 pm for the opening of Transcendence and throughout the show. The Louisa Gould Gallery is located at 54 Main Street, Vineyard Haven. For more information or directions, please call (508)693-7373 or check out our website at .
