Her Steady Horizon – Installation at KEW Dartmouth

Welcome to KEW Dartmouth!

Artwork getting installed. My “Escape Under Blue” is greeting you at the door!

 

 

Her Steady Horizon. A triptych of a woman’s journey through the changing waters towards an unknown future. “Shore”, “Surf”, and “Sea”. Each 36″ x 36″ Oil on canvas.

 

This series NEEDS this couch!!! (I bet Ray can give you a deal if you buy the whole package!)

 

 

 

 

My two Peggy’s Cove pieces also got displayed for sale. It’s the first time I’ve hung them side by side. I like the contrast between the different extreme perspectives of the same subject.

 

 

 

 

We’re pretty happy with how it turned out! Oh, and we had some wines! Many thanks to Ray Frizzell for such a beautiful venue for my show, and for being such a great supporter of my artwork! xox

Her Steady Horizon – A Gallery Show

Her Steady Horizon – A Gallery Show

A new show of my latest series, “Her Steady Horizon”, will be happening this Saturday, February 25th, 6pm-9pm at KEW Dartmouth. These paintings are based on a series of photographs from the 50’s, of unknown origin, of a woman walking into the ocean. Originally I was just struck by the imagery – pastels of the the water and sky, the  composition of the woman as she moves into the sea – but as I worked on the pieces they evolved into a commentary on woman’s rights. The quintessential 50’s, well coiffed, housewife, heads steadily into the sea. Stormy surf or lulling waves, she is steadfast in her journey to a better horizon.

Join me and my host, Ray Frizzel, at KEW to see the culmination of this series at long last! Hope to see you there!
