Shadows and Light

The Art Group Tour 2018

Please join us for the Artist Reception on Friday, September 14 from 5-7pm.

“The Art Group” show “Shadows and Light” coordinated  by Peter Abate comprises works in various mediums of 27 artists who have been exhibiting work together for many years. The show travels to a variety of  New England venues through early 2019.  Show venues include The Gafney Library in Sanbornville New Hampshire, The Glickman Library, at the USM/ Glickman Library in Portland Maine, The Art Place Gallery in Wolfeboro New Hampshire, the Lynn Museum in Lynn Massachusetts and the Franklin Gallery in Rochester New Hampshire.  Other venues may be added as the tour progresses.  The shows posters were designed by Maine graphic artist Bob Bond.  Artists in this group show are from Maine,  New Hampshire,  Massachusetts,  Oregon and Florida.   The participating artists are Peter Abate,  Darlene Bean,  Bob Bond,  Peggy Brewster,  Steve Brown,  Valerie Schurer Christle,  Mabel Doyle,  Ken Eason,  Teresa M. Farina,  Bob Farrell,  Ron Fountain,  J.P. Goodwin,  Joe Keller,  Elaine Klement,  Gary LaPierre,  Heather MacLeod,  Emily Marsh,  Anita Muise,  Mikel O’Brien,  Shawn Pelech,  Jeff Roberts,  Norman Royle,  Gabe Smith,  Sharon Theiling, Jill Vendituoli,  Lukas K. Weber and Corina Willette.

The show includes art in a variety of mediums focusing on themes of shadow and light.  Shadow and light are invaluable in art; both help the eye distinguish forms, space and distance.  Shadow and light are experienced in many ways, including the physical interactions perceived by the eye through light and in shadows cast and attached,  by light which is the result of natural effects or artificial light sources.   Color interacts with light as a byproduct of the amount of reflected light on a particular object.  Interpretations of shadow and light also fall into the realm of the symbolic,  religious,  metaphysical,  emotional and the abstract,  experienced in unlimited ways during our daily lives.
