"Home - Land"

Thursday, October 6th through Monday, November 7th

The ARTery Gallery in Milford is pleased to announce the annual dual-featured exhibits of member artists Marie Liu and Randall FitzGerald for the month of October titled "Home - Land".  Both long-time members, it has become a decade long tradition to share the stage for their featured exhibits, 

Marie Liu, the current Director of the cooperative gallery, has been painting images inspired by Milford and the Poconos since 2009.  With a seemingly endless supply of interesting subjects, from the landscape, waterways and waterfalls, to the unique history and notable people who have also called this place home - all find their way into her imagery.  One of the subjects she is drawn to has been the Lenape 'original people'.  Sensing the energy that is calling them back home, Marie has created a painting of Nora Thompson Dean aka Touching Leaves Woman, a renowned Lenape educator.   Nora endeavored to preserve her people's language, culture and knowledge of their homeland through her teaching. She visited the region (from her home in Oklahoma) in the 1970's to protest the Tock Island Dam project and consult with archaeologist Herbert Kraft.  Marie is excited to present this painting of Touching Leaves in her peoples historic homeland with the sacred Delaware Tobacco in the foreground, as well as other new paintings that explore the depth and meaning of our experience in this place.

 

Randall FitzGerald, a long-standing member of the ARTery Gallery, has been photographing and painting for over 50 years.  Professionally trained in the sciences as an ecologist, he has always endeavored to combine his artistic and scientific pursuits.  His love for nature permeates his artistic life and consequently what he creates reflects the intimacy he enjoys with the natural world.  His current work is dominated by rural landscapes, seascapes and bird life, with a flare for romanticism.  Although he has worked with oils, watercolors, inks, acrylics and encaustics, the artwork in this current exhibit is rendered using inks and acrylics on canvas.  Being an accomplished woodworker and ardent environmentalist, he makes all his own frames with recycled materials such as old flooring, table tops, siding, etc.  Each piece of art is custom framed with these repurposed materials, cut and stained or painted to enhance each unique work of art. 

 

Please join them for their reception on Saturday October 8 from 6 - 9 pm and meet the other artists who continue to make this cooperative gallery a 23 year success.  Free, refreshments will be served.
