Treasures From Afar
Thursday, September 7th through Monday, October 9th
Opening reception on Saturday, September 9th from 6-9 PM
The ARTery Gallery's September exhibit "Treasures from Afar” features art inspired by distant travels. Artist Bill Rabsey’s two-and-three-dimensional pieces include artifacts collected along the North American Atlantic coastline from Florida to Nova Scotia. Similarly, the representational oil paintings of Barbara Alice Moir celebrate scenes from her travels in Italy, Amsterdam, and Scotland as well as NYC.
Anyone who converses with Bill Rabsey soon learns he has an interesting story to go with each piece he’s created. As a child, Rabsey spent hours watching his grandfather, a retired commercial artist, paint seascapes and landscapes including the iconic lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia; the waterfront in the Bronx, New York; and Long Island Sound. Today Rabsey cleverly creates his own coastal treasures from rusted and weathered objects that curiously evoke a sense of the forgotten past.
Barbara Alice Moir created her first oil painting as part of a high school history assignment at nearby Eldred Central School, across the Delaware River in Sullivan County, NY. She has been painting ever since. Moir is best known for colorful landscapes of the northeastern United States and Europe using classical brush and knife techniques. In 2011, she was selected for an American landscape show in Amsterdam, Netherlands. She is an artist member of the Salmagundi Art Club in Manhattan, NYC; the Lyme Art Association, Old Lyme, Connecticut; and Oil Painters of America.
The ARTery Gallery, located in the historic Forest Hall, is a cooperatively owned and operated fine art gallery, serving the regional artists and art lovers since 1996. The gallery features a wide array of artistic talent ranging from traditional and modern oil, watercolor, and photography to sculpture, jewelry, textiles, pottery, and collage.
You can visit and enjoy refreshments with Bill Rabsey and Barbara Alice Moir at their opening reception on Saturday, September 9th from 6-9 PM. The ARTery welcomes the public to this free cultural event.
The month-long Rabsey-Moir exhibit will be on display from Thursday, September 7th through Monday, October 9th. Gallery hours are Thursday through Monday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Explorations in Depth and Color
The ARTery Gallery's August exhibit titled "Explorations in Depth and Color" brings together the unique work of printmaker Patricia Bronstein and three-dimensional paper artist Chris Hobbs. An interesting facet of Patricia Bronstein’s printmaking has been the addition of collage. Now in this show, she expands her mediums to include ink, watercolor, and pastels combined with printmaking. Her new pieces demonstrate how multiple mediums can produce atmospheric effects as the figures she presents are encapsulated in imagination and swirling color. Chris Hobbs, one of the original members of the gallery since its founding in 1996, also makes strong use of color in his unique and complex three-dimensional graphic creations. Hobbs’ work includes a wide range of popular scenes from Medieval, Victorian and European street scenes to colorful abstract designs.
Patricia Bronstein has been in solo and group shows in the Midwest as well as here on the East Coast. She studied drawing at the Art Students League in New York City and studied printmaking at the School of Visual Arts in New York City as well as the Minneapolis College of Art in Design in Minneapolis. As a former resident of Minnesota, where the air is grey and the ground white for much of the year, Bronstein especially appreciates the East Coast’s rich array of greens, blues, pinks, and yellows. Not only have these colors found their way into her printmaking, but she now enjoys experimenting with the effects of various colors on the same print. As a result, Bronstein’s work carries a fresh sophistication that is both modern and aesthetically pleasing.
Chris Hobbs paper art methods and processes are uniquely his. Unlike Origami (which uses folded paper) or other one-dimensional paper designs cut from flat paper—Chris builds mass and depth by layering a multitude of small individual-colored pieces of paper. His work is labor-intensive as each geometric shape is cut by hand and then carefully fixed in place to create depth and dimension. Once these highly complex constructions are complete, he encloses them in shadow boxes, making them suitable for long lasting, easy to maintain home or office display.
