"Inspired by Nature”
 

Thursday, July 7th through Monday, August 8th

The ARTery Gallery's July exhibit is titled "Inspired by Nature," bringing together the works of watercolorist Yeoshin "Helen" Hwang and potter/crafter/maker Scott Helfand.  These two very different artists are both closely aligned with nature, whether using nature's products as a medium or as inspiration for their creations.  This show will include two of Yeoshin’s ink and watercolor paintings on rice paper: "Hoping for Peace" featuring Ukraine's national flower, the sunflower and “Blessing Life,” her painting of plum blossoms. Helfand's stoneware mugs, created with actual tree leaves thrown into the mug wall, will be on display as well as his rustic modern tables with bases welded from steel and tops beautifully fashioned from raw edge wood.

 

Yeoshin (yuh-shin) is a Korean artist working with both traditional and modern Asian art materials and styles. She started her career over a decade ago under the tutelage of Lee Dong Il in Seoul, South Korea where her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions. Yeoshin illustrates her love of nature through the ten plant types that traditionally make up Korean art. She approaches her subjects in a relaxed meditative manner and seeks to convey their innate poetry to the audience.

 

Scott Helfand, a retired educator, has a deep affinity for working with his hands. He creates functional works of art that highlight the raw aesthetics of pottery, the rustic beauty of steel and wood, the natural patina of oxidizing steel, and the radiance of glass.  Scott especially enjoys using heat and fire to refine raw materials such as glass bottles that he repurposes into artwork.

 

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 oil, watercolor, and photography to sculpture, jewelry, textiles, pottery, and collage.

 

You can meet Yeoshin and Scott at their opening reception on Saturday, July 9th from 6-9 PM, which includes refreshments. Music will be provided by Karl Spicer, a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, including Upright and Electric Bass, Guitar, Flute and Japanese Bamboo Shakuhachi Flute.  He has performed with such notables as the Woody Herman Big Band, vocalist Ernestine Anderson, Buddy DeFranco, and Steve Cardenas.  The ARTery welcomes the public to this free cultural event.

 

The month-long exhibit will be on display from Thursday, July 7th through Monday, August 8th. 

"Realism to Surrealism
 

Opening Reception on Saturday, August 13th from 6-9 PM

Show Runs From August 11 to September 5

“Reflections of Summer” is the August theme for the ARTery Gallery in Milford’s exhibit featuring two of our region's accomplished artists: Madeline Tully and Reggie Cheong-Leen. This show celebrates light touches and subtle nuances, both in Tully’s delicate, somewhat romantic renderings of colorful flowers and beautiful women and in Cheong-Leen’s dreamy depictions of tranquil lakes and rivers from our local area.

Madeline's work is reminiscent of the Old Masters offering a soft old-world charm through her loose, soft, transparent application of oil paint. in her landscape, floral and portrait paintings.  She is also known for her watercolors, having studied with renowned watercolor instructor Matilda Grech. Tully succeeds in making watercolors the visual equal of oil paintings and vice versa, easily transmuting the qualities of each. She studied art in New York City in such renowned institutions as Forest Park School of Art, Jackson Heights Art School, Rego Park Art Studio and St. John's College.  She is a longstanding member of the Pike County Arts and Crafts and a member of the ARTery Cooperative since its beginning in 1996. Over the years, Madeline Tully has developed many followers and collectors as her uniquely romantic style has become instantly recognizable.

For many years, while pursuing a career in New York City, Reggie Cheong-Leen found little time or space to pursue his infatuation with surrealism—a passion since his teen years. Now, since relocating to Milford in 2001, he paints regularly, inspired by the beautiful scenes in our area, centered around the presence of water. He’s particularly attracted to the Delaware River’s seasonal color changes, often including surrealistic elements to his landscapes. A long-time supporter and friend of the gallery, the membership is thrilled to welcome him and celebrate his first featured exhibit there.
