Kittery Art Association Presents: Encore
Showing February 1 – April 30, 2017
Opening reception March 10th - 5:30pm
“Encore” is a beautiful exhibit of works by five local artists in the Morgan Gallery at the Kittery Community Center presented by the Kittery Art Association (KAA). This exhibit will be shown February 1st through April 30th. The public is invited to an Opening Reception with refreshments on Friday, March 10th at 5:30pm. Come hear the artists talk about the works and their process.
This exhibit showcases the works of Cheri Christenson, Deborah Cotter, Barbara D’Antonio, BJ Glanville and Polly Moak. Each artist will have multiple pieces on display. These artists are all part of the Kittery Art Association, a non-profit organization of volunteers, founded in 1958, committed to a mission to promote knowledge of the arts, stimulate interest in the work of local artists and express appreciation for the abundant creativity in the Seacoast area.
Christenson is a watercolor artist, art teacher, and musician. She has on display watercolor plein air works from this past summer. “Most of them are a simple yet beautiful representation of the seascape in front of me, however a couple of them take on a loose abstract interpretation.” She continues, “ Abstract being my normal genre, plein air was a fun adventure outside my norm.”
Reverend Deborah Cotter will be showing her acrylic art that she describes as “displays of personal emotional release.” In this show, the art is an expression of her feelings on death and her participation is dedicated to her brother Jack.
Barbara D’Antonio has been a lifelong artist who works with oils and focuses on figures. She will also be displaying landscapes for this show. She explains that in all her pieces, “color and brushwork are the primary means to organize the surface and communicate the feeling.”
BJ Glanville has been designing fabrics in the textile industry for over 30 years. Her art is focused on monoprinting on paper and fabric. “Taking an image and finding a pleasing way to repeat its pattern across a surface,” she says, “while always paying close attention to detail and the complexity of layering is rewarding for me.”
Polly Moak will be displaying her oil works that offer reflections of local scenes. Moak says, “my paintings are a response to the variety of natural beauty on the Seacoast, including views of the Shipyard, Fort Foster, and Pepperell Cove.”
