Opening Reception: Saturday, November 9th, 2 – 4 PM
An exhibition of watercolor paintings by Manchester-by-the-Sea artist Marion Hall will open in the Marguerite Pearson Room of the Rockport Art Association & Museum (RAA&M) on Saturday, November 9th with an artist’s reception from 2 – 4 PM. The exhibition will be on view Saturday, November 9 – Thursday, November 21.
“The focus of this solo show is marine subjects with original watercolor paintings of Cape Ann shores, seascapes, lighthouses, beach scenes, sand dunes, sea birds, the breaking surf, schooners, dories, and even a few Cayo Costa State Park, Florida beach scenes. My style is a blend of realism and impressionism, with a very colorful palette and ‘Cape Ann School’ lighting, expressing happy emotions and quiet moods that are easy to read.” – Marion Hall
