Jane Deering Gallery group show: Gloucester . Cape Ann | modern conversations

Jane Deering Gallery is pleased to present 

Gloucester . Cape Ann | modern conversations

June 9 – June 29, 2022

Opening Reception on Saturday June 11th from 3-6pm.

Artists working in Gloucester, and more broadly on Cape Ann, have a unique vision of the promontory. What is their feel for our place along the sea? And how do they wish to present it to us, the viewers of their thoughts? Each exploration of light, land, sky, stone, architecture, industry, and countless other features is singular. There is communication between artist and place; and we sense, we hear, those conversations in their art. Participating artists include: Coco Berkman . Ann Conneman . Celia Eldridge . Paige Farrell . Erin Luman . Jeffrey Marshall . Adin Murray . James Paradis . Michael Porter . Christopher Pullman . Esther Pullman . Beverly Ripple . Caleb Hershey Rulli . Juni Van Dyke.  

Exhibition at Jane Deering Gallery June 2022

JANE DEERING ABOUT THIS SHOW:

My interest lies in how artists living and working in Gloucester, and more broadly on Cape Ann, express their vision of the promontory. What is their feel for our place along the sea? As they encounter it, and closely observe it, how do they wish to present it to us, the viewers of their thoughts? Each exploration of light, land, sky, stone, architecture, industry, and countless other features is singular. There is communication between artist and place; and we sense, we hear, those conversations in their art.

The New York Times recently penned the phrase to see it all anew, an apt phrase that could easily have been the title for this show.

After giving the gallery to regional artists for their own exhibitions these past months, I am happy to be back at JDG for the summer season. Join me for this first show which celebrates seeing and hearing anew this place of home.

Jane Deering, June 2022

Gallery hours: Friday & Saturday 1-5pm; Sunday 1-4pm; and by appointment @ 917-902-4359 . 19 Pleasant Street, Gloucester. janedeeringgallery.com

Sawyer Free Library to Showcase Gloucester Cityscapes in February

John McElhenny shares –

GLOUCESTER, Feb. 4, 2015 – The Sawyer Free Library has kicked off a month-long exhibition of the works of Gloucester artist Erin Luman, whose “City Spaces” paintings focus on the rooftops, power lines and tiny architectural details of Gloucester that many of us pass every day without noticing.

Luman’s paintings highlight typical Gloucester scenes – a doorway on Center Street, a roofscape on Washington Street, a house on School Street. By capturing them on canvas, she forces us to stop and consider the everyday beauty in the heart of our city. The largest painting in Luman’s library show highlights the Birdseye building on Commercial Street, which was recently razed to build a new hotel.

“There is nothing more satisfying than seeing something old in a new light,” said Luman. “Neighborhoods and buildings I’ve walked past a million times become new when pencil hits paper. To slow everything down and find the balance between places that might be considered ‘ugly’ and the beauty in them is what keeps me inside this series.”

Luman, who lives in downtown Gloucester, worked with the renowned Gloucester painter Zygmund Jankowski to catalogue and photograph his entire collection before his death. Luman’s paintings from her “City Scapes” collection will be on display in the main entry of the Sawyer Free Library for the month of February.

Rooftops show and reception!

Yay! These paintings are gonna see the light of day!

Look left when you wander down Pleasant St. towards Main because these babies will be at the Hive for the month of July. One big painting in the window and then follow the path to the back gallery to see the rest of the work.

The Hive is not only a place looking to involve our community in the making of art, but also is about to start holding regular art shows. Its honestly one of the loveliest spaces to see art in Gloucester and is about to define itself as a regular and relaxed space to see art.
