South Shore Art Center features North Shore artists Coco Berkman, Pia Juhl and Juni VanDyke #CohassetMA

The South Shore Art Center press release for September/October 2020 exhibition:                     

From North Shore to South Shore…Gloucester Comes to Cohasset 

Featuring three artists: COCO BERKMAN, PIA JUHL, JUNI VANDYKE

Cape Ann artist printmaker Coco Berkman creates images that delight her and hopefully others through the process of linoleum printmaking. Inspired by literature, the natural world, and the free play inherent in drawing, Berkman uses sharp Japanese tools to carve images into sheets of linoleum and then prints them one color at a time over several months to complete an edition. A member of the Boston Printmakers, Berkman’s work is represented by 13 Forest Gallery in Arlington and The Square Circle Gallery in Rockport. 

Pia Juhl, is well known for her light filled paintings depicting quarries and giant rock formations indigenous to her surroundings.  She has had numerous exhibitions in Europe and on Cape Ann including Jane Deering Gallery.    

Juni VanDyke will exhibit paintings related to her connection with Gloucester.  “The Cape Ann landscape is a subliminal force directing my art and tethering me to a love of color and the infinite configurations of abstraction.  Traveling to my work in Gloucester, I cross over the elevated Annisquam Bridge where below the sea is an ever changing miracle of patterns and light holding promise for later.”   VanDyke’s work is held in the permanent collection of Cape Ann Museum.  Her work is represented by Jane Deering Gallery, and throughout the US by Room and Board, Inc.

The exhibition continues through October 30th.

The South Shore Art Center is located at 119 Ripley Road, Cohasset

This week – Deborah Brown solo exhibition at Jane Deering Gallery

Ephemerata | a timeline of creation and change
works by Deborah Brown

 

The highly textural paintings (12×12 and 8×8) have occupied my impulsive hands for several years (2008-2020). What started as an inquisitive exploration of materials and depth became the challenge of transforming a flat surface into a three-dimensional abyss. An additional challenge was to transform the restrictive visual enclosure of the square to a dynamic metamorphic journey. Primal materials such as earth pigments, charcoal and volcanic ash reiterate the grit of progression, stasis and ultimate demise. — Deborah Brown

 

Deborah Brown studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and has exhibited her work throughout the United States. She is intensely private so you will not unearth her presence on Social Media; not a philistine, just a hermit. Having spent considerable time in Alaska, she now continues her art practice in her recently adopted home of Gloucester MA. 

 

I see my work as visceral and evocative, an embedded imprint on the limbic brain, relentlessly touched, molded, scraped and scattered with earthbound dust. And with a certain threatening charm to engage and provoke the viewer.

The motions and rituals of daily activities all serve as prompts allowing Barker to incorporate walking, journey-taking, solitary contemplative actions — into forms of drawing, sewing, knitting, wrapping, paper manipulation and performance.  

In 2018 a sculptural piece was chosen for  exhibition at the 250th celebration The Great Spectacle: Summer Exhibition at The Royal Academy of Arts, London UK curated by British National Treasure, Grayson Perry.

GAIL BARKER Untitled 2018 paper receipts, linen thread. 10x10x3 in at Jane Deering Gallery 2020

The Bauhaus Inspired series began shortly after Barker moved to the West Country.  Unable to work on large pieces, she began visiting antique/junk shops where a treasure trove of French silks was discovered.  Convinced at the time these were  ‘paintings’ despite the  fact that she was knitting them into squares, they were put aside until January  of this year.  With the addition of colors along the bottom of each piece they did become,  in her mind, paintings.

Gail Barker grew up under the wide skies and on the flat landscape of East Anglia in Great Britain. She attended a Quaker primary school and later a farm school — all of which influenced her love of space and a reverence for the simple rhythms of daily life. In 1977 she moved to Rochester, NY and then In 1989 to New England (Beverly Farms MA) where she graduated from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston  She has exhibited at The Royal Academy of Arts, London UK; and performed with the collaborative Fourthland (https://www.fourthland.com) at The Arnolfini Gallery, Bristol UK and Bath UK. Her work is held in numerous private collections in the US and UK. Barker returned to her native England in 2008. She resides in Bath where she maintains her studio.

A message from Jane Deering:

The gallery is opening with limited hours beginning Saturday June 13th, and in celebration of re-opening, is offering a special price on each of the fourteen charming and evocative framed images from The journey … then and now. All of these works can be viewed by clicking on the link below.

Jane Deering, Jane Deering Gallery

The first thing I noticed upon rediscovering these drawings made in Italy nearly thirty years ago is how related they appear to be to my current work. These small drawings, reprinted and overlaid with color were my response to a foreign landscape that had excited and animated my attention. As I traveled without camera throughout Italian villages, hillsides, canals, and cities, drawing was my way of preserving memory. Today, I use drawing more as an abstract element for pictorial balance. But the affinity I had for color those many years ago remains steadfast, reminding me that color is the driving force that continues to define my work. Wit the ebb and flow of time my work has evolved in ways that I would not have imagined thirty years ago. Still, the element of color is constant allowing for surprise and recognition.

Opening Reception of ‘Formally Taught … and Not’ group art exhibition curated by Juni VanDyke March 21st 4:00-6:00pm @ Jane Deering Gallery #GloucesterMA

Formally Taught … and Not includes work by established artists who frequently exhibit in galleries, museums and public institutions, and inspiring work by Senior Citizens in the art program at The Rose Baker Senior Center — creative people whose important life’s work has circumvented formal art training.  Now with time and the passion to explore, these Seniors are continuing in their journey of self-expression. Their artwork is illuminating and proof that we are all equipped with a unique set of sensibilities informed by years of aesthetic practice implicit in daily living — namely observation and the practice of evaluating how things look. The gallery is grateful to the following who participated in the exhibition:

Gabrielle Barzaghi, Coco Berkman, Deborah Bohnert, Anthea Brigham, Carolyn Budrow, Helen Burgess, Kay Carpenter, Nateley Daley, Rob Diebboll, Rob Green, Pippy Gulianno, Joy Halsted, Susan Harrigan, Barbara Jobe, Ed Leavitt, Paul L’Heureux, Marian Linden, Barbara Maddix, Joann Maddix, Judy Magee, Jeffrey Marshall, Maria Millefoglie, Barbara Moody, Adin Murray, Mary McCarl, Gen McNamara, James Paradis, Jenny Parisi, Hans Pundt, Bob Quinn, Doreen Ross, Valerie Sadler, Lynne Sausele, Linda Sojda, Dawn Southworth, Lois Stillman, Bill Sumner, Ed Touchette

Gloucester Blue: fifty small painted drawings & selection of art furniture by Paul Neily | opening reception August 3 Jane Deering Gallery

August 3 – 30, 2019

x paul 2.jpg

Fifty small painted drawings bathed in the spectral light of blue, evoking a state of memory and flashback, impression and recall. What the mind stores, the dream rouses. Paul Neily’s charmed drawings document his memory of the streets and lanes, houses and rooftops of Gloucester, a city that is changing. There’s a sense of nostalgia to Neily’s recollections but no sentimentality. Neily’s reminiscence echos his reflection of a city real and beloved. Also on view will be a selection of Paul Neily’s unique furniture pieces. His platinum furniture pieces were influenced by the work of Carl Jung.

Paul Neily — painter, poet, composer, designer — is a self-taught inventor. His paintings and furniture pieces have been shown in New England. Neily’s work is held in numerous private collections. He lives and maintains a workshop in Essex, Massachusetts on Cape Ann.

Pia Juhl solo art exhibition at Jane Deering Gallery

Rocks Around the Cape — new paintings by Cape Ann artist Pia Juhl — continues through March at Jane Deering Gallery, 19 Pleasant Street in Gloucester. An opening reception will be held Saturday March 9th from 4-6pm.  A brilliant colorist, Juhl interprets the glacial boulders, marsh land, and the vast interaction of sky and sea along the Cape Ann coast.  Gallery hours: Friday/Saturday/Sunday 12noon-5:00pm or by appointment by calling 978-257-6608 or piajuhl@comcast.net.

PJuhl . Cape Ann 2018 . Acrylic on Canvas . 24x24 inches _LJN8965.JPG

Pia Juhl writes: ‘I love to paint landscapes of Cape Ann and presently am concentrating on large-scale subjects.’ Glacial boulders, the marsh land, monolithic stones, the vast interaction of sky and sea — all of this has captured Juhl’s eye.  A brilliant colorist, the artist breaks down a scene into its essential palette and shapes, using the brush to ‘feel’ the painting’s form.

 

Pia Juhl was born in Denmark and after meeting her American husband there, moved to Boston.  Early on, Edward Hopper was a great influence.  Today, her painting is more intuitive and influenced by Milton Avery, Wolf Kahn and Catalan artist Jaume Muxart. Her work has been exhibited widely on Cape Ann at Flatrocks Gallery, Cove Gallery, Annisquam Exchange Art Gallery and Art in the Barn.  She has also shown at Faneuil Hall in Boston and in Harvard MA.  This is the artist’s second show at Jane Deering Gallery.
