"Nurtured By Nature" at DeBlois Gallery in September
"Nurtured By Nature," the September Show at DeBlois Gallery will open on Saturday, September 4, 2021, with a reception from 1-7 PM. All are invited to view the show. We will have refreshments and music. Safety guidelines followed and masks required.
DeBlois Gallery presents: "Nurtured By Nature" a show that features the work of 4 wonderfully accomplished artists whose work is infused with a joy and love of nature. Nick Williams says he is "Inspired by his time in, on and around the water of Newport." He creates paintings in acrylic and epoxy depicting naturalistic scenes and the frames he makes to complement each piece. CC Wolf states that "Life is a story and interpreting that story is our journey; I allow my paint to walk me through a private landscape which is always full of surprises; color has been my path to my inner vision; I see the natural world in symbolic terms-bridging the eternity of nature and the individual self." Capturing the spirit of nature in wood, Shawndavid Berry feels the "organic movement seen from a Surreal lens, exposed through subtractive removal. I adjust the image as the piece demands, accommodating and eliminating future movement. Touch, feel, explore and most of all I hope my work is enjoyed." With joy in mind, the artwork of Virginia Fishburne Stone always brings a smile. She is inspired in this particular show by the sketch books she found of her grandmother and namesake, Virginia Ritchie Fishburne. " I worked from my grandmother's sketches, riffing off of them with my contemporary vision and sensibility. I related to her refined lines and her humor. These drawings have been a special experience for me. Enjoy!"
The Show continues at the gallery on 134 Aquidneck Ave in Middletown through September 26. Gallery Night is September 9, 5-8 PM.
Hours are 1-5 PM, Thursday-Sunday. Free admission. Ample, free parking
