Exhibition Schedule 2012
The work of Louise Peabody
is immediately recognizable, even though the style has evolved
throughout her long career as a figurative painter, the sensibility
is still definitely her. Louise studied at Smith College and the
renowned Skowhegan School of Painting in Maine.
If you could only choose one word to describe her work, it would be "light". She paints light. Whether it is reflecting off the water, a glass table top, or someone's face, the mood and quality of light is immediately distinguishable. You know the season, the time of day, and the source of the light. It is all there-all the information, presenting itself in small strokes of the brush, layers of many colors of paint, totally abstract upon close inspection. But step away from the canvas and it's as if the camera's self-focus features just went into action. Her portraits are breathtaking; all necessary information delivered in small, hand painted pixels of rich luscious paint, yet the surface flows across the entire canvas without interruption.
This is Louise's fourth show at the Mark Humphrey Gallery. She divides her time between New York and Southampton.
The common thread running between Marcy Warren and Pamela Ornsten, the two artists sharing a exhibition at the Mark Humphrey Gallery, is enthusiasm, energy and passion for their craft and the subject matter they are portraying. Whether photographs of Marcy's life-altering visit to India or Pamela's friends, family and four legged pals.
The Mark Humphrey Gallery has recently taken the unusual course of exhibiting the work of talented, recently emerging artists, who blossom at the opportunity to exhibit in a professional gallery space, usually for the very first time. The gallery offers an embracing, encouraging atmosphere, with a strong emphasis on making this a fun, yet professional process. The excitement for the artist is palpable!
Pamela has been studying with the legendary Hampton painter, Paton Miller. She is not new to the creative process. She is well known for her line of jewelry. This creative process just fueled the artistic fire in her. Born in Manhattan, raised in England, Pamela attended university in the United States. She is a competitive equestrian, studied goldsmithing and devoted time to the Parrish Art Museum and Rogers Memorial Library. She and her husband have lived in the Hamptons for 30 years.
Marcy has recently been focusing more and more on her
energy, her boundless energy, on world travels and documenting
her experiences through photography. The exhibition, her
first, will be focusing entirely on her trip this winter to
India. The colors are breathtaking and the people, their faces,
joyous and life-loving. Whether old or young, Marcy
captures their beauty, both inner and outer. If you are on the
fence about visiting India, as many people seem to be, this
group of photographs will certainly tip the scale.
The exhibition, and especially it's opening night celebration, promises to bring the most energetic and enthusiastic crowd the gallery has ever experienced.
