Description

THE GALLERY AT FIREHOUSE SQUARE Presents “Echoes of Nature – Reflections of the Natural World”

Opening reception held Saturday, January 12, 2013

 

NEW LONDON, CT – December 20, 2012 – The Gallery at Firehouse SquarE is bringing the outdoors inside during “Echoes of Nature – Reflections of the Natural World” by artists Dianne Gorrick of East Hampton and Jacqueline White of Glastonbury. This colorful environmental art exhibit will run from January 12-27, and feature both picturesque scenes of nature, as well as thought-provoking narratives of nature’s struggles under human’s abuse of the planet.  

 

Gorrick’s masterpieces “Frozen Beauties,” “Harkness Memorial State Park,” “River of Dreams,” and others that will be on display at THE GALLERY depict the beauty of nature through peaceful landscapes that are invigorated by bright colors and impasto painting. Art lovers will marvel at the thick application of paint that gives the paintings a three dimensional quality, enhancing the sense of depth within the compositions.

 

“My style is romanticized realism, where I want the viewer to be drawn into the scene and enjoy looking at the painting,” said Gorrick.  “My current body of work depicts scenes from New England and Norway painted on location and in my studio from small scale plein air studies. To fill a space in a beautiful way is my goal.”

 

White’s masterworks “Mourning,” “The Sorrow of the Salmon,” “Carpe Diem,” “Apple Lady at Ferry Landing,” among others that will be on display at THE GALLERY summon ephemeral moments and emotions that are conceived in nature. Through her narratives, nature is used symbolically; butterflies, dragonflies, and plants might represent a lost loved one while many animals admonish us for the abuse of our planet. These are carefully orchestrated and nature is drawn upon from memory.  Dipping her homemade reed pen in thinned, earth-toned oil paint, White pushes, pulls, jabs and scrapes onto sized-unprimed canvas with only a preliminary thumb-nail sketch to go by.

 

“I paint to explore the unspoken dialogues that exist between time and space to reveal what is sensed and not heard. The goal of my work is to more fully express a living connection to nature and the past,” said White. “There is a sheer joy in responding to the rhythms of the landscape; exercising intuition and intellect to record the graceful lines of trees, the rush of water, wind, and warmth. There is a sense of giving and receiving.”

 

“Echoes of Nature - Reflections of the Natural World” opens on Saturday, January 12th with an afternoon reception from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at THE GALLERY AT FIREHOUSE SQUARE. Gorrick and White will be available to speak about their inspirations, style, and passion for art and the environment.  For more information, please visit www.firehousesquare.com
