This Weekend in the Arts: 9/27-30/2019

Andrew Anderson-Bell – “Layers of Pastel” One-Artist Show

September 29 – October 11, 2018

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 28, 2:00 – 4:00 PM

 

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

An exhibition of representational landscape paintings in the medium of pastel by Ipswich artist Andrew Andersson-Bell will open in the Marguerite Pearson Room of the Rockport Art Association & Museum (RAA&M) on Saturday, September 28th with an artist’s reception from 2 – 4 PM. The exhibition will be on view Saturday, September 28 – Thursday, October 10.

Native to the New England area, Andrew Anderson-Bell is a representational landscape artist painting in the medium of pastel. A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Andrew initially pursued graphic design and photography. While these remain passions to this day, his interest in painting in pastel was sparked by viewing a pastel exhibition he saw 20 years ago. The immediacy of the medium, the vibrancy of the colors and the diversity of mark making inspired him to pursue a career in pastel painting. Where Andrew lives keeps him in daily contact with the great outdoors, his leading source for artistic inspiration. His paintings offer the viewer the indulgence of a meditative space to contemplate the grandeur of nature and reinforce the notion that even the most solitary and tranquil moments have significance.

Please check out Andrew’s website: www.anderson-bellstudio.com for further information about this dynamic artist.

Calico Lobster Donated To Gloucester Marine Genomics Institute 🧬

Here’s the calico lobster that Mike Tupper landed yesterday at the dock. I bought it and donated it to Gloucester Marine Genomics Institute 🧬 where they will analyze it and hopefully do a gene sequencing study on it to determine what are the specific genes that make it a rare calico lobster. Pretty cool stuff!

Here’s an interview with Tim Sullivan we did when I went to drop it off this morning-
