A brilliant colorist, Juhl interprets the glacial boulders, marsh land, and the vast interaction of sky and sea along the Cape Ann coast.

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.
Jane Deering Gallery supports regional artists by offering work and exhibition space. Contact the gallery for details. firstname.lastname@example.org
