Scott Memhard reflects on ART@The Icehouse reception for Peter Herbert and Leon Doucette Recent Works: “Good, appreciative crowd, in spite of all going on in Gloucester last night!” I heard it was packed and gorgeous.
Two person February exhibition at Jane Deering Gallery is one to see! See below for more information about the exhibition and the artists fromt the gallery’s press release:
New Work: Peter Herbert & Pia Juhl opens February 2nd at Jane Deering Gallery, 19 Pleasant Street in Gloucester with a reception on Saturday February 10th from 4-6pm. Peter Herbert’s series of land and seascapes examines the play of light and color above and below the horizon line. Also included are images inspired by Degas’ visit to Saint-Valery-sur-Sommes in the South of France and small works that focus on the glare of early morning light in Annisquam. 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 her eye. She breaks down a scene into its essential colors and shapes, using the brush to ‘feel’ the painting’s form. Both artists live and work on Cape Ann. This is their first exhibition showing together. Gallery hours: Friday-Sunday 12noon-5:00pm or by appointment by calling 978-283-2263 or 978-257-6608.
Peter Herbert studied at the Brooklyn Museum, the Art Students League of New York, with Brooklyn realist Andrew Reiss, master painter David Levine, and under the mentorship of Gloucester painters Erma Wheeler and Gordon Goetemann. His work has been exhibited at The Crosby Gallery, New York, NY, The Century Association of New York City, the Wenniger Gallery, the North Shore Arts Association, The Sawyer Free Library and in solo and group exhibitions at The Annisquam Exchange Art Gallery and the Annisquam Village Art Show.
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.
Jane Deering Gallery supports regional artists by offering work and exhibition space during the months January, February, March, April & May
