Pia Juhl solo art exhibition at Jane Deering Gallery

Rocks Around the Cape — new paintings by Cape Ann artist Pia Juhl — continues through March at Jane Deering Gallery, 19 Pleasant Street in Gloucester. An opening reception will be held Saturday March 9th from 4-6pm.  A brilliant colorist, Juhl interprets the glacial boulders, marsh land, and the vast interaction of sky and sea along the Cape Ann coast.  Gallery hours: Friday/Saturday/Sunday 12noon-5:00pm or by appointment by calling 978-257-6608 or piajuhl@comcast.net.

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.

Pia Juhl . After the Storm 2015 . Acrylic on canvas . 20x30 inches .jpgNew 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.

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.
