Article by RAA Member, Lisa Goren, published in the New York Times!Lisa Goren, 29 Muse, watercolor

“Loading 27 artists with all of their gear onto a tall ship is the very definition of herding cats. In the fall of 2013, I was one of this group for an artists’ residency program, sailing approximately 500 miles from the North Pole….” Click here to read the whole article.

The Rocky Neck Art Colony Presents…Perfect StormOpening Reception:
Saturday, February 7, 4 to 6pm

February 6 – March 1,2015

Cultural Center Gallery, 6 Wonson St. Gloucester

Reception: SAT Feb 7, 4-6pm
People’s Choice Award Reception: Sun Mar 1, 2-4pm

Juror, Leonie Bradbury, Director and Curator of Montserrat College of Art Galleries, selected 39 pieces from 22 artists out of 201 entries submitted. Bradbury said this about her selection process.

When I think of the concept of a “perfect storm” I think of a set of circumstances, or in this case the forces of nature, coming together in an unprecedented or unpredictable way. I feel that the works selected for this exhibition possess a quality of energies either colliding or expanding, sometimes raw and intense other times harmonious and peaceful. A few pieces, however, are subtler and show those quiet moments after a storm or visually capture a more delicate interaction of weather with a landscape through mist and fog. Together these works remind us of the power of nature and the beauty that we see in its magnificence.

The Eastern New England artists selected for the show include Emily Barrera,  Peter Baumgartner,  Dale Blank,  Kara Caso, Matt Cegelis,  Katherine Coakley,  Gail Gang,  Gordon Goetemann, Lisa Goren,  Ruth Hamill,  Law Hamilton,  Robert Hesse, Michele Kenna,  Mary Kostman,  Otto Laske,  Judith Monteferrante, Skip Montello,  Sandys Moore,  Ruth Schneider,  Miranda Updike, Timothy Wilson,  and Philip Young (names in bold are RAA Exhibiting Members).

We invite you to see this exciting collection of work and meet the artists at our opening reception on Saturday, February 7 from 6-9pm. Vote for your favorite piece. A People’s Choice award will be presented at the closing reception on Sunday, March 1, 2-4pm.

Because of the snow, parking is limited in the main parking lot.
Extra parking is available at the Marine Railways at the end of Rocky Neck Ave., two blocks from the Cultural Center. Be sure to wear good boots.
