West Reading Avenues Winter 2021-22 - 31

It's the first public exhibition of this series of 10 new works. Like
the mural, behind the visual strength of the Cosmic Garden's rich
floral and neon elements as they float in space, is an undertone
of fragility.
" All of the pieces in this series started with photographs I took
last year while working at Molly Stark State Park in southern
Vermont, " Greg explains. " The bright floral arrangements,
vivid ferns and neon accents stand in stark contrast to the dark
vastness of space. My vision was to create art that was visually
stimulating but also asked the question of how fragile organic
organisms would function as we continue to explore beyond
our terrestrial planet. "
Adding to the uniqueness of the subjects is the process that
Greg used to reproduce the pieces. Salvaging and rebuilding
high end digital color printers, he has built a one-of-a-kind
system - dubbed " Photograin Printing " - through which he
reproduces his original photos, illustrations and compositions
directly onto birch panels. The result is a subtle visual texture of
woodgrain that adds yet another layer of richness to each piece.
Cosmic Garden runs February 2-27. The reception at Art Plus will be
Friday, 2/11, 5:00 to 8:00 pm.
where I grew up, " explains Mary. " There is a raw beauty to that
landscape that never fails to touch me at a deep level. It is almost
a mystical or spiritual experience. "
The creative process has become increasingly important to
Mary. She has shifted her focus from highly realistic oil painting
and illustration to watercolor and multimedia, often combining
abstraction with realism.
MARCH FEATURED EXHIBIT
MEMORIES OF DISTANT LANDS
This exhibit features Mary Burke's watercolors and oils, inspired by
the coasts of Ireland and Maine. Though she is often landlocked
in her Pennsylvania studio, the sea has always been another
home for artist Mary Burke.
" The primary influence of my work comes from the landscapes
and coastal regions of Ireland and Maine, but especially Ireland,
Each piece starts from a combination of images from sketches,
drawings, and photographs. " These are starting points as I am
not trying to capture the physical image precisely but trying to
express the mystical experience and the essence of a landscape
or the mesmerizing quality of the sea. This way of working is
very liberating and exciting, where the process of the painting
itself is becoming as important as the idea, " says the Art Plus
Gallery member.
The results have been stunning, earning such descriptors as " vibrant
energy, " " ethereal air, " and " hauntingly beautiful. " Mary belongs
to the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society, Oil Painters of
America, Lancaster County Art Association, and Studio B Gallery.
Memories of Distant Lands runs March 1-31. The reception will be Friday,
3/11, from 5:00 to 8:00pm.
