The Beebe Estate Gallery will exhibit the artwork of Sheila Farren Billings and Robert Marcellino for the month of June 2018. The two-artist show will be open Saturdays 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Sheila will be at the gallery to answer questions on June 9 and 16 and Bob will be there on June 1 and 23. The opening reception will occur on Friday, June 1, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Sheila will be showing a mix of new artwork and old favorites. Her exhibit includes her stylized paintings of trees, plein air paintings of New England locations and scenes inspired by her travel photos and lots of surprises. When she is in the gallery, Sheila will bring along her bins of unframed original art, reproductions of her art, and small paintings and notecards.
Bob paints with a special technique which involves mixing oil paint with beeswax. This gives his work a soft, dreamlike quality which complements his richly colored paintings of marshes, seascapes and florals. Bob’s work is unapologetically romantic and peaceful. During his gallery hours, Bob will demonstrate his technique and his small paintings, cards and prints will be available.
(Shown: Four Seasons, acrylic, 4-panels, each panel 12″ x 24″, total size 24″ x 48.)
