Here’s what the MAA has to say about their new exhibit!
“Variations…. it’s what keeps outlooks fresh and interesting.
For close to a century the Marblehead Arts Association has exhibited the works of artists from throughout New England in the six galleries of its historic 1728 mansion home. All works have been judged and prizes in Fine Arts, Photography and craft categories will be awarded at the opening reception. There will be ballots available for visitors to cast votes for their favorite piece with a People’s Choice Award to be announced at the close of the exhibit.
We were excited to have received a record number of entries this year with hundreds of submissions from artists throughout New England!”
I was thrilled to have my mixed media artwork, Seabreeze, chosen to be part of the Variations exhibit. Seabreeze incorporates my watercolor painting of Ten Pound Island in Gloucester, seen through the paper sculpture window of a seaside house. The paper sculpture is all done in white paper and was inspired by all the white houses I saw on a visit I made to the Greek Island of Mykonos with my daughter. We wondered what the blue Mediterranean would look like through the windows of those white homes. Seabreeze is framed in a shadow box, 14″ x 14″.
The Variations exhibit will be open to view from February 8 through March 8, 2020. The opening reception was held Sunday, Feb. 9, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at MAA’s Hooper Mansion, 8 Hooper St., Marblehead. Hours are Tuesdays through Fridays and Sundays, noon to 5:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Closed Mondays.
