Louisa Gould Gallery presents Nature's Elements with works by representational painter Christopher Pendergast, landscape and floral painter Maya Farber, photographer Jeanne Campbell, and hot glass artist Ron Sievertson, who Ms. Gould met while traveling in Bali this past winter. The show opened Tuesday, June 28 and runs through July 19, and presents each artist's interpretations of the land or sea through his and her medium.
Mr. Pendergast presents a new technique that involves burning a drawing into a wooden panel, pouring epoxy on top, sanding it and then painting to create a more abstracted, textural surface.
Ms. Farber offers lush and detailed landscapes of her native Romania and upstate New York as well as her brightly colored florals in which she incorporates gold leaf.
Ms. Campbell's photographs are of Nevis, an island near the top of the Lesser Antilles, about 200 miles south of Puerto Rico. Taken this past winter in late May, they capture images of the small island of volcanic mountains and sandy beaches.
Mr. Sievertson opened his glass studio in 2004 in Bali, developing a cutting-edge style and technique in contemporary glassworks.
Opening reception for Natural Elements, Saturday July 2, from 5 to 7 pm, with music by Wes Nagy. The Louisa Gould Gallery, 54 Main Street, Vineyard Haven. 508-693-7373 or visit www.louisagould.com.
