Opening of the exhibition Water, Water, Everywhere at Gallery One on September 1
Gallery One in Ocean View has announced that its next exhibition, Water, Water, Everywhere, will be open to the public from Wednesday September 1 to Wednesday September 29.
The famous poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge wrote: “Water, water, everywhere, no drop to drink”, a line from his poem “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”. This month, Gallery One artists use Coleridge’s verses to invite viewers to soak up the beauty of the region’s water-filled landscapes. Freshwater ponds, the Delaware Bay Watershed marshes, and the Atlantic Ocean all provide income and fun for local residents and visitors alike.
The beach and the ocean are a source of wonder any time of the year and any time of the day. In Lesley McCaskill’s painting “Low Tide,” the artist revel in the variety of textures and patterns created by the ebb and flow of waves and the light dancing on the surface of the water.
In Michelle Marshall’s acrylic painting, “Ocean After the Storm”, we see this magical atmospheric moment where the clouds part and this first ray of sun breaks through, illuminating the water and creating a path of light.
‘Frosty Sunrise at the Beach’, an acrylic painting by artist Jeanne Mueller, depicts the unusual but serene occurrence of a beach ‘snow landscape’, proving that there is no season when the beach does not delight.
A variety of boats that cross the region’s waterways for business and pleasure are also appearing this month.
Smith Island Work Boat artist Marybeth Paterson said, “Smith Island is a fragile treasure in Chesapeake Bay. The work boats there have their own unique stories – hard times, good times, bumps and bruises along the way. “
Laura Hickman’s pastel painting is similarly inspired by the island of Tangier in “Canal Beside Factory Road, Tangier Island”. Hickman said, “Tangier Island sits in the middle of the vast Chesapeake and is riddled with canals and wetlands. This is the perfect example of “water, water, everywhere”.
“Rounding the Cape”, an oil painting by artist W. Scott Broadfoot, depicts a classic sailing ship circling the Delaware Breakwater East End Lighthouse. Depending on the weather and the wind, a sailboat can almost always be seen at any time of the year in Delaware Bay.
In artist Dale Sheldon’s mood painting, “Marina Fog,” boats wait for the day to begin as the sun barely shines through the fog and reflects off the water.
“At Sea” by Joyce Condry depicts a peaceful reverie of the sea, the sky and the sails.
“The Lily Pond”, an oil by Ray Ewing, and the watercolor by Cheryl Wisbrock, “Climbing the Falls”, both done in vibrant golds, rich viridian greens and subtle blues, immerse the viewer in teeming water. of life. Ewing’s water lilies provide a calming and peaceful presence, while Wisbrock’s water is charged with the electricity of strong current and adventure.
Still hosted by an artist, Gallery One is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily at 32 Atlantic Ave., Route 26, in Ocean View.
