First Friday at Carver Hill Gallery
Rockland — Carver Hill Gallery, 338 Main St., will show new work by Adriance DeGroff and Laurie Goddard in the Upstairs Gallery during the First Friday art walk, Sept. 7 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Goddard's new work is a continued reflection of time spent in Italy, Japan, the Middle East and her home in Western Massachusetts. Intertwined with observations of everyday life, her visual narratives are distillations of the many cultures she has experienced in her travels. The gallery will show smaller works on paper; and acrylic and metal leaf on panel, as well as a few larger works on panel.
DeGroff will show several new smaller works. Primarily influenced by realism, her personal painting style combines 200-year-old British influence with early American folk art. In these new pieces, however, she has chosen a realistic interpretation of living still life in the form of flowers and fruits, pastoral landscapes and portraits and figures inspired by goddesses, divas and the Madonna.
Carver Hill also features Megan Hinton's abstracted landscapes in oil on linen, photographs of monks in Bhutan by Jon Kolkin, and abstract expressions in acrylic on Yupo by David Estey. The street level of the gallery will host the last week of America Martin's "Through the Eyes of America" solo show of Modernist influenced acrylic and oils on canvas. Five brand new smaller works on paper will be exhibited for the first time as an addition to this show. Lisa Svedberg and Tom Whiting will continue to show 22K gold and stone jewelry.
Gallery hours are Mondays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 594-7745 or visit carverhillgallery.com.
