Holiday show in the South End

Nov 30, 2012
“Going Home” is an acrylic painting by Deborah Winship of Rockland, who will share her South End home with artist Autumn Cipala in a weekend holiday show.

Rockland — Two artists who live and work in the city's South End are teaming up for their fourth joint  holiday show. Visitors are invited to the Winship Gallery at 53 Fulton St. to see the delicate porcelain ceramics of Autumn Cipala and the multimedia paintings, cards and prints of Deborah Winship in a warm holiday setting.  The gallery will be open Saturday, Dec. 8 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, Dec. 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Cipala's translucent porcelain pieces are thrown on a potter’s wheel, and the surface decoration is achieved by drawing, carving or piercing into the clay. Her works display an attention to the subtle details of form, surface and function. Inspirations from her research of historical ceramics and travels to Morocco as a presenting artist at the Akal Exchange can be seen in her current body of work.

Winship recently presented a flash view of her 35-year art career on the coast to a rousing full house at the PechaKucha Night held at Thompson Community Center in Union. Her work also can be seen this year in the Caldbeck Gallery’s holiday show.

Annie Ladley Mahoney, South End painter and quiltmaker, will be showing her latest art quilts during the weekend, as well. For more information, contact Winship Gallery at 594-5321 or
