Gallery One in Ocean View this week announced its September show theme, “Welcome to my World,” which will be open to the public Sept. 3-30. “Welcome to my world” is designed to be an invitation to glimpse and participate in realm of the Gallery One artists’ world. Each artist has a unique view, and each painting a different thought.
Dale Sheldon’s “Autumn Near Greve” glows with the “glorious colors seen in autumn in Tuscany, which are a feast for the eyes. The rich golds of the fields play against the cool hillsides in the distance, and the dramatic dark greens found in the trees complement the iconic red roofs.”
“View from my Garden” is the path Laura Hickman takes every day in her “summer world.” Watering the flowers and pool cleaning are never a chore. Sunlit grass and colorful flowers are so preferable to her “winter” world, she said.
Joyce Condry’s mixed-media painting “Waste Not Want Not” describes the evolutionary aspects of a painting. “I just can’t throw anything away! If a painting isn’t working, I might be able to make it work someday.”
Busy, busy, busy is the world of Jeanne Mueller. “Sunset at White’s Creek,” an oil on canvas, describes her happiest moments of “sitting on the patio and watching Mother Nature paint her colors.”
“Low Tide” is a subject that Dianne Shearon returns to frequently. “I live so close to the ocean and our beautiful beaches and marshes. It has become what I love to paint… what a wonderful world.”
“The simplicity of our coast is so meditative as I walk the shoreline” explained Lesley McCaskill. Her watercolor painting “Jetty” depicts the undulating water as it gathers in soft curves and contrasts with the verticals of the man-made jetties and columns of condos in the distance.
“Welcome to my World” will run from Sept. 3 to 30. The gallery’s Artisan Room features textiles, hand-blown glass, pottery, glass jewelry and wood pieces by local artists. The gallery is open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is always staffed by one of the artists.
