Aubré Duncan joins Gallery One in Ocean View


Gallery One, a co-op art gallery in Ocean View, this week announced that watercolor artist Aubrè Duncan has joined the gallery as a partner.

“Aubrè’s watercolors bring a fresh, new point of view this fine art gallery,” they said. “Aubrè’s art is bright and bold, colorful and contemporary. She paints with a limited palette of three colors; her edges are crisp and clear; shapes are simplified; themes are familiar and whimsical: bikes, beach chairs, boats, dogs in overalls, umbrellas in a field of flowers.”

Duncan attended art school with the intention of becoming a weaver but took courses in drawing, painting, printmaking, clay and glass. She fell in love with all of them. Graduating with a degree in art education, she moved to Vermont, where she taught in public and private high schools and a community college.

During that time she earned her master’s degree in fiber art and started a production weaving studio where she made tapestries and woven material. Her next move was to New Hampshire, where she began her artist life as a watercolorist. That has remained her passion and her professional life since she moved to Delaware 19 years ago. Duncan lives in Ocean View and works out of her home studio.
