The May show “Double Vision” by the artists off Gallery One is being made available online April 29 through June 2, the gallery announced this week.

This month’s theme at Gallery One is “Double Vision,” and the artists are exploring their perceptions of double vision in reflections and pairs in unique ways. Michelle Marshall’s acrylic painting “Two by the Sea,” with a vast evening sky reflected in the marsh and a pair of egrets heading home, incorporates both.
Although reflecting very different locales, artists Laura Hickman and Dale Sheldon both feature architectural elements in their works.
In Hickman’s pastel painting, “Reflections,” the canal’s reflection of buildings in Burano, Italy, is her version of a double vision. The still, but slightly moving water is mirroring the image above, creating two visions of the colorful primary complementary blue and orange facades.
Sheldon’s acrylic painting “Two Cottages,” illustrates two old Rehoboth Beach cottages, one of which is slated for demolition — the Joseph House, which was built in 1922. It’s nextdoor neighbor, at 415 Rehoboth Avenue, is a two-story cottage with the iconic cottage architecture found in the beach town in the early 1900s. Images of the two have been captured and preserved on canvas.
Jeanne Mueller’s oil painting “Kayak Ride” and Lesley McCaskill’s acrylic painting “Promenade by the Shore” depict pleasant summer memories. Water creates “Double Visions,” and in McCaskill’s painting, the many shades of blue swirl around the multiple pairs of beachcombers enjoying the day.
Cheryl Wisbrock’s, Joyce Condry’s and Marybeth Paterson’s paintings bring shore birds to life on canvas in doubles. Wisbrock’s “Two’s Company,” in watercolor, was painted plein air along the edge of the bay on a balmy, overcast day. In Condry’s acrylic painting “Watching the Fog Come In,” two is company, as she utilizes the square format and color and scumbling in depicting the misty fog enveloping the pair. “Soulmates,” an oil painting by Paterson, features sandpipers and their reflections.
