August Press Release
Work on display through August 31, 2019
Helen Roy "Celebration of Color, Acrylic and Oil on Canvas and Wood"
An artist and educator living in Westerly, Rhode Island; Helen considers herself fortunate to have had the opportunity to fall in love with painting after 30 years as a Learning Specialist. She recognizes that the first reaction to visual art is what is seen, but believes the most important response is how a painting makes the viewer feel. Roy's mediums are acrylic or oil. Some of her work consists of clean lines and geometric shapes, while other pieces are abstract seascapes or non-representational. The artist tries to challenge expectations and perceptions by using balance, color, shapes, lines and a palette knife to encourage both movement and capture emotion.
Suzanne Housley-Noonan "Painted Threads, Textiles & Embroidery Fine Art"
Suzanne uses paint and a needle to recreate the sublime beauty of our natural environment. She utilizes the movement between sewing and painting to create a balance between paint and threads. With photos and sketches being the starting point for each creation, Suzanne includes all kinds of hand and machine stitches and often some elements of other fiber techniques such as dyeing, fusing, beading, and cut and slashing the fabric. Suzanne studied textile design at RISD and is a member of several art and fabric associations.
