The November show at In Town Gallery marks the arrival of new works as the gallery refreshes twice a year. From May to November both artists and craftspeople work to create a new body of work. There will be an opening reception on Friday from 5-8 p.m. at 26A Frazier Ave.
There will be works by Marie Bergheimer, Margaret Park and Linda Wicksell.
Review for the artists:
Marie Bergheimer, born in Savannah, Ga., received a BFA in painting and drawing from UTC. Ms. Bergheimer draws on her early memories of the low country: tidal waters, salt marshes beaches and horizons. Her “Oratorio” series is inspired by small niches found in walls throughout the Mediterranean world.
Chicago transplant, Margaret Park, studied at several area art schools including American Academy of Art and School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Eye catching and colorful, floral watercolors are carefully planned then take on lives of their own during the execution of the works. Strong light plays an important part in her series of tree paintings.
Linda Wicksell grew up in Massachusetts and studied at the Modern School of Fashion Design in Boston. Later living in California was followed by 28 years in Maryland, where she worked in banking. Years of art study and taking workshops created the foundation for the abstract expressionist works in pastel and acrylic she now produces.
