Panopticon artist Stephen Sheffield will open the doors to his studio space this weekend as part of Cohasset's Open Studios. Visit him November 18-19 from 12-4pm and see where he creates his photographs, mixed media pieces, and other works of art.
Still, at a time when the future of our oceans is uncertain, At Sea avoids sentimentality. This show isn’t so nostalgic as it is mysterious...These pictures take us far from home– at times, they might even frighten us– and in the end, that’s what draws us to them. See At Sea at Panopticon Gallery through October 31st, 2017.
With work as varied as the sea itself, the artists in this exhibit capture its moody changeability, from serene calm to portent turbulence. Amy Friend’s spaciously composed seascapes recall languid summer afternoons at the beach, our hazy dreams conjured in her frothy, hand-painted surf. Diana H. Bloomfield’s delicately layered tri-color gum bichromate prints achieve a nostalgic palette and texture in her tranquil, fluid meditations.
