Representational Art in a New England Town
Collins Galleries is a beautifully appointed art gallery in the center of Cape Cod and offers some of the finest artwork produced today. Owner Alison Collins established the business in a coastal classic house in 2011 as a place to showcase the work of accomplished representational artists who prefer to work directly from life.
The gallery is located in Orleans, Massachusetts, a popular coastal destination on Cape Cod that attracts heavy tourism during the summer months. I am honored to be invited to submit my work for the Summer Salon, a group exhibition running from July 14 to 28 with an opening reception Saturday evening, July 14 from 5 to 7 pm. All are welcome.
The pieces I have submitted to the salon reflect a fascination with wildlife, especially birds, and offer a portrait-like presentation that brings the subject close. Viewed in a simple composition, the paintings offer a peaceful way to appreciate the intricate beauty of these fragile creatures, many of whom struggle to survive in a world increasingly used up by man's continued growth and sometimes careless way of treating their surroundings.
