Dick Copello and Linda Pedersen
October 24, through November 19, 2017
Reception, Friday, November 4, 6:00 to 8:30 PM
Musical Entertainment provided by The Driftway Jazz
If you would love to see a new painting above your mantel, you will find the perfect one among the paintings, photographs, and prints of ocean, beach, boats, lighthouses and still life being offered by Gallery artists from October 24th through November 19th at the Front Street Art Gallery in Scituate Harbor. A First Friday reception will be held on November 3rd, 6 to 8:30 PM.
Dick Copello, one of the featured artists in the show, blossomed under the mentoring of Richard Michael Gibney of Rockport, MA. A lifelong relationship began and Gibney’s belief that, as an artist, one should work in as many mediums as possible are reflected in Copello’s work. This philosophy applies to subject matter as well and Dick’s broad range of thematic choices including wildlife and birds, still-life, landscapes, seascapes, nudes, portraits, and architectural. Dick currently has devoted time to his other passions: fine woodworking, wood carving, stone carving, stained glass, poetry, music and gardening. Philosophically, he feels that an artist’s life is enriched by the pursuance of the creation of beauty in any medium or form.
Linda Pedersen, another one of the featured Gallery Artists, says that sometimes people expect photographs to be created in a defined, linear, and controlled sort of way, but she breaks the rules. She is drawn to subjects that tug at her as if she can’t breathe if she doesn’t preserve them on canvas to bring out the ethereal texture of them. She looks at a subject from every angle, searching for just the right light and “framing with my feet.” Linda’s fine art photographs have been displayed at member and juried art shows including Griffin Museum of Photography, Hull Artists, Hull Lifesaving Museum, North River Arts Society, Plymouth Art Guild, Scituate Art Association's Front Street Art Gallery, and South Shore Art Center.
