Curator Anastasia Rogers scored and evaluated numerous members from the KiptonART registry that features over 950+ artists. Nine promising talents who are living and working in New York were selected: Julie Combal, Marc Dimov, Zac Gross, William T Hillman, James Kennedy, Avery McCarthy, Jonathan Pozniak, Paul Seftel and Jim Sperber. Meet each of the artists here: The exhibition is open to the public from July 11 - September 6, 2010.

This exhibition PASSAGES features nine artists who are interested in Impressionism as they play with nature and express a personal observation of their surroundings. They have created an impression from which viewers gain pleasure, rather than gaining an absolute understanding. Shadowing the father of this renowned artistic movement (Monet), the artists use multi-media techniques to deliver a representational depiction of the movement of light and the passage of time. "I am excited to be debuting our first Nantucket show at Vanessa Noel's Seven Seas Gallery. This is the perfect opportunity to provide greater access for our artists." -- KiptonART founder, Kipton Cronkite

Julie Combal's visible brush strokes, unusual angles and contrasting reflections aim to mystify the viewer's experience of her paintings. Marc Dimov utilizes natural light and is further aided by digital techniques to launch his audience into the perception of a fantastic locale. Zac Gross' painterly canvases depict nautical scenes using a limited palette, following in the Impressionist tradition of 'en plein air': bringing the studio outside. William T Hillman's photographs are glossy cibachrome prints, creating the sensation in the eye viewing the subject, rather than accurately recreating the subject.

Each of the nine exhibited artists challenge the critical perception of nature through another individual's lens. Some works provide a glimpse of optimism and renewal, while others tell a personal narrative of a specific setting. Their commonality lies in the artists' success in capturing the essence of their subjects and in delivering an impression.

PASSAGES will be exhibited from July 10 through September 6, 2010. The Seven Seas Gallery is located at 46 Center St, Nantucket MA. For more information contact info(at)KiptonART(dot)com. RSVP for the opening reception here -
