New York, NY (PRWEB) October 1, 2010
New paintings by artist Hilda Green Demsky will be shown in her solo exhibition at Pleiades Gallery, 530 West 25th Street, 4th Floor in Chelsea from November 2nd through November 27th. Two opening receptions will be held for the exhibition, on Thursday evening November 4th from 6 to 9 p.m. and on Saturday evening, November 6th from 3 to 6 p.m. There will be complimentary refreshments and live music at the receptions. All are invited to attend.
Eleanor Heartney, Contributing Editor of Art in America, wrote in the catalog of Ms. Demsky's exhibition at The National Gallery of Costa Rica: "Demsky's waterfalls put us back in touch with an essential part of our own natures. Elemental and powerful, they urge us to put aside the materialism and egotism of contemporary life and celebrate the natural world."
Ms. Demsky is an artist who is thoroughly connected to the earth by painting its water. Having traveled the world over as a recipient of many national and international awards, her art calls the viewing public to awareness of the earth's beauty and natural resources. Ms. Demsky merges abstraction with reality as she paints the Atlantic Ocean from Ireland to Maine on canvas and aluminum. The artist continues to explore the reflective qualities of light and the terrain. Demsky's landscapes are specific and recognizable. She records moments of tranquility and the forces of water.
The paintings reflect her artist residencies at Acadia National Park in Maine and an international residency in County Kerry, Ireland. She said, "It was the cliffs, sparkling waters, mists and tides that captivated me," in her exhibition, entitled "The Atlantic from Ireland to Maine. Painting on aluminum reflects the light and approximates the ephemeral effects of water in the landscape."
