FREDERICK, Md. (PRWEB) January 05, 2018
The ArtistAngle Gallery is opening an exhibition featuring works inspired by the painting ‘Woman with a Coffee Pot’, by French Impressionist Paul Cézanne. The exhibition will open with an artist reception on January 6th from 3:00 PM - 7:00 PM. The exhibit will display the works of fourteen local artists who were selected based on their genre and modality of art. Works will be on display from January 6th - February 17th. Patrons will have the opportunity to place silent bids for their favorite artworks from the exhibition.
Inspired by the Masters is a collaboration between the ArtistAngle Gallery and artist Rebecca LaChance of Rebecca LaChance Art and Photography. The idea behind the exhibit was for current artists of different genres to create a work of art inspired by a painting by one of the masters.
“I deliberately selected Cézanne and this painting because his works generate strong feelings among artists and viewers,” says Rebecca. ‘Women with a Coffee Pot’ was said to be a significant step in Cézanne’s style.
LaChance also invited New York artist Adam Marelli to speak at the gallery on January 11th from 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM. Marelli will be a leading a talk entitled “Becoming an Artist; The myths, half-truths, and convoluted road to being an artist.” He will share his own developmental experiences as well as the historical accounts of famous artists who failed multiple times before they succeeded. Tickets for Marelli’s talk are available for purchase on the ArtistAngle Gallery website under the Artists Talks tab.
“I absolutely love the idea of hosting this type of invitation to the artists and to the public. It is a wonderful way to start the new year and an excellent lead for the five-month series on the teachings of Myron Barnstone that follow in March,” says Jennifer Finley, gallery owner.
ArtistAngle Gallery is located on the east side of historic downtown Frederick on the corner of South Carroll and Commerce Streets. Once an old granary, the current gallery space is a masterpiece in itself. The gallery features work from local, regional and national artists. Exhibits rotate every 4 to 6 weeks and are normally scheduled up to one year in advance. Throughout the year the gallery hosts art and custom framing related demonstrations and lectures for artists and art lovers.
