ARTery Gallery,“New Year, New Art”, a New Gallery show containing NEW art created by our 16 artists and Artisans. Artist of the Month, Impressionist painter, Fabienne Bee.
Well, 2021 is in the rearview mirror and 2022 is finally here! In early January, the Front Street Building where the ARTery Gallery is located, decided to close down in January out of an abundance of caution due to high Statewide Covid Numbers. Please follow the ARTery at Front Street on Facebook so you can keep up to date news on all openings and closings. All plans are to re-open in February so we hope to see you back! The ARTery will be presenting “New Year, New Art”, a New Gallery show containing NEW art created by our artists and artisans that has never been on display in our Gallery before. This New Year, New Art exhibit will be on display for the month of January so drop in during our monthly open gallery times, 1st Fridays from 5 - 9pm, and 3rd Sundays from 11am – 4pm.
The ARTery would also like to introduce our highlighted Artist of the Month for January, Fabienne Bee. Bee is a colorful, and imaginative painter whose dynamic work appears to be glowing with light and is adorned with rich, luscious colors. Part of her secret is in her unique use of complementary colors and layering techniques. We do hope you will take time to come check out her amazing body of paintings currently on display at the ARTery in January, and meet this very personable artist.
Fabienne Bee is an Ohio based artist who has been honing her artistic talents off and on for most of her life. As a military spouse, she and her family have traveled and seen and lived in many places around the world. Her French heritage coupled with being exposed to many different styles of art through her years of living abroad bring a unique approach to her paintings. Bee said her work is greatly inspired and influenced by the great Impressionist painters of old like Monet, for his use of color, Pissarro for his landscapes and Cezanne’s early work in particular in regard to his use of color and his landscape paintings.
Fabienne’s art begins with a classical approach in landscapes, but she doesn’t stop there. She finds inspiration in playing with the mood of a scene and exaggerating colors to achieve a heightened sense of her awe for nature and its many hidden beauties. Her hope is that her paintings will transport the viewer to another place and time, filling them with a sense of peace and calm, giving them an opportunity to escape the fast pace and hecticness of our world today. “Spring Morning” is a 15”x18” Acrylic Painting of Bee’s capturing the quite stillness and serene beauty of a forest at daybreak. This piece and many more are currently on display at the ARTery Gallery.
The ARTery Gallery currently has Artists and Artisans with work on display including Watercolor, Acrylic, and Oil Painting, Digital art, Photography, Mixed Media, Printmaking, Ceramics, Jewelry, Fiber Art and Sculpture. Open Each Month 1st Friday 5-9 & 3rd Sunday, 11-4.
