New Members 2015

August 18 – 29th

Reception August 20th, 5-8 pm

Six members of the Blue Mountain Gallery will be represented in an exhibit from August 16th to August 29th.  This end of summer special installation features new gallery members Mary Lou Alberetti, Bob Alberetti, Joan Marie Kelly and Pamela Boily, and returning members Michael Chelminski and Gina Sawin. The works include a wide variety of themes and media, and represent the ongoing dialogue between abstraction and representation in which Blue Mountain has been long engaged. Click on the names below to find out more about each artist.

MaryLou Alberetti, Andaluz, 30x36 mixed media  In MaryLou Alberetti ’s mixed media compositions, architectural references, some literal, some more abstract, offer an aura of timelessness and antiquity through the surfaces of multi-layered colors and textures.

Robert Alberetti, Past Present, 36x42" oil   Influenced by his travels and research in Italy, France, Turkey, Spain and Ireland, Bob Alberetti ’s work reflects his love of color, the unique qualities of materials and the emotional responses evoked from abstraction. He works in oil, collage, mixed media, watercolor and encaustic.

boily   Pamela Boily   has woven the theme of natural disasters, such as Hurricane Katrina in her once home state of Louisianna, and their aftermath into her work, which reflects the fragility of the human condition and how nature can disrupt an ordered life in an instant.

michael cheminski      Michael Chelminski  deeply explores the dynamic relationship between abstraction and painting directly from nature, as his work has evolved over the years from more traditional landscapes to a more abstracted synthesis of sensory awareness.

kelly for new members   Joan Marie Kelly is a social art practitioner, implementing participatory art workshops with micro-communities of Indonesia, India, and other parts of the globe, in order to expose and gain understanding of visual iconography embedded in those cultures.

sawin for new members 600 px   For Gina Sawin , birds symbolize delicate ecological balances and, as a motif in her paintings, they suggest our spiritual – and perhaps tenuous – connection to the planet.
