Rebecca Pry Zoe Cone
Saturdays and Sundays in March from noon to 4
Artist’s Reception Saturday, March 4, 5-8PM
An exhibit of paintings by three women artists will open the Amity Gallery season. Each interprets the forces and forms of Nature in her own way.
Rebecca Pry brings it into her world of imagination and whimsy–taking the viewer on a journey filled with saturated colors and patterns. She received a BFA from Rhode Island school of Design and her work has been published and used as design motifs in home goods and accessories. “As an artist in Warwick, I am never far from the source of my inspiration–as John Muir put it so perfectly, “The mountains are calling and I must go.”
Zoe Cone, who grew up in Warwick, works in a variety of media creating paintings and drawings based on fleeting moments, personal experiences and surroundings. “My wish is not to portray an exact replica of a dream for the viewer to fully comprehend, but rather create an environment that is familiar, though mutated.” She received a degree in visual arts from SUNY New Paltz.
Julia Grosso received a BFA from Syracuse University. Her inspirations reside in her connection to the Earth’s destructive reactions. She is intrigued by nature’s follow-up process of healing, growing back, and becoming new. These features apply to all forms of life on Earth. ”The process of making is the most important part of my work. While creating, I draw inspiration from my emotions and self-reflection. The rapid flux of my own feelings lends itself to action-based art making.”
