September Art Show “Honoring an Everyday Object” Martha Werman
Sep 1 @ 12:00 am – Sep 30 @ 12:00 am
September Art Show "Honoring an Everyday Object" Martha Werman

The Crowell Gallery is pleased to share the work of Martha Werman throughout the month of September.  Visitors should expect to see work spanning a number of years, showcasing a variety of media and method.  Werman’s journey through the arts began in Scandinavia in 1967. working as a choreographer, teacher, and performer of modern dance, and owned a small dance school in Trondheim, Norway.   In the early 90’s in Cambridge, MA, she belonged to “Reclamation Artists”, a group of artists and designers producing temporary installations in vacant lots in Greater Boston.

“Some of the work presented in the show is from class assignments, others are for pleasure.  Or rather, I should say, it is all for pleasure, I could not live happily without it.  Watercolors date from 1996 and acrylics (decorative aspect) from 1998 on.  I received my Certificate for Decorative Painting from RISD in 2007.  My work in oil began in 2011 when I took painting classes at Mass College of Art and Design with Catherine Kehoe and Nancy McCarthy.   I now study with Jason Alden at the Drawing Studio, Brattleboro, taking drawing and attending open studio for critique on my work.”

“I find I use my eye continuously in my environment:  the interiors of houses, walls, floors, stairs, and plants, even desiccated vegetables, all become elements of geometry enhanced by shadow and light.  Random juxtapositions catch my attention.  What I choose to paint becomes exciting, as in creating a concept and nurturing it (e.g. making a series) or, recently, when drawing/painting portraits.  I challenge myself to share with the viewer the novelty of such an image to awaken in him or her a new perspective.”

“Honoring an Everyday Object” is one of many exhibits of local artists showing at the Crowell Gallery in 2020. The gallery is in the rear of the Moore Free Library and is open during library hours.  The library observes Covid-19 guidelines and will limit the number of patrons inside the gallery.  Tues. 1-5, Wed 2-6, Thurs 1-5, Fri 2-6, Sat 10 – 2.
