August 4th
Jim Holland and Brandon Newton
August 4, 2016 - September 5, 2016

 

Artists' Reception Thursday, August 4th from 5-7pm.  Both artists will be in attendance.

 

Jim Holland has held a life-long admiration for Edward Hopper; hence, his work is marked by stripped-down realism and a sense of solitude. Enduring themes in Holland's paintings are of the light and space near the ocean. His work has been exhibited throughout the Northeast and is included in numerous private and institutional collections in the United States and Europe.

Brandon Newton paints with oil and a palette knife. His works glow with strong light and expressive sweeps of color. Inspired by an en plein air artist named Clifford Stterthwaite, Newton says he would see him almost every day painting. "His work made me see the world more clearly. That's what sparked me with the thought that you can really make a living by painting." Newton lives with his wife and four children on Martha's Vineyard.
