Marcia Burt Gallery

Lure of the shore animates these paintings and photographs of the coastal experience created by our gallery artists.

Ocean overlook paintings by Erling Sjovold and Ian Roberts show water pushing in and rising above the land, threatening to spill over and outside the frame. The distant ocean, created by Marilee Krause with a blue stripe of watercolor bleeding over a brown hillside, promises something bigger, just ahead, beckoning us to venture to the coast.

The inlets in Jeff Yeomans’ and Marilyn Turtz’s paintings spawn upside-down worlds in reflections. Bluffs and trees undulate at the slightest breeze from across the water.

Wet sand distorts surroundings into flat shapes and streaks of color in Patricia Doyle’s paintings that find abstraction in the real, in a surface both porous and reflective.

Marcia Burtt and Anne Ward bring us closer to the ocean, expanding vistas of the shoreline right up to where the artists stood with their easels in the wet sand. The greater curve of the coast and repetitively breaking waves pull us into their day at the beach.

Ann Lofquist and Michael Ferguson survey the tactile coast of green- speckled, moss-covered rocks. Rise and surge of salt water, and foam formed from white washes over blues, grays, and greens evolve into a splash of thick white paint, generating waves crashing on rocky shores.

Susan Petty and Bill Dewey step into the water and stop motion to portray the variety of textures, detritus, and colors that are impossible to see when the ocean is moving. Their art suspends animation. Using brushstrokes and the speed of a camera shutter, they take us into an underwater realm.
