The public is invited to the reception for Sight-Lines, the 3rd two-woman show by members, Susanne Andover Keany and Mollie Keller in the Gallery. The show runs from 4/13 to 5/14.
“Sight-Lines,” which Webster dictionary defines as ‘a hypothetical line from someone’s eyes to what is seen,’ will be explored in the paintings and drawings.
Susanne Andover Keany lives and works in Weston, Connecticut. She paints in series based on themes from nature. Her current work is inspired by a trip she took to Cape Cod, last summer. Driving through New England in late summer on back roads was a familiar experience. It was nostalgic to visit the locale of her honeymoon and subsequent vacations. She became intrigued with her relationship to the landscape. This work explores the tension between the remembered and the present. Her paintings are an attempt to convey the mystery of the familiar.
Keany has exhibited widely in Connecticut, New York and Florida. She is a graduate of Barnard College and the School of Visual Arts at Purchase. She studied at the NY Studio school and with the late Robert Reed of Yale. Her work is in both private and corporate collections. More of her work can be seen at artplacegallery.org. Shown is her "Beach Dogs".
Mollie Keller is Trumbull-based. Her landscapes are portraits of all the places in her life, both real and imaginary ones, as they are, and as they seem to her as she looks out to whatever horizon beckons, be it in the park down the street, at the shore, along a highway exit ramp, or behind her eyelids.
Keller came to painting after a career as a historian/writer/archivist. She finds it a great privilege to be expressing herself in color and image after years of fine-tuning ideas with very precise words. Her work is in many private collections and may be viewed online at molliekeller.com.
