September Show

Landscapes and Seascapes - Sep 11 to Oct 5

Show Reception: Friday, September 12, 5 to 7 pm

"Gazing at Nympheas" by Dennis Perrin

Open Juried Show

Show Description - York and Beyond - Landscapes and Seascapes with a feeling of fall.

Juror and Featured Artist - Dennis Perrin

Dennis Perrin can best be described as a painter of light as it illuminates and describes the subject. Mr. Perrin always chooses to paint in front of the subject, not content to settle for photography or video as painting material. Dennis has been called a painterly American Impressionist in the Boston School

A former member of the Guild of Boston Artists, Mr. Perrin paints in order to express his great love for the beauty seen all around, especially in his immediate environment. Dennis studied at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Art with M. Dell Weller, who taught him the power of seeing and translating that vision into paint. He continues his studies exploring the subtleties of light through paint. Among his favorite subjects are the human figure, clothes and nude, flowers, still life, and the interior space, often populated with one or more figures. He is also an avid plain air painter of the New England landscape.

Pick up at Closing : Sunday-Monday, October 5-6 from 4:00-6:00 p.m.
