The Bowersock Gallery’s next show featuring two artists who couldn’t be more dissimilar.
One works in oils, the other encaustic; one depicts humans, the other movement through patterns; the former treats her canvas with short, strong strokes of the brush, while the latter prefers encaustic’s fluidity.
As different as they are Jayne Adams and Kim Bernard both create dynamic works, each bold in a distinctive way.
“Jayne’s current series explores men at work. There’s a ‘common’ natural strength implied in each narrative. These men dressed in T-shirts and jeans, splitting wood, laying stone, building with their hands have a sense of nobility about them,” says Steve Bowersock, co curator.
Then there is Kim Bernard, the founding member of New England Wax.
“Kim’s work is more Spartan, fluid, yet equally bold. It simultaneously conveys a kinetic and still quality. Kim is simply one of the foremost in her field today,” says Bowersock.
The show opens at the Bowersock Gallery in Provincetown with a reception 7-9 p.m. Friday, July 1. The exhibit runs through July 26t.
