September 26 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
John Gamache, Rue de l’Eglise Chauvincourt-Provemont, France, Oil on linen, 12 x 24″
On Thursday, September 26, 2019, join us as artist John Gamache shows some of his original finished oil paintings, assemblages, and a few new works in progress. He’ll discuss portrait, still life, and landscape painting, describing his process and sharing thoughts on how he works with each genre.
John’s early training was completed at the Swain School of Design in New Bedford, Massachusetts and at Southeastern Massachusetts University. He spent many years after working as a freelance illustrator and designer for advertising agencies, publishing companies, and corporations. Within the last several years he has returned to fine art, showing his personal works to the public. He considers his artistic schooling to have been “intensely” classical, and acknowledges that the creation of art is intertwined with his life. “I guess you could say that I’m in ‘school’ every day,” he jokes. “And yes, I suppose I will graduate someday.”
John works in a traditional style of painting, but is unconventional in the application and type of surface materials he uses in some of his works. His current body of work utilizes this style to create fascinating pieces reminiscent of his past artistic influences.
In addition to this fascinating Artist Talk event, John will also provide information on his upcoming Landscape Painting Workshop, which he’ll teach at the Museum on Saturday, October 26 and Sunday October 27, 2019.
