From Sea to Shining Sea
Updated: Jan 9
For Immediate Release - January 2020
The Stable Art Gallery in Ridgewood, NJ is pleased to welcome artist Emily Gilman Beezley, and announce the opening of her solo exhibition “From Sea to Shining Sea”. An Opening Reception is scheduled for Sunday, February 9 from 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Gilman Beezley’s exhibition of contemporary oil paintings and works on paper runs the gamut from Jersey Shore ocean-scapes to scenes of California’s Pacific Coast, literally “From Sea to Shining Sea”. In between, Gilman Beezley’s love of travel is reflected in artwork inspired by recurring trips to Maine, Arizona, Colorado and Virginia. Many of these paintings feature staccato brushwork and paint spatter along with a bold color palette relying heavily on Prussian blue, viridian and cadmium red. States Gilman Beezley: “I often create collections of artwork to explore a particular subject that has a deep and highly personal meaning for me. The “Ocean & Fish” series is based on idyllic summers spent with extended family at the Jersey Shore. The “Ballet Rehearsal” series is inspired by my love of dance and costume design.”
Primarily an oil painter, Gilman Beezley recently rediscovered her love of monotypes - a form of printmaking that results in a a one-of- a-kind image. Using black etching ink to create the initial image on paper or canvas, Gilman Beezley frequently adds combinations of oil paint, acrylic medium, watercolor and pastel for color and dimension. “Because monotypes can be done quickly, I am able to realize more immediate results tapping into my stream of consciousness.”
Emily Gilman Beezley was born and raised in Jackson Heights, NY and studied watercolor, printmaking and oil painting at the H.S. of Art & Design, Colgate University, the École des Beaux-Arts in Dijon, France, the Art Student’s League of New York and Parsons School of Design. Her work can be seen in galleries, juried exhibitions and private collections throughout the US and abroad. She is curator of the Glen Rock Public Library Art Gallery, founder of Springboard, an artist mentoring community, and a member of Studio Montclair; Monmouth County Arts Council; Belmar Art Council; The Art of Tuesday Night; The Art Center of Northern NJ, Shrewsbury Guild of Creative Art and Monmouth Museum.
