Spring Harvest, Bowersock Gallery's inaugural 2023-24 season exhibit, will introduce new artists, fresh works by favorites, and a sneak peek of things to come.
The show opens Friday, May 26th, 2023 with a reception from 7-9 pm at Bowersock Gallery, 373 Commercial Street, Provincetown, MA; the show will run through June 15th.
Artists work year-round, of course. But long, dark winter nights engender reflective works, and lots of them, as the latest gallery collection would seem to attest. Much work for the season has already been previewed and it's quite an exquisite bounty of exceptional art!
Bowersock Gallery is proud to introduce new artists into the gallery, some of whom will be introduced at Spring Harvest, including sculptor Charles Kibby. Kibby's abstract nature-influenced, stone-assemblage pieces are simultaneously warm and edgy. The vertical, parametric-design towers emit a soft light from within, transforming stonework into a more vibrant and expressive medium. It has taken many years of searching but the gallery is honored to bring in such a talented artist who creates exciting and unique indoor/outdoor sculptures, works that are intriguing and truly stunning.
Sculptor John Brickels, relatively new to the gallery yet already with a committed international following, will also have numerous works on display. Brickels is known for his intricately detailed boats and stylized Boston row houses. Featured sneak peeks of new works by stable artists include Darlou Gams’ evocative, moody, tonal, landscapes in oil, Steve Bowersock's emotional, surreal oils, and Emma Ashby's masterfully executed encaustic landscapes, all-new, given her sold-out show last year. Both painters Sheila Barbone (Provincetown scenes) and Kevin Kusiolek (sea and cityscapes) will be presenting as well. And of course, the rest of the Bowersock stable will be represented, featuring: landscapes, still-life, figurative and abstract pieces, from traditional painting to sculpture, beaded works, mâché, clay, encaustic, wood, mixed media, glass, and bronze, a true feast for the senses, a multitude of mediums.
The gallery is gearing up for an exciting year with all of our favorite artists returning, along with fresh new talent, and we can’t wait to share!
