Anne is a painter of impressionist works in acrylic paint. Her technique includes photographing the subject sketching the work on the surface in paint, and developing the completed painting in the studio through the layering of colors. Subjects are landscapes, seascapes, and close-ups in nature.

Jack Mara

 
Your first thought may be about the name – Why JibeMaster? . The jibe is a sailing term describing a specific move to change your direction.

Like a jibe, a special image can initiate a change in direction, emotion or mood. Discovering an image that “talks to you” can be inspiring or calming and should never be ignored. It can take you to a place that only you appreciate; or bring you to somewhere new and exciting; it can help to start you upon a new journey; or help you to discover a new passion; or result in self-reflection. The possibilities are endless. I hope that you will view my images and experience something new, perhaps even a change in direction - your very own “perfect jibe.”

Sandra Hadley

 
Sandra works in charcoal to explore and celebrate the world beyond color. Working with the nuances of tone, light and line, she strives to capture the essential truth about each of her subjects and transcends the physical. Without the visual of color, she allows us to see people, places and objects in an unexpected context that creates an opportunity to rediscover the often overlooked and unfamiliar.

Timeless Furniture by Kirsten Mierjeski
 
 
 

Kirsten Mierjeski

 
Kirsten Mierjeski describes her art form as influenced by taking elements of European, Mexican, and Folk Design and creating visual yet functional home decor. Kirsten's background in merchandising and design has taken her skills to another palette creating one-of-a-kind furniture pieces for the home atmosphere.

Kirsten has collected boxes and furniture over the years but it is her fascination with each piece that gives it a new life and energy. Taking something ordinary and transforming the table or chair or ornate box gives personal satisfaction but also public joy.

The Gallery on Main is pleased to represent the diverse palette of Kirsten Mierjeski!

Richard Vecchione

 
Dick Vecchione worked as a graphic designer on Cape Cod for over 40 years, designing logos and printed materials for all types of businesses, with a client list that included: The International Fund for Animal Welfare, Cape Abilities, The Danial Webster Inn, Heritage Plantation, and many more.

When he retired he resumed painting for pleasure. His watercolors and their almost photographic like detail have won acclaim and awards since he started exhibiting. His watercolor Facing the Wind recently won "Best of Show" at the Cape Cod Art Center exhibit Essence of Winter. AT the same exhibit one of his first acrylics one First Place.

He tries to realistically capture the scenes and seasons of the Cape he loves with its quiet beauty and simple lines. He finds the watercolor medium suits this desire best, although it can be unforgiving.

Dick is just starting to exhibit locally but more of his work can be seen at RVCapeCodArt.com.
