14 Aug Double Vision in Color
Artists’ Gallery at Taylor’s Collective, September 2019
Marian Gliese and Debbie Hoeper bring their individual visions of the natural world together to create “Double Vision in Color” for the month of September, Artists’ Gallery at Taylor’s Collective. The show runs from August 27-September 29, 2019 with a reception on Saturday, September 14 from 4-6 p.m. Their reception is in conjunction with the Howard County Road to the Arts Celebration.
Marian Gliese paints bold, colorful, feminine and decorative oil paintings. Each painting vibrates with life and celebrates nature’s glory. She seeks the sensuous quality of her subjects to make her paintings show their inner depth. Gliese creates a visual language of her own and her art is passionate and alive and presents itself with a compelling presence.
Gliese was born and raised in Denmark, but has been a resident of Maryland since 2000. She has been a member of the Artists’ Gallery since 2005 and president since 2015.
While Deborah Hoeper began her career as a representational painter, her recent landscapes are more abstract than realistic.
She says of her work: “I enjoy working with color, creating subtle changes rather than changes of value. My paintings are based upon an emotional reaction to the landscape and I strive to capture the illusion of a place or a mysterious scene. I don’t put figures in my paintings because I want the viewer to be uninterrupted and drawn into and connected to the painting.” A native West Virginian, Hoeper resides in Maryland and has had a studio at Passageways in Riverdale, Maryland for more than twenty years. She has exhibited her work in many local galleries and is a charter member of Artists’ Gallery. She is an artist member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society.
