Picturesque Colors of Seascapes and Landscapes provide inspiration for Bonita Glaser’s October show “In the Moment,” Artists’ Gallery at Taylor’s Collective.

The show runs from October 1 through November 2, 2019, with a reception on Saturday, October 5, from 3-5pm.

Glaser’s work reflects her perception of the familiar environment that is part of her daily experience. Raised in rural Pennsylvania, she has a particular affinity for plein air painting of the countryside. Maryland’s landscape is linked to her childhood memories of the bucolic scenes of rural Pennsylvania that influenced her earliest paintings.

“The beauty of seascapes and the Maryland landscape have been the subjects of many of my recent paintings. This October they will be featured in my exhibition at Artists’ Gallery,” commented Glaser. “This show also includes some of my plein air paintings from the yearly Howard County Arts Council’s, “Paint It”, a July painting weekend on Main Street in Old Ellicott City.”

A graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Glaser began her career as a commercial artist and illustrator at the Wall Street Journal’s National Observer in Silver Spring, Maryland. Her studies with master-painter Skip Lawrence redefined her approach to watercolor painting.

She is an active member of the Howard County art community, a founding member of Artists’ Gallery in Ellicott City and a signature member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society. Participating in many local and regional juried exhibitions, she has had many solo exhibitions, winning awards for her work. Her paintings and commissioned work are in many private collections.

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.

“The Camera and the Brush” at Artists’ Gallery, month of June 2019

Local artist Pauline Rakis and photographer Jerry Weinstein will present a show of paintings and photographs in their upcoming show, “The Camera and the Brush” at Artists’ Gallery. The show runs from May 28-June30 with a reception on Saturday, June 8 from 4-6 p.m. at Artists’ Gallery, 8197 Main St., Ellicott City, Md.

The elements of the world around us can be depicted by either the photographers’s lens or the artist’s brush. Both are intended to draw the attention of the viewer. The lens
captures the artistry of nature, a moment in time, and architectural structure. The brush brings nature to the viewer through the imagination of the artist. The use of vibrant color, deep and varied texture, and unusual shapes bring the images to life.

Rakis will display a group of acrylic paintings that sometimes incorporate elements of collage, while Weinstein’s works are photographs captured during his recent travels to the Baltic States, Spain and Portugal. The show highlights how two very different artistic media can result in interesting and beautiful imagery.

Pauline Rakis
Rakis employs the art of discovery in her paintings, laying down shapes and colors to bring out unexpected images that can be further developed as the work progresses. She works in both representational and abstract genres and prefers acrylic paint because of its flexibility. She primes her selected support with gesso and a bright undercoat of paint, which gives a luminosity to the piece when portions are left uncovered as other layers of paint are applied. In her collages, she uses acrylic paint, and often colors her own art tissue with rusted items sprayed with water and vinegar that are allowed to drip onto the paper to create a variety of interesting shapes and colors.

Rakis has been featured in many solo and group shows; has won numerous awards for her abstract, still life and portrait paintings; and her was featured in the Baltimore Sun.

Jerry Weinstein
Weinstein uses the camera to capture the artistry of nature — color, shape, pattern and texture — in even the most commonplace elements of the world around us. From his backyard to the world at large, he keeps his eyes open and his camera ready for every photographic opportunity. As he travels, he finds images that capture a sense of location as well as the beauty of these distant places. Weinstein’s travel photography includes landscapes and local people in faraway places such as Mongolia, Tibet, Kenya and Patagonia, as well as spectacular vistas in the U.S.

He has been photographing nature for five decades, initially focusing on close up views of flowers and plants to bring a perspective often missed, such as small colorful mushrooms on the forest floor or the color and patterns of the innermost portion of a flower blossom. He has more recently been photographing animals and birds (especially birds in flight) in their natural habitats, unsullied by the interference of human hands.

He hopes that bringing awareness of the great beauty that surrounds us will inspire people to preserve it for themselves and for future generations.
