“Caught in Time” Exhibit

July 5 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

During the month of July, The Artists’ Gallery will feature the work of exhibiting artist Marc Rubin. “Caught in Time” illustrates how Marc “pulls things from the debris of the world, objects we walk by daily.”

“Abiding Love,” by Marc Rubin

Marc explains, “These objects whisper their stories to me using their texture, weight, and humble presence. I bring the viewer eye-to-eye with them and let the objects speak for themselves. They say things like: I’m tired, but grateful. I’m beautiful, and I will die. I’m here – see me. Sometimes I put a twist in my painting, giving my objects a sense of whimsy, making them more provocative and interesting, but never forcing the concept. I like to evoke the idea of something rather than focus on the exactness.”

Overall, as a classical representational oil painter, Marc’s paintings exude a timeless quality. Painting from life, his rich use of color and finely developed eye for composition define his work with still life, harkening influences of the Dutch masters, including Rembrandt’s genius with light and shadow and Franz Hals’ exciting and visible brush strokes.

For 10 years, Marc was classically trained by his mentor and friend, Thomas Buechner, in upstate New York, and emerged from his art studies with a unique point of view. Today, he carries on the tradition of teaching/mentoring in the old Masters’ tradition and loves every minute of it. His teaching studio, Marc’s Art, provides customized group and private painting classes. Along with The Artists’ Gallery in Chestertown, Marc’s art may be seen at the Broadmoor Gallery in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Mary Woemer Fine Arts in West Palm Beach, Florida, and his studio in Elmira, New York. Previously, Marc taught fine art oil painting at Elmira College as an adjunct professor and was an instructor at 171 Cedar Arts Center, both in New York.

The Artists’ Gallery invites the public to its opening reception for Marc from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on First Friday, July 5 for light refreshments and to meet the artist. Marc’s paintings will be featured in The Artists’ Gallery throughout the month of July. the Artists’ Gallery is located at 239 High Street in Chestertown and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. For more information about The Artists’ Gallery, visit www.theartistsgalleryctown.com or call 410-778-2425.
