A midcareer retrospective
Februaury 2, 2015 - April 17, 2015
Gateway Gallery at GBCC is pleased to announce an art exhibition of paintings and drawings by featured artist, Lully Schwartz. A reception and evening lecture with Lully Schwartz will be held from 5 to 7 pm, Thurs., March 26 and the general public is welcome to attend. The topic for discussion will be ‘The Color of Art’ for art patrons, interior designers, students, artists and scholars. The reception will be catered by the Green Bean.
Lully’s paintings and drawings from the late 90’s to 2015 will be on view from Feb. 3 to April 17. Schwartz says - “I’m now enjoying the midcareer of my life as an artist. I’m pleased to share my art experience with the young artists of GBCC and the general public.” Lully is best known for her expressive and color filled views of the natural environment. Schwartz’ imagery reflects her journey through art. Large scale drawings of ‘Eiffel’ in Paris, paintings depicting woodland Maine and the transformed Central Park West in New York contribute to her ongoing narrative of a sense of place. Schwartz creates her works using charcoal and oil paint with ease.
Born in Beverly, Massachusetts Lully moved to New Hampshire in her early teens. The combined experience of having grown up in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and on her farm in Maine personalizes the importance of land in her work. Lully graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 1983 and launched her art career from her then studio in Boston’s North End. Lully’s art is exhibited and collected nationally. Her exhibitions include numerous solo art shows and group museum and corporate exhibitions. Today, Lully works from her studio in northeast Mass. Her work is represented through the National Association of Women Artists, Inc. NYC and Lully serves as Vice President of the MA Chapter.
The gallery is located in the atrium entrance of Great Bay Community College and is open during regular college operating hours. Please sign the guest book when you come and visit.
