North Shore Arts Association concludes its 2011 Season ‘Featured Artists’ Exhibits with shows by Dianne Panarelli Miller and Cathy Landergan.
From Monday, October 3 through Sunday, October 23, portrait and landscape artist Dianne Panarelli Miller’s works will be on display in the Gordon Grant Room. Miller has received many awards locally and nationally in the thirty years she has been painting and is represented in many fine galleries, as well as in hundreds of private collections. She is a signature member of the New England Plein Air Painters and has the distinguished honor of having been named ‘Copley Master’ at the Copley Society in Boston. She is also a member of the Portrait Society of America and Oil Painters of America. A full-time painter, Miller is comfortable doing portraits and landscapes as well as murals and cityscapes. In an effort to produce work unlike anyone else, she paints in her ‘own voice’ from life and not photographs. To see more of her work, visit www.diannepmiller.com.
Also, from October 3 – 23, Marblehead, MA artist and former draftsman Catherine Landergan will have a ‘Small Works’ show in the hallway of the first floor gallery. Ms. Landergan was born in Brussels, Belgium, growing up in a thriving art culture. As a traditional draftsman, her commissions include everything from the casting drawings for the park benches on Revere Beach, a map of every street in Warwick, RI and landscape drawings for Spectacle Island created from the dirt from the Central Artery in Boston. Ms. Landergan learned to paint through traditional apprenticeships with renowned oil painters Stapleton Kearns, David Curtis and Tom Ouellette. Her paintings are exhibited throughout New England and are in public and private collections from Europe to California. Her works may also be seen at the Hawthorne Hotel in Salem, MA. The Cathy Landergan Gallery is located at 273 Pleasant St. in Marblehead. For more information visit her website at www.landergan.com.
