Kevin Labadie: SprawlMay 22 - September 27, 2015
Kevin Labadie presents Sprawl, a collection of paintings constructed as a sort of eye level frieze. The continuous paintings are a miniature chronicle of daily encounters stretching across all four gallery walls and around corners. Sprawl is about reaching past the periphery of each passing moment as it touches the edge of the next. There is no end to it and it may begin anew.

For over twenty-five years my main focus has been plein-air painting of the coastal wetlands of United States from Maine to Florida and west to the California coast. This series is about presenting the fragile ribbon of green that hugs both the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts. It is nestled just behind the protection of the barrier islands and within the tidal estuaries. In some places just a pocket marsh remains; in others the ribbon is miles wide. This landscape, the tidal wetlands, is where, the scientist and writer, Rachel Carson described "the drama of life played its first scene on earth and perhaps even its prelude, where the forces of evolution are at work today, as they were since the appearance of what we know as life."
Through aesthetics and education, environmental stewardship of the tidal zone can be fostered. When traveling to a new region, I ask local people where to find accessible places to see and paint the tidal marshes. Inevitably the most amazing places have been shared and as an artist I can confirm that individual's aesthetic choices. Often these are favorite places where people go to think and be restored by the nature around them. I try to capture that experience in my work. My hope is that this series of landscapes will help to inspire others to cherish this delicate and threatened environment.
Ms. McEnerney Cook has been an artist and teacher for over thirty years. Currently she is a resident of Tuckerton, NJ and Bremen, Maine. She was trained as an educator and painter in Philadelphia, PA, earning a M.ED and a MFA. She has taught as an adjunct professor of art at Stockton College, at Friends Select School in Philadelphia for 15 years and Hammonton High School for 12 years. Recently she has been the Painting Instructor for the Art and Science Teacher Workshops sponsored by The University of Virginia at the Anheuser-Busch Coastal Research Center an LTER on the Virginia Eastern Shore.

Harry Hasson: “Harry’s Whimsical World”
Hasson ran his family business, Hasson and Sons Florist, for over fifty years, and the Atlantic City area has enjoyed his avant garde style and artistic talents for decades. His unconventional garden creations have been the highlight of many Ventnor City Garden Tours. Hasson creates abstractions of beauty using wood, stone, antique kitchen gadgets, musical instruments, jet engine parts, and the list goes on. He celebrates life in all of its wonder, and uses plants, floral, and water features in his "Whimsical World." Six of his larger than life sculptures were on exhibit in the Culinary Arts Museum at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island.
