Please Join us for Pat & Tracee’s Show
The week has finally arrived! This Friday, May 24th is the much-anticipated reception for Tracee Gentry-Matthews’ and Pat Matthews’ joint show: “Dynamic Color: The Freedom of Expression.” From 5:00-7:00PM, you are invited to enjoy music, hors d’oeuvres and exceptional art at our gallery. Tracee and Pat each have a resonant and unique art form. Pat, an American Impressionist has stirring landscapes, still-lifes and more recently, energetic abstracts. His body of work is ever growing. Tracee’s subject matter primarily consists of pulsating skylines and her cityscapes are vibrant snapshots into the undulating and rhythmic life and energy of a city. We are bubbling with excitement to have Tracee and Pat grace our gallery with not only their art, but also their dual presence this Friday evening.
Tracee’s Vibrant Cityscapes
Tracee considers painting to be a way of life and has been creating in some form since childhood. She became a full-time artist after a Bachelor of Science Degree and the birth of her daughter in 2000. She says, “Painting to me is a passion for life. It is deep rooted within my soul and it has been there since childhood. I love bringing a painting to life with a world full of touch, taste, smell, sight, sound and emotion by simply applying the brush to the canvas. A city skyline to me is full of all of these things.” The color and grandeur Tracee achieves in her dynamic works are an enlightening sight – and we must say, seeing them in person is that much more enthralling.
Pat’s Progressive Body of Work
Pat became a full-time artist after his first career as an architect. Art was always his passion, but was more of a dream than a reality until he took the leap. Inspired by the outdoors, much of Pat’s repertoire reflects the beauty and rich color he finds in nature. From aspen scenes to lily ponds, Pat’s paintings take the viewer to a fresh setting. Pat also has a large patriotic body of work. He recently painted a flag titled, “The Endless Strength of America” – the proceeds of which will go to The One Fund in Boston to benefit the victims and families of the Boston Marathon tragedy. In fact, this moving piece will be auctioned off of our gallery floor this Friday at the Dynamic Color opening. Pat’s repertoire recently expanded to abstracts and he manages to achieve the same degree of emotion in the vibrant ribbons of color in this more recent art form.
We look forward to seeing you at the opening this Friday!
