The works of four distinctly different artists are the focal point of Fine Line Design Gallery’s final exhibit of the 2011 season, which will run from August 11 through September 8. The exhibit will feature oil painter Jeff Hargreaves, glass artist Steven Main, oil painter Gail Macejkovic, and pastel artist Alberta Marana. The reception for Exhibit IV will take place August 11 from 4 – 7 pm; the artists will be on hand to discuss their work.
Hargreaves appreciated fine art – but it wasn’t until he began taking classes at the Kewaunee Academy of Fine Art that his appreciation turned into a passion. Representational painting is how he prefers to connect to his viewers.
Main’s first contact with glassblowing was at Kent State University in the mid-seventies. Although a specific reference to nature is often intended, he enjoys when viewers form their own interpretations of his work.
As an oil painter, it is Macejkovic’s desire to capture spaces and places that draw people in – and for her, many of those places reside in the serenity of the Wisconsin landscape.
Although she focused on oils and sculpture early in her career, Marana has been painting with pastels for the past 20 years. She says her work is a reflection of her relationship with nature.
