April 26, 2018From: Rice Polak Gallery
I'd like to welcome you to the 2018 season at the Rice Polak Gallery in Provincetown. The gallery will re-open on Saturday, April 28th! I can't begin to tell you how excited I am as the gallery is more beautiful than ever.
New work has arrived from all of our incredible artists and I now have the pleasure of introducing you to this year's new artists:
Victor Mirabelli, David Lipson, and Mike Stilkey. Below you'll find a sampling of their work.
Please plan a visit to the gallery the next time you are in Provincetown and, as always, to preview work by any of our artists simply visit our website.
We will be open Saturdays and Sundays from 12-5 until Memorial Day Weekend and then daily throughout the season. Please don't hesitate to email or call the gallery with any questions about any of the art work.
Victor Mirabelli's works reflect an impression, a mood-where detail is characterized by his use of contrasting light against dark. Using a muted palette to represent the purity and simplicity of the land, his artistic endeavors have often been described as haunting and soul baring...a very personal, solitary interpretation of the surrounding landscape. Each work is the result of "chance taking." His fresh approach combined with a technique of layering many pigments and unique brush and scrubbing techniques, create a painterly quality that is his signature mark. learn more
David Lipson assembles one-of-a-kind robot sculptures from random objects. He began assembling robots with vintage repurposed parts, and without welding, which is difficult and very clever. Lipson's robots are in private and corporate collections worldwide, and have been shown in museums, books, magazines, and on television. David studied oil painting at the Art Students League, and the National Academy of Design and Fine Arts in New York City. learn more
Mike Stilkey is an internationally recognized artist who has always been attracted to painting and drawing not only on vintage paper, record covers and book pages, but on the books themselves. He is best known for creating small and large-scale installations that use discarded books as their canvas. Using a mix of ink, colored pencil, paint and lacquer, Stilkey depicts a melancholic and at times a whimsical cast of characters inhabiting ambiguous spaces and narratives of fantasy and fairy tales. learn more
