“All Summer” - A Solo Show of Paintings by Patricia Feiler at Flowers at the Greenery in Westhampton Beach
July 9 – 22, 2013
Opening Reception Saturday, July 13, from 4 to 6 p.m.
Open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“All Summer” - A Solo Exhibition by Patricia Feiler presents over twenty luminous paintings that reflect the changing faces of summer on the East End.
"As the summer unfolds, the light and atmosphere here slowly begin to change from the fresh, light greens of May and June to the rich golden leaves and heavy vines of late summer,” said Feiler. “I’m inspired to capture the feeling of the changing light on familiar scenes, evoking memories of long summer days on the East End.”
Many of the views capture on canvas may be familiar to those living and visiting the South and North Forks of the East End. Beaches, sailboat races, billowing skies and lush vineyards are some of the places that Feiler has captured in her paintings.
Feiler is a musician and likens painting to creating music.
"Painting a landscape feels like music to me,” said Feiler. “First there is observing and studying a scene, almost as if it were a musical score. I block in the shapes and the painting begins to appear. There’s a familiar rhythm in the motion of the brush across the canvas. The process has an energy and a crescendo.” she said.
“The melodies in Impressionist music sometimes disappear in shimmering harmonies and I notice that in my paintings. The colors and shapes begin to soften and I have to stand back to see the form. I only really see my paintings from a distance, yet I hear them with every brush stroke.”
The paintings on view at Flowers at The Greenery take visitors on a sojourn across the East End:
An early morning mist steals across lush green Rosa Rugosa on the dunes of Tiana Beach.
Early evening shadows fall across the sandy beach on the Peconic Bay.
Sails billow in the sun during the Wednesday Night Races.
On the 4th of July, vintage sailboats from the early 1900’s race to the finish at the Westhampton Yacht Squadron.
The late August light falls on vineyard rows at Sparkling Pointe Southold and the colors turn right before your eyes.
On the day after Labor Day, Cupsogue Beach is nearly empty. A ribbon of tidal pools sparkles on the shore. It’s still summer.
Feiler’s paintings have been the subject of numerous solo shows. Among them are Sparkling Pointe Vineyard, Cecily's Love Lane Gallery and Love Lane Kitchen, Mattituck-Laurel Library, The Art Gallery at the Quogue Library, and the Rosalie Dimon Gallery at Jamesport Manor Inn. Her work has been selected for numerous juried shows and is included in many private collections.
This is Patricia Feiler’s second solo show at Flowers at the Greenery.
"Flowers at the Greenery is such a beautiful place to have my paintings shown,” said Feiler. “Fresh art among fresh flowers!"
