July 1 - July 30
Corinne Commoss-Abercrombie, a palette knife artist, will be displaying her work in the Virginia A. Carten Gallery at Abbot Public Library from Monday, July 1st through Tuesday, July 30th. A Public Reception will take place on Friday, July 5th from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm.
The exhibit’s title is “Marblehead and Beyond: An Artist’s Reflections” and will include palette knife paintings in oil, mostly landscapes and seascapes of local Marblehead and the surrounding areas, as well as a few other subjects.
Corinne Commoss-Abercrombie began painting early in life, but started studying art more seriously after completing her graduate degree in Counseling. During her career life, she fit art in whenever possible. Her last years of employment in education were as an art teacher in elementary and middle school. “I love children’s art,” Corinne says, as well as enjoying many artists/illustrators of children’s books.
In the past two years, Corinne has painted in the Strada Easel Challenges, painting a new painting every day, mostly outdoors, and has found these exercises helped her development as a painter.
