Meet the Artists of PEOPLE AND PLACE

On Friday, March 2, from 5-7pm the Gallery at WREN presents the opening reception of People and Place, featuring paintings by Andy Frost and Rachel Van Wylen. The paintings explore concepts of identity, intimacy, and inspiration through the parallel lenses of abstract portraiture and modern traditional landscape painting. Faces become windows into inner worlds, while sweeping landscapes and intricate architectures reveal poignancies about longing, belonging and what it means to be home. Van Wylen likes to paint on location because it gives her an authentic experience of each place, to smell the air, see the light from the windows flickering on the walls of the rooms, and talk to the people who call that place home. Frost explores the concept of neighbors in his bold and colorful pieces, each one an homage to an artist, friend or family member in a style that embraces the innocence and joy of childhood.

The exhibit is part of the First Friday events in Bethlehem, which include exhibits at 42 Maple Contemporary Art Center.
People and Place is generously sponsored by Leigh Starer Landscape Design.

 

Andy Frost_Gallery Shot 12-10-17Andy Frost describes himself as a “multi-media, multi-disciplined, multi-cultural, visual and word artist.” He studied at Boston College, Plymouth State University, and at the University of Oregon. His work has been featured in galleries and cultural centers, including the Essex Art Center in Lawrence, MA, the Provincetown Center for the Arts and Museum in Provincetown, MA, the Pagus Gallery in Norristown, PA and the Siena Art Institute in Siena, Italy among others. His writing and artwork have been published in The Tequila Review, Boston Arts Journal, The Grub Street Rag and The Drum Magazine. Art, for Frost, articulates otherwise inexpressible emotions, and provides light in a world that often feels quite dark.

 

Photo, Rachel Van WylenRachel Van Wylen’s interest in the idea of places and spaces began when she was a graduate student in New York City, living in a tiny apartment, which eventually led to an interest in exploring the freedom of ‘plein-air’ or ‘outdoor’ painting. Originally from Michigan, Van Wylen studied Art and English at Gordon College, fine art in Orvieto, Italy, and at the New York Academy of Art, where she earned her MFA in 2009. She has won high profile art competitions, and has shown her work throughout the Midwest, Northeast and Italy. She has taught at a number of schools and arts organizations, including Boston Trinity Academy, the Menino Art Center, and Spring Arbor University. She is currently the Art Department Chair at The White Mountain School, in Bethlehem, New Hampshire, where she has been actively connecting her students to the vibrant art community in Bethlehem and throughout the North Country
