Susan Tremaine & Marjorie Wolfe at Gallery 195
December 8, 2010 to March 11, 2011
The Arts Council of Greater New Haven presents an exhibition of works by Connecticut artists Susan Tremaine and Marjorie Gillette Wolfe at Gallery 195 at NewAlliance Bank, 195 Church St., 4th floor, New Haven. The exhibition will be on display during bank hours from December 8, 2010 through March 11, 2011. An artists’ reception is scheduled for Tuesday, January 11, from 5 to 7pm. The public is invited to attend.
The exhibit will feature paintings by Susan Tremaine and photographs by Marjorie Gillette Wolfe. The artists share similar sensibilities and views on subjects that are often abstractions of nature, making for a soothing and captivating juxtaposition.
Susan Tremaine’s work has been featured across Connecticut and in her native Canada, and she has placed many of her works in private collections. Her educational background is in both art and interior design, giving her a unique perspective on the interplay of color, texture and design. She developed an affinity for contemporary art while curating art programs for various large corporations during her work in the field of interior architecture. Tremaine later moved to Connecticut, where she ran an interiors business and worked in lighting design with her husband. She now focuses primarily on her work as an independent artist. She currently works at two painting studios, in the Mushoka lake district of Ontario, Canada, and in Norwalk, CT in the Wilson Avenue Loft artists building.
Marjorie Gillette Wolfe has exhibited her photography and participated in juried exhibits widely across Connecticut at galleries including the Kehler Liddell Gallery in New Haven, The Bushnell in Hartford, The Atlantic Gallery in Hamden, as well as in galleries in Vermont, Rhode Island and New York City. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Rhode Island School of Design and her Masters of Arts in Liberal Studies from Wesleyan University. She discusses her work: “My primary subject, landscape, needs to have both an emotive power and an inherent architecture so that I can separate, but not remove, the geometry of a place from its allure. I am especially attracted to minimal landscapes that confound perspective and allow for a contemporary view of what can be a well-worn subject.”
