Alden Gallery presents Robert Glisson, Linda Reedy and Anne Salas—Opening on Friday, June 29, 2018, 7 to 9 pm

Provincetown, MA: The Alden Gallery will present a three-person show of new work by Robert Glisson, Linda Reedy and Anne Salas, opening on Friday, June 29, 2018, from 7 to 9 p.m., at the gallery’s exhibit space at 423 Commercial St. Drinks and refreshments will be served; the gallery is open to the public and free. The show will be on view through July 12.

Robert Glisson lives in Syracuse, New York, and often paints in plein air with majestic Finger Lakes landscapes before him. His inspiration often comes from the romantic landscapes of American realist George Inness. “To have my paintings shown in Provincetown, with its remarkable arts heritage, is a privilege,” Glisson says. “Though most of my paintings start out as plein-air works, I’m less concerned with an exact depiction of a scene than with the emotional response. I will add or subtract shapes, push spatial planes, break down an object into abstraction, and exaggerate color in order to best represent that emotion.”

Linda Reedy’s Outer Cape landscapes and feathery brushwork have a haunting, emotional quality that is both joyful and pensive. Reedy, a former weaver who studied painting at Massachusetts College of Art and at the Fine Arts University of Hanoi, Vietnam, now lives in Fort Worth, Texas, but continues to return to Provincetown periodically to capture images for the Alden Gallery, where she first started showing her work in 2008. “I aim to reveal quiet paintings,” Reedy says, “that reflect a sense of time, place, and above all, tranquility.”

Anne Salas is a Cape-based artist who worked as a glass-blower and studied painting with such Provincetown legends as Selina Trieff and Robert Henry for years before exhibiting on her own at the Alden Gallery. Her floral compositions and pond landscapes, which she paints in her Marstons Mills studio, have grown in complexity and in the depth of her layering (including gold and silver leaf backgrounds) since her first show at the Alden Gallery in 2008. “It is my intention,” Salas says, “to create a connection, which is perhaps instinctive, with a viewer’s own inner energy.”
