|SEPTEMBER ART EXHIBIT|
Paintings by Rebecca Gmucs
September 1 - 27, 2017
Rebecca Gmucs attended Sarah Lawrence College and studied printmaking with Ansel Uchima. She designed and printed posters for the Sarah Lawrence Gallery which often disappeared before openings. Rebecca continued silk screening and studied textile at FIT. While working as a free-lance designer, she studied painting and drawing at the Art Student's League in NYC and printmaking at Pratt Institute. Rebecca was a member of Brooklyn Waterfront Artist's Coalition (BWAC).
After moving to Rockland County, Rebecca became a Master Gardener and started studying with Eleanor Miller at Rockland Center for the Arts in 2000.
She completed a Certificate in Landscape Design from NY Botanical Garden in 2003. She has her own landscape design business, Moosecapes. Landscape work is outdoor sculpting with living things. The landscape involves color and form, contrast, composition and texture just as a fine art piece.
Rebecca paints full time in the winter and when she can during the growing season.
Space and color are what move me. I have always been interested in expressing the immensity of the space that can surround us, the view from the ridge or to the ridge - the ocean out as far as you can see, the enormity of the sky. The peacefulness and strength contained in large expanses. Color is music for the mind and eyes, endless subtle variations, the selection of just the right shade and quality for the place and season. The physical characteristics of artist's mediums also blow me away - the texture of oil paint, the stark flatness of silkscreen, the feel of a litho stone - heaven.
