Seascape Exhibition | Gardner Colby Gallery, FL

March 4 – March 16, 2015

“Water Works”

A group show with a coastal theme.

Featuring the work of Claire Kendrick, Doug Foltz, James Lewis and Ken Otsuka

“Living on the east coast of the United States I look out on the Atlantic Ocean and I’m challenged as an artist to capture its vastness. The high seas and big storm fronts remind me of my native home, Ireland, the North West Outpost of Europe. Those memories combined with the ferociousness of the weather fronts brings a depth and passion to my work, yet the stillness and peace of the southern shores is a soothing calm and is both a joy and quest to capture as a plein air and studio painter.”

“Symbolically the ocean is a sign of power and strength, due to its immensity. Observing and painting the great power of the ocean and all its weather fronts is much like having a front row seat at the theater.”

Claire Kendrick has had the privilege to be mentored by American Contemporary Artist Anne Packard.

Artist Notes

“In 2012 Anne invited me to paint with her for 10 days at her home in Cape Cod. It is a huge honor for any artist when your painting speaks or evokes a reaction…. it’s a confirmation and validation that something’s there———–a spark to ignite! Painting is a lifelong quest and at over 80 years of age Anne is passionate and dedicated. I was struck and impressed that her daily quest is to improve her craft as an artist.
Painting can be one of the most heartbreaking and rewarding professions. Anne taught me that “the struggle” is a natural part of the process for a painter. She also taught me about stamina, discipline and fearlessness……the importance of bringing emotion, depth and passion into your work……….and that every brush mark helps define your creative style and helps you find you voice as an artist. There is a mood and emotion Anne Packard conveys in her painting that speaks to me and inspires me.” – CJK

A Selection of Paintings Exhibiting

A selection of new work will be available at the upcoming exhibition. Come visit me at the Gardner Colby Galleries, Naples March 4th, 2015.

Artist Video Profile | Filmed in Ireland Jan 2015

Claire Jane Kendrick | Video Profile
Filmed in Ireland Jan 2015

I am so inspired when returning to my homeland, this short video was filmed in January 2015 when I was visiting friends and family in Co. Donegal, Ireland. It is a stunning area with a rugged coast lots of sandy coves and a maritime climate. This video gives you an insight!

As an artist it’s a joy to watch the weather fronts roll in and the light break through the clouds. It’s so dramatic!! The open vistas remind me of looking out over the expansive marsh lands in my new home north Florida – however the temperatures are very different!

Ireland has a rich heritage of poets, painters, musicians and the land and stunning scenery make you stop in your tracks and admire “God’s country”! Of course the locals use that expression because it’s an area supposed to be favored, especially an isolated beautiful rural land like my native region. Maybe it’s the isolation, that lets the creativity happen. That’s true for me. I have to allow myself time in the studio without interruption.

Living across the pond on the east coast of the United States I look out on the Atlantic Ocean and I’m challenged as an artist to capture its vastness. The high seas and big storm fronts remind me of my native home, Ireland, the North West Outpost of Europe. Those memories combined with the ferociousness of the weather fronts brings a depth and passion to my work, yet the stillness and peace of the southern shores is a soothing calm and is both a joy and quest to capture as a plein air and studio painter.

As a plein air painter there is an urgency and need to capture the essence of your vista – it’s sparked by emotion and energy. Then the atmosphere and weather of the outdoors adds to the paintings aliveness. All this –- the vigor of life is to be conveyed onto a canvas. It is a love, and a challenge.

“The vistas of possibility are only limited by the shortness of life.” -Winston Churchill

American Art Collector Magazine – the Art Market.

Nancy Winch featured in American Art Collector – Calling From Coast to Coast section — with her thoughts on current trends in the art market. It’s a delight my work gets a mention –

“The art market continues to be strong in Naples. In Southwest Florida, there is a definitive trend toward large scale transitional pieces and slightly abstracted works. Transitional pieces by Claire Kendrick and John Schuyler are in demand, as are perennial gallery favorites Kevin Sloan and Frank Corso.” – Nancy Winch
