Catherine Meeks, Lisa Molyneux and Jane Manco
Catherine Meeks returns to Larkin Gallery this season with her rich palette and masterful strokes. Meeks explains: Usually I paint the beautiful and ever-changing New England landscape, but my love of travel provides me with an expanding range of possibilities. Meeks’ work also includes an impressive representation of French and Italian land and city scapes.
Lisa Molyneux, a former professional theatrical set designer has been a full time painter for several years, focusing primarily on rich, atmospheric landscapes, often exploring the depths of color and nuances of light in “wet” landscapes: swamps, moors, ponds, rivers, ocean, lakes and other “misty” settings. Molyneux has also become rather famous for her more light-hearted, popularly collected “full-figured” female nude and nude “Bear” paintings.
Jane Manco, an immensely gifted artist whose range runs the gamut from landscapes to Still Life and now, following an intensive study at the Florence Academy of Art US, figural painting. Manco's work is always eagerly anticipated and highly collected.
