‘Shellscapes’ at the Kennedy Gallery

Kennedy Gallery and Custom Framing
41 Market St
Portsmouth, NH 03801

Spring Lake, New Jersey native Erin Rigney’s coastal modern art explores the atmospheric designs in shells and the unsung beauty that washes up upon our shores. Fascinated by the endless variations of patterns and abstractions in nature, Erin’s encaustic Shellscapes Collection focuses on pieces of shells and their visual magic.

Encaustic is a centuries-old process of painting with a mixture of melted beeswax, damar resin, and pigment in a hot liquid state. It is a synthesis of natural materials and elements and seems the perfect pairing for illuminating the art of Mother Nature.

Please join us for an Opening Reception on Friday, May 6th , from 5-8 pm, or stop in during the month of May to enjoy Erin’s work.

The works are on exhibit May 5th -29th, 2022. ENJOY!
