Recent Paintings and Monotypes
"Departure" is a solo exhibition of recent paintings by artist Wendy Prellwitz at
The South Street Gallery in Greenport, New York from June 27th - July 28th, 2014.
The artist describes her recent work by saying "I am intrigued by the interplay of water's fluidity with the solidity of built form, and have been exploring the combination of organic and graphic imagery through dock structures and lines. The enveloping sensation of nighttime by the water is also a pull for me, both unnerving and electrifying, heightening one's senses in the inky palette."
Wendy Prellwitz' abstracted landscapes are focused on water imagery and coastal light -inspired by her connection to bays, creeks and rivers. Her monotypes, oil paintings and watercolors are informed by growing up with watery views on the North Fork of Long Island, and painting outdoors along the rocky coasts of Mohegan Island and Ireland. In her work, Wendy intends to evoke the feeling of water through a sense of fluidity and movement.
This year she has a solo show of paintings & prints at the North Fork Table on Long Island, and is included in the East End Art's Gallery "H2O' show in Riverhead. She is also showing at the Dragonfly Gallery on Martha's Vineyard and the South St Gallery in Greenport, NY. Last year, she exhibited prints at The Boston Public Library, in "Re-Think Ink, 25 years at Mix-it Print Shop". During 2011, Wendy exhibited monotypes at the Soprafina Gallery in Boston, McGowan Fine Arts in Concord NH, and at art sites in Riverhead, NY; she also showed watercolors at the Chandler Gallery's Small Works and Maud Morgan faculty shows, in Cambridge.
Museum shows include "Eire / Land" at Boston College's McMullen Museum, and "Morning, Noon, and Night" at The Long Island Museum in Stony Brook, New York.
Wendy was awarded a Fellowship from the Ballinglen Arts Foundation in 1998, and continuing fellowships from 2000 to 2007, to live and paint along Ireland's west coast in County Mayo. She also received a Grant-in-Aid from the St Botolph St Foundation in 2002, which funded a painting trip to Rome.
She attended the Rhode Island School of Design and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
She teaches at the Maud Morgan Visual Arts Center in Cambridge, MA, co-founded her architectural firm
Prellwitz/Chilinski Associates in 1980, and lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts and Peconic, New York.
