STONINGTON – â€śJohn Woolsey: Fernaldâ€™s Neck – New Pastelsâ€ť will hang at Isalos Fine Art, Stonington from July 20 through August 8, with an opening receptionfrom 4-7pm on Friday, July 23rd.
The pastels were inspired by Fernaldâ€™s Neck, on Lake Megunticook in Camden. Woolsey focuses on small spaces in the dense woodland, referring to them as â€śinteriorsâ€ť because, like rooms, they are enclosed on all sides by dense woods. In these spaces, Woolsey finds dynamic compositions among the tangled branches, pine needles and boulders. Fernaldâ€™s Neck, a preserve managed by the Coastal Mountains Land Trust, encompasses 328 acres and about four miles of shoreline.
John Woolsey earned his MFA at the University of Pennsylvania in 1973, studying with Neil Welliver and others; his work now hangs in numerous public and corporate collections He divides his time between Philadelphia and Maine.
Isalos Fine Art is located at 26 Main Street, Stonington. For more information call 367-2700 or visit isalosfineart.com.
