      Daniel Breslin

      Don’t Talk Politics or Religion

      Reception: Friday, August 2 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm

      Exhibit  August 2 - 25

      Politics and religion are recurring themes in Daniel Breslin’s work. Found objects, words, religious symbols, and political references all contribute to the artist’s visual vocabulary. Most pieces are intended to question our expected norms – or in the case of the current political climate, the lack of norms. Each piece starts as a concept that is worked out through drawings before building the final piece. Encaustic is the primary media used in most of this work with wood substrates created specifically for each piece.

      Artists Talk with Daniel Breslin

      Saturday August 10, 2019

      1-3 PM

      Follow Daniel Breslin through his creative process and inspiration. Daniel will provide an informative overview into the history and use of encaustic medium in his works, its origins, history, and place in his creative decisions. Followed by an in-depth look  at Breslin’s working process with found objects, methodologies, and inspirations. This gallery talk will provide insights and views into the political and religious creations that make up the exhibition. 


      Artist Statement 

      For me, art has always been a religion. So it is no surprise that religious themes and images are common in my work. Encaustic has become my primary medium for several reasons. Texture. Speed. Luminosity. Workability. The ability to melt and rework the paint, even after it has set.

      Most of my recent work begins with found objects, scavenged or found at flea markets. There are times these objects present an immediate direction, but more often the spark is small and I need to live with the objects, finding relationships between objects and establishing color schemes that determine the final direction, determine what the finished work will be. As ideas surface they are sketched small, then sketched to size. Pencil and watercolor are combined to determine composition and color, with construction of the wood foundation coming next. Then I melt the wax.

      What gives an object value and meaning? What makes an object a relic or a talisman? These questions drive my work. The symbols of Western religion are reoccurring themes in my work. Recently I find a social and political emphasis seeping into my art, which is no surprise considering our current social and political climate. Whatever the emphasis or leaning, I use found objects to explore the power of the objects, their spiritual and social meaning – for both myself and the viewer.

      FEATURED ARTISTS!

      Ellen Garvey and Lisa Pelonzi


      Reception: Friday, August 2 from 5:00 to 9:00 pm

      Exhibit  August 2 - 25


      August also includes feature artist presentations by Ellen Garvey and Lisa Pelonzi.


      Ellen Garvey's “What’s down there?” delivers a presentation of underwater photographs from warm waters around the world. As a scuba diver and nature enthusiast Garvey takes the opportunity to escape the cold winter weather and travel to a warm location to scuba dive and photograph “what’s down there”. It’s not just fish! Her favorite type of diving is to see strange and tiny creatures – some – such as a pygmy seahorse - no bigger than. At the other end of the spectrum she has been diving with mantas, turtles, and of course sharks.

      Locations include the Caribbean, several places in the Pacific, the Maldives, and the Galapagos.



      Lisa Pelonzi Presents "The Magical Light of West Beach". For the past four years Lisa has been traveling the beaches of the North Shore and capturing sunrise. One of her favorite places to photograph is the Old Pier at West Beach. She has photographed the pier during sunrise, snowstorms, rain, fog, and with the July 4th fireworks. Join us to see the many moods this beautiful place reveals.

      Where WE Fit in with Salem Arts...

      "Exquisite Connections Exhibit"

      Salem Arts Association has been invited to display in the shipping container pop-up art gallery during the first weekend of the Crossing Water Festival (Sat Sep 8 - Mon Sep 10). 

      We're offering this to ONLY TEN ARTISTS

      The "Exquisite Connections" display is a twist on the Surrealist game of "Exquisite Corpse" where each artist will create portions of ten works inspired by anthropomorphic and humanized forms on 18" x 24" paper provided by Salem Arts. You may use any medium on the supplied base paper.


      Each artist will be asked to create three parts including a top (head/shoulders), Middle (torso/Waist), and bottom (legs/feet). These are not intended to match up as one piece but rather be three independent creations that will be mixed and matched with other artists work. 


      All panels will be priced at $100. A sales commission of 25% will apply.


      Think like a surrealist... wildly outside the box.

      What's your inspiration?

      • maybe inspired by your favorite surrealist?
      • Bird Heads on a peach with a fish tail?
      • Human torso with mechanical arms?
      • Let your imagination go wild!


      Salem Arts will supply each participating artist with 4 sheets of 18x24 Canson XL Mixed Media 96 lb paper. That's to make 3 works as detailed above and one if you need an extra sheet. If you choose to use your own paper base it must be at least 80 lb weight. You may apply any medium you choose including water based paint, oil, charcoal, ink, collage, etc. 


      You will use the sheets horizontally.


      Guidelines: Divide the top and bottom edge about by thirds where the middle artwork sheet will align with the center third above and below to complete the connection.. See the illustration below for an example. 




      Please read the details carefully and contact Gallery@SalemArts.org if interested in participating or have questions. Materials may be picket up at the gallery during regular weekend hours. and are to be delivered August 25 12-3 during exhibition take in. 



      More Opportunity to Show & Sell at Crossing Water...

    Opening Reception - "All of the Arts are Sisters" Exhibit - Friday, August 2, 2019, 5-8pm



    Politics and religion are recurring themes in Daniel Breslin’s work. Found objects, words, religious symbols, and political references all contribute to the artist’s visual vocabulary. Most pieces are intended to question our expected norms – or in the case of the current political climate, the lack of norms. Each piece starts as a concept that is worked out through drawings before building the final piece. Encaustic is the primary media used in most of this work with wood substrates created specifically for each piece.

    Solo Exhibit: "Don’t Talk Politics or Religion" - Daniel Breslin Solo Show

    FREE Underwater Photography Presentation with Ellen Garvey

    Ellen Garvey will give a presentation of underwater photographs and videos from warm waters around the world. As scuba divers and nature enthusiasts, she and her husband take the opportunity to escape the cold winter weather of the north to travel to a warm location to scuba dive and photograph "what's down there". It's not just fish! Their favorite type of diving is strange and tiny creatures - such as a pygmy seahorse - no larger than ¼ inch. With video they can capture the interesting behaviors such as the relationship between a blind shrimp and a goby. The shrimp maintains the home and the goby keeps watch!

    Salon des Refuses

    In 1863 the most prestigious exhibition in Paris, the Paris Salon, rejected art work in the new Impressionist style.  Manet, Courbet, Whistler and Pissaro were among the rejected artists.  In protest they exhibited their work in their own exhibit, the now famous "Salon des Refuses," which brought their beautiful and innovative work to the public - and made them famous.

    In recognition of the fact that a lot of wonderful work doesn't get accepted into art exhibits we are holding our own "Salon Des Refuses."
