Gabrielle Ferreira, Mustard Dollops, handwoven textile, 7" x 10".

Dedee Shattuck Gallery is showing "Seeking the Line" from now until July 29. The "Line" refers to the mixed media and textile renderings by the four exhibiting artists who have created rich compositions in the process of studying the power of the line. Gabrielle Ferrerira, a textile artist influenced by her Cape Verdean and Portuguese heritage, creates work with a focus towards weaving and print design. Marjorie Forte is a mixed media artist who uses thread to create images "that connect with the past and make us ponder the future." Mindy Horn is a ceramic artist and paper conservator, guided by ideas of growth and transformation through imperfection. Jane Schiowitz works with paint and paper, and has recently been creating pieces in black and white to examine structure in painting. Each artist has her own interpretation and way of exploring the line and every viewer will find a piece that speaks to how they might "seek the line." Dedee Shattuck Gallery is a contemporary art gallery located at 1 Partners' Lane in Westport, Massachusetts and is open Wednesday⎻Saturday 10:00 a.m.⎻5:00 p.m. and Sunday 12:00 p.m.⎻5:00 p.m. For more information, please visit dedeeshattuckgallery.com/july-exhibition.

There are multiple exhibits at Portland Museum of Art this summer. Presently, "Under Pressure: Art from the 1980s" is on view until August 12, showcasing prints, sculptures, and drawings made during the 1980s. The installation is energetic and diverse, revealing the various ways in which artists explore the decade's rapidly changing circumstances. "Under Pressure" uses art to capture the colorful, exuberant, and socially conscious spirit of the 1980s. Also currently showing at Portland Museum of Art is "Clarence H. White and His World: The Art and Craft of Photography, 1895⎻1925," on view until September 16. The exhibition is the first in over forty years to examine the work of Clarence H.

Bird Brained: New Work by Heidi L. Johnson at Jane Deering Gallery
in Gloucester, Massachusetts through July 31

Jane Deering
Heidi L. Johnson, Can't See the Forest for the Trees, 2018, oil on canvas, 36" x 36".

Jane Deering Gallery is presenting "Bird Brained: New Work by Heidi L. Johnson" from now until July 31. Johnson's work has always utilized abundance and color to create lush, beautiful paintings, but her recent works add the elements of flight and freedom to the mix. Her vibrant paintings emulate Dutch still-life paintings, using birds to represent the dichotomy of freedom and constriction. As she says, "The birds in these paintings are a bit confused. As they look at their reflection in the membrane of a glass dome, they see their brethren frozen from flight forever." The simultaneous freedom and imprisonment of the birds contradicts and compliments Johnson's experience with a world that tries to over-analyze and pigeon hole her work, yet her colorful, frenzied paintings defy categorization. Jane Deering Gallery is located at 19 Pleasant Street in Gloucester, Massachusetts and is open Friday⎻Sunday 1:00 p.m.⎻4:00 p.m. For more information, please visit janedeeringgallery.com.
