An invitation in 2017 to join the gallery's roster marks a return to the Vineyard after more than twenty years.  The artist first began a career in

journalism on the Island, as a reporter for the Vineyard Gazette beginning in 1984.  He also served as the Vineyard correspondent

to the Cape Cod Times and The Boston Globe, and, later, headed his own advertising and marketing firm there for several years.  

 

"I rarely seek out an artist, but I've always loved Rick's work," says Ms. Gould. "I'd seen his work at a gallery in Newburyport. 

I had a jpeg of one of his paintings on my desktop for years." 

 

"It's a great feeling returning to such an important place to me after so many years, no longer as a writer, but, now, as a painter –

still focused on conservation, open space, and the environment, and projecting that through my work," says the artist.

 

For more information, contact the gallery at 508.693.7373, or visit them online at LouisaGould.com.

 

 

 

"The Louisa Gould Gallery added two new artists this year, each with a distinctive style. Painter Rick Fleury creates seascapes

in a minimalist contemporary style featuring calm seas, filtered light, and a luminosity that truly captures the Island look. Although 

he has been represented by galleries and museums around Cape Cod, Boston, and elsewhere for years, this is the first time

that the member of Boston’s Copley Society of Art has shown on the Vineyard."   A Look at Notable Exhibits and Artists in 2017

Kristin's View  oil on linen    28" x 40" x 1.5"    private commission

 

 

Kristin's View, a private commission for a home in Chatham, Massachusetts.  The painting depicts Chatham's Pleasant Bay,

with barrier beaches separating the bay from the open sea.  The client requested an airy piece, incorporating blues and taupes

of the home's formal living room. In keeping with the formality and clean lines of the space, as well as the brushed nickel fixtures

and accent pieces, the painting was framed in a brushed silver floating frame, narrowly exposing the painted side edges of the piece.

Cape Cod Hospital:  Home Free

Home Free, a 66" x 198" x 1.5" triptych, serves as the lobby centerpiece of the new Emergency Center at Cape Cod Hospital, which opened to

the public in May of 2015. In addition to the triptych, 52 custom prints, spanning seven years of the artist's work, have been produced for the 52

acute care treatment rooms of the new $22 milliion state of the art facility.  The prints are 22" x 30" in a contemporary format of metallic chromium

on acrylic.

 

"This triptych, depicting the waters off Wellfleet in Cape Cod Bay, represents the largest piece ever I've ever created . That, combined

with the 52 prints selected for the treatment rooms, makes this the most comprehensive – and important – permanent collection of my career,"

says the artist.  "But, it is far more than that. It is an opportunity to contribute to the healing environment of this amazing new Emergency Center,

and become a greater part of the community that is Cape Cod. I can only hope that I’ve succeeded in creating some sense of calm, and

in celebrating a sense of place, that was envisioned for this exceptional facility for all on Cape Cod."

Outgoing Tide

 

Outgoing Tide, Oil on Canvas, 32 x 46 x 1.5  Private Commission

Outgoing Tide, the artist's latest commission, depicts the indulating waters of an outgoing tide across the Brewster Flats,

as seen from the collectors' oceanfront property on Cape Cod Bay.  The collectors have enjoyed the beauty of the flats

for many years, and wanted the scene to hang above the hearth in the main living area of their new Brewster retreat.

In its new home.

From the Collectors

My wife and I decided to commission an artist to paint the Brewster flats as seen from our new beach home on Cape Cod Bay.

After seeing Rick Fleury's work and speaking with him about the process, we quickly decided to work with Rick to create this painting

which would serve as the centerpiece for our main living area.

We are absolutely thrilled with the result! Rick did a masterful job of capturing the beauty and spirit of this scene, and the resulting painting is breathtaking.

Not only was the final product exactly what we had hoped for, but the process of working with Rick was fantastic.

He took the time to make several visits to our home, viewing the scene at different times of day and coastal tides.

He also spoke at length with us to find out what kind of mood, color, and composition we were looking for.

He allowed us just enough input while still preserving his ability to apply his own artistic vision.

We can't recommend Rick highly enough to anyone thinking about a commissioned seascape painting!
