Louisa Gould Gallery:  Martha's Vineyard

 

 

Katama   oil on canvas    24" x 36" x 1.5"

 

 

Louisa Gould Gallery, located in Vineyard Haven on the island of Martha's Vineyard, will feature two new works from the artist

for summer, including Tracings II, above.  The gallery is now in its Fall Into the Holidays show, with ongoing events

throughout the season.

 

An invitation 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." 

 

Representation kicked off with a show, Spring to Summer, which opened Memorial Day Weekend, featuring new work of Martha's

Vineyard along with several other gallery artists. New work will continue to head to the Island as new works are created. 

 

"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.

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."

"Left with quotes and thoughts floating around in this brain:

"Yes… you should consider expanding on the talk you just gave...do a book full of your paintings and essays on your thoughts / feelings regarding the environment and include the quotes.

It's pretty powerful " stuff"!   SO meaningful...both timeless and TIMELY...
Education and a talk like the one you just did, matters...it CAN change thinking...one person at a time...saving one starfish at a time.
Paint more! Write more! Give more talks!"          – MR, Brewster, MA 

"Rick! I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation today, especially since it encompassed several of my personal favorites, art, nature, and quotes.
I'm looking forward to exploring the places you described and have painted on the Lower Cape. Thank you!”     –  EC, Sandwich, MA

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!
