Rocky Neck Gallery’s Summer Artists Series: Family Trees
Mixed media assemblages by Stephen Thomas Martin
Wednesday, September 25 – Sunday, October 13, 2013
Artist’s reception on Friday, September 27, 6-8 PM
Rocky Neck Gallery is pleased to announce the next Summer Artists Series show: Family Trees, featuring the mixed media assemblages of Stephen Thomas Martin. This is the last exhibit in this series for the gallery’s 2013 season. And the first time Rocky Neck Gallery is exhibiting the fascinating and mysterious assemblages by Martin of Amesbury, MA. This new show opens Wednesday, September 25 and runs until Sunday, October 13, 2013.
Martin’s art is both literally and figuratively about reclamation. While the literal incorporates found objects to form the “ground” of the pieces, of more importance, is the figurative element. The search for unique “found objects” he uses in his pieces is a big part of his creative process. In many of his works he incorporates old photos of individuals he discovers at antique shops and flea markets.
As Martin states, “Using these photographs I am giving new life to people long forgotten by family, friends and society. They have not only been reclaimed but are indeed reclaiming a place in the existing world, not to be forgotten again.”
Martin is a self-taught artist now working full time to meet the demand for his assemblages. Prior to this new career, he owned and operated an antique and retail furniture business for twenty years in Newburyport, MA. Martin is the founder and owner of Gallery 206, a pop-up experimental gallery in Amesbury, MA. He is also represented by Galatea Gallery in Boston, MA and is a juried member of the Cambridge Art Association, of Cambridge, MA and Newburyport Art Association in Newburyport, MA. His award winning work is juried into many prestigious shows along with residing in several private art collections throughout the USA. The corporate collections that currently own his assemblages are Growth Coach Management Consultants, Kodiac Venture Partners, and the Italian movie production company, Blue Suede Shoots.
Please join us on Friday, September 27, from 6-8 PM for an artist’s reception. Meet Stephen Thomas Martin and learn about his process reclaiming and reinventing new lives for discarded objects.
