The Marion Art Center is hosting an exhibition entitled ‘Impressions’, featuring artists Deb Ehrens and Michael Hubert.
The exhibit will be on display from Friday through Saturday, Nov. 18. Both of the art center's galleries will be filled with artwork by the SouthCoast artists. A reception in their honor will be held at the Marion Art Center from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday.
The reception is free and open to the public. At 7 p.m., the two artists will speak briefly about the creative inspiration and process behind their exhibited work.
Ehrens uses her camera to create contemplative and painterly imagery. She learned the basics of black and white photography as an adjunct to her early career as a journalist. More recently, Ehrens studied with Harold Ross, Dan Burkholder, Alison Shaw, Ron Wilson, Ian Murray and at the Rhode Island School of Design and Maine Media College.
An ongoing mentorship with painter Deborah Quinn-Munson has been instrumental in developing her artistic eye.
Ehrens lives in Dartmouth, and is a juried artist member of the Cape Cod Art Association and exhibiting member of the Providence Center for Photographic Arts. Her work has been exhibited in galleries in Boston, Providence, New Bedford, and Cape Cod and featured in YourDailyPhotograph.com and LAPhotoCurator.com.
Hubert is a visual artist and teacher who, for the past three decades, has maintained a studio and home in South Dartmouth. His art education began at Southeastern Massachusetts University in Dartmouth in 1969. He graduated with a BFA in 1973 and a masters in art education in 1980. For the past 39 years, Michael and his wife Christine have operated their arts-based independent school, the Dartmouth Early Learning Center.
Hubert’s work involves exploring line, color and movement in lyrical abstractions with references to landscape and nature.
