“The Glittering Outdoors” On View at Nassau Club
“THE SKY IS THE LIMIT”: This work is part of “The Glittering Outdoors,” an art show featuring paintings by Helene Mazur, on view June 7 through October 2 at The Nassau Club, 6 Mercer Street.
Artist Helene Mazur seeks to reflect the beauty and the energy of being outside in fresh air. Her work transports the viewer on a journey. Building upon her prior plein air work, Mazur has taken to the studio to create this show producing larger pieces which enable one to immerse themselves in the locale. “The Glittering Outdoors,” a grouping of oil paintings mostly painted on beautifully prepared cradled boards, will be on display June 7 through October 2 at The Nassau Club, 6 Mercer Street. The public is invited to a reception and opening on Sunday, June 12 from 4 to 6 p.m.
According to Mazur, each painting in the exhibit has been designed to take the viewer on an adventure to a place that inspires rejuvenation and serendipity. A delight to one’s senses, the colors, textures, and design have been chosen to stimulate the possibility of discovery. The subjects are inviting destinations both near and far including beach scenes, the mountains, flower gardens, and architecture from interesting vistas.
“Each new painting creates an adrenalin rush as I attempt to combine good design, color harmony, and the magic of the moment,” said Mazur. “Light, texture, weather conditions, and emotions are baked into every piece.”
Over the past few years Mazur has increasingly emerged herself in the world of art (she is also a business coach and strategic planning facilitator), participating in juried shows locally. One of her works recently received the award for a “Realistic Bucks County Landscape” at the prestigious 92nd Juried Art Show at Phillips’ Mill.
Mazur’s works are engaging and colorful, often filled with texture and lyrical brush work. Inspiration comes from travels far and near. While much of her art is created with water-soluble oils on panel, she also likes to experiment with gouache, pastel, charcoal, and mixed media collage. Mazur paints from her observations about the world, often outdoors “en plein air,” or from photographs and sketches created on location.
Her work is available through her website at helenemazurart.com and you can follow her on Instagram.
