Ashfield, MA painter Gayle Kabaker is inspired by warm summer days, beaches and bodies of water for this, her newest collection of work on exhibit at Salmon Falls Gallery. From an interview in the New Yorker magazine with Kabaker about Jump! her cover illustration for May 28, 2018:

“I love the lush green, rolling hills, the flowers, the lakes and the ponds [of the Berkshires]… I grew up in Hong Kong, where we spent our weekends either at the beach or out on our boat. Maybe that’s why I’m happiest near water and in eighty-degree temperatures. It just feels like my soul home…”

The unifying theme of this series is Water and Red Dresses. Think red reflections in blue, light-filled water. Take the time to see things from Kabaker’s point of view. Her paintings make for a joyful experience, where the viewer is made sensitive to the atmosphere of the subject, one vignette at a time.

Kabaker is a freelance illustrator whose work has been used for everything from fashion and general illustration, to animation, web design, logo and brand development. Exhibit is from July 6 – August 26, reception for the exhibit is Saturday, July 21, 3-5pm, with music by Chris Eriquezzo.
