The Gallery on Main in Falmouth is happy to feature the work of Anne Costello in the gallery from November 1 through November 23.
During this time of sensitivity to the coronavirus pandemic, the gallery has moved its featured shows from the back room to the front of the gallery, which is more open and spacious to accommodate social distancing.
The public is encouraged to stop in and view Ms. Costello’s paintings. There is no opening reception planned at this time.
With a bright color range and illustrative signature style, Ms. Costello’s work has instant appeal. Her subjects define the essence of Cape Cod and the attraction many people have to classic subjects such as dunes, Adirondack chairs, sailboats and marshes.
Ms. Costello is a graduate of Regis College, where she received a bachelor of arts degree in fine arts. Her preferred mediums are oil and acrylic, although she has done numerous pieces using pastels.
She is a member of the Andover Artists Guild, Chelmsford Art Association, Rockport Art Association and Newburyport Art Association.
Ms. Costello’s work can be found at Picture Yourself Gallery in Chelmsford where she was the featured artist during the spring and summer of 2019. She has participated in the Sandwich Artisan group’s summer art shows and the annual Cataumet Artisans Fair as well as at the “Deck the Docks” Maritime Show in Gloucester.
Her painting “Newport Bridge” was used as the cover painting for the US State Department’s English Teaching Forum publication used in more than 100 countries. Recently she was one of the featured artists at Falmouth Community TV’s online show.
Ms. Costello is studying with David P. Curtis. She has also studied in the past with Tom Dunlay and Steve Greco, all of whom have played an instrumental role in her development as an artist. In addition to being the featured artists this month, Ms. Costello is one of 15 permanent artists whose work can be seen at the gallery. The Gallery on Main, located at 317 Main Street in Falmouth, is open daily and by appointment.
The Gallery on Main is celebrating its third year in business. The galley seeks to present exhibits that are as varied and expressive as the many artists who live on the Cape.
