Scituate’s Front Street Art Gallery will feature the appropriately titled “New Beginnings” next month, a show that welcomes 2021 with new hopes and dreams.
From Thursday, Jan. 7, to Sunday, Jan. 31, the gallery will be filled with sunrises, lighthouses with beacons to guide, solo walks on a winter beach, birds’ nests, and spring flowers – all paintings and photographs showing the resilience of nature and humankind.
The featured artist will be Bart Blumberg, a resident of Boston’s South Shore, who has photographed and exhibited much of the natural beauty and iconic scenes of the area. His coastal landscapes, moonrises, sunrises, and sunsets are well known through exhibitions, social media, and his occasional appearances at arts festivals and shows. Blumberg is also an avid world traveler and enjoys the challenge of capturing local people, culture, architecture, and natural beauty.
A creative artist whose medium is photography, he seeks to take photographs that express his creative vision, just as a fine art painter would do. This technique of “creative visualization” is in the style of many of the masters of photography. Sometimes simply the feelings that are created in the viewer are the story.
Front Street Art Gallery, a juried cooperative gallery of more than 20 local artists and artisans, is located at 124 Front St., Scituate Harbor.
Gallery hours are Thursday through Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.; a private showing can be arranged by appointment.
