GROUP STATEMENT

TITLE: PAPER, PAINT, PASTEL, and PATTERN

Collaborative works by Annette Chaplin, Joy Colangelo, Sheila Delimont, Cheryl Kampe and Marybeth Rinehart

You may have seen the work of any one of these local artists. But for the past two years, they have forged an unusual collaboration. From photographs of local scenes, they each applied their distinct medium. Annette and Joy use batik fabrics to create stunning collages and Sheila Delimont is known for her luminous landscape paintings of the West. Cheryl Kampe paints the Monterey Central Coast combining detail and abstract regions while Marybeth Rinehart creates paper collages that fracture a scene while unifying it at the same time.

Using paper, paint, pastel and patterned fabrics, these artists not only produced a body of collaborative work, but to their surprise, formed profound friendships along the way.
