January 4, 2017 –January 29, 2017

Some of you will remember Sharon from the Tuesday night class. She was one in a million, charging ahead like a locomotive. Sharon had enthusiasm, desire and motivation – enough for 10 of us. She set her goals and moved forward and now she is showing the results of her hard work. They are amazing!


Artist Statement:

“Art is my passion and I want to share it. I want to convey happiness and make people smile. The realism of my flower blossoms is captured by blending the oil paints into a creamy texture which also makes the flowers appear larger than life. I want the viewer to experience beauty and color within and through my paintings. I want my paintings to take the viewer’s mind to a different level. This exhibition of my art is a dream come true and my way to share the beauty of flowers and nature. I can only hope my paintings provide viewers with visions of delight.” (Bignell)


About the Exhibit:

“Brilliant Blooms” is an exhibit of oil paintings by Newburyport artist Sharon Bignell, is a series of finely executed, larger-than-life portraits of single flower blossoms. Bignell’s lovely collection celebrates the wildness and delicacy of roses, poppies, peonies and hibiscus in full bloom.

I hope you all get to go to the Firehouse and see Sharon’s beautiful flowers painted in oils. Great job Sharron! Congratulations for making it happen!
