MILFORD, PA — The ARTery Gallery's September exhibit "Treasures from Afar” features art inspired by distant travels. Artist Bill Rabsey’s two-and-three-dimensional pieces include artifacts collected along the North American Atlantic coastline from Florida to Nova Scotia. Similarly, the representational oil paintings of Barbara Alice Moir celebrate scenes from her travels in Italy, Amsterdam, and Scotland as well as New York City.
Anyone who converses with Bill Rabsey soon learns he has an interesting story to go with each piece he’s created. As a child, Rabsey spent hours watching his grandfather, a retired commercial artist, paint seascapes and landscapes including the iconic lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia; the waterfront in the Bronx, New York; and Long Island Sound. Today Rabsey cleverly creates his own coastal treasures from rusted and weathered objects that curiously evoke a sense of the forgotten past.
Barbara Alice Moir created her first oil painting as part of a high school history assignment at nearby Eldred Central School, across the Delaware River in Sullivan County, NY. She has been painting ever since. Moir is best known for colorful landscapes of the northeastern United States and Europe using classical brush and knife techniques. In 2011, she was selected for an American landscape show in Amsterdam, Netherlands. She is an artist member of the Salmagundi Art Club in Manhattan, NYC; the Lyme Art Association, Old Lyme, Connecticut; and Oil Painters of America.
The ARTery Gallery, located in the historic Forest Hall, is a cooperatively owned and operated fine art gallery, serving regional artists and art lovers since 1996. The gallery features a wide array of artistic talent ranging from traditional and modern oil, watercolor, and photography to sculpture, jewelry, textiles, pottery, and collage.
