Three Views

Three Views 2018


The Gateway gallery is proud to present Three Views.

This exhibition features the work of three artists who process life and the world around them through their artwork. Their individual perspectives result in visual expressions that are diverse and yet not completely unrelated. All three artists are experiencing a prolific period of art making. They are dedicated to their explorations through the medium of paint.

A new world opened for Pat Peter when she discovered painting as an adult. Her work is figurative, symbolic, and somewhat surreal. Her paintings act as exploration and discovery simultaneously, and give her insight into relationships.

Kathleen Wells explores and expounds upon the relationship of the individual and elements of space, which is simultaneously a metaphor for experiencing living. Her work is figurative, but abstracted, and acts as a bridge to understanding.

Paul Stevenson’s work is abstract and somewhat non objective. He utilizes elements of the physical world to move paint around on canvas. His work is additive and subtractive, always in motion, and constantly changing.

All three artists have a special relationship to color, each one realizing their visual parameters in their own unique way.

    “This body of work depicts interior spaces with empty chairs or inanimate objects which represent people and personalities.”

    “This exhibition is an important body of work for me.  From transitions to transformations, it’s about liminal spaces through cycles of life and understanding.”

The opening reception for Three Views was held on Thursday, May 10th, 2018 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM.   The reception was well attended by artists and their friends and family members, and Brookline community members. “It was an intimate artists’ reception that really highlighted the work,” said Development Specialist Christine Nolan.

Each of the three featured artists had the opportunity to discuss their work with reception guests, much of which was more recent. “It’s very different showing such new work. The old work I was familiar with it, comfortable. This new work I’m still figuring out,” said Kathleen Wells, “These new pieces are about transitions. It’s like the homeless and the Harvard kids, when they meet up and play chess. Those spaces in between where things can happen.” Wells expanded upon this discussion in a blog post published on the Gateway Arts website. It can be found here.
