Elysian Fields - Rosemary Pipitone
"The landscape is disappearing. Gone are the sweeping panoramas... It has become quite the challenge to find an unspoiled landscape amidst this visual rubble." With these words from her personal artist statement, Rosemary Pipitone finds her purpose as an artist: to restore to its former glory the dignity of American geography.
Ms. Pipitone's medium is the unique 'handpainted photograph;' her work is both evocative and transformative in nature, expanding upon the stoic qualities of black-and-white photography through the application of colored oil paints.
Renowned across the United States for her singular artistry, Ms. Pipitone has garnered the attention of the leading producer of transparent photo paints, Marshall's Oils, who have both established a sponsorship of Ms. Pipitone and named her as one of their Master Artists. Her artwork is on display in private collections in various regions throughout the U.S. and is equally at home in both private and corporate spaces.
Low Tides (displayed on the lower level of the Hillman Center) is a collection of seascapes and coastal hideaways, and Bucolic Daze (upper level) offers collections of farmscapes and woodlands. Sunday Morning - Rosemary Pipitone
Both collections were created from the Canadian Maritimes and Eastern United States.
Stop by the Hillman Center and engage yourself in the collections of moving artistry by Rosemary Pipitone -- on display throughout summer 2013!

In an age when everything seems to have been done, does our need to go beyond the ordinary lose value? The debut of The Armory Show in 1913 helped position New York as the center of the art world. It introduced modern art to American masses, and pushed artists to take their work further. Today even though 65,000 people attend the Armory Show it is just one stop in the global art fair circuit, and the growing number of museums, galleries, and art-spaces in New York City.
