MARION – Painters Robert Abele and Mary Moquin will be exhibiting their work at the Marion Art Center, kicking off with an opening reception on Friday, May 24 from 5 to 7 p.m.

The exhibit will run until June 28 and will encompass the annual Art in Bloom festival at the Marion Art Center, which sees the public selecting a painting and creating a flower arrangement that evokes it.

Art in Bloom is scheduled for Thursday, June 13 through Saturday, June 15.

Robert Abele is an American artist living and working in the South Coast of Massachusetts. His work captures the essence and beauty of architecture, particularly found in early New England
homes. His works in oil also depict the coastal landscape of New England.

Mary Moquin is a professional artist and teacher. She lives on Cape Cod and spends part of the year in a remote dune cottage in Barnstable.

The inspiration for her paintings comes from observing time passing as the light and shadows fall across the structures there. The structures have transformed into metaphors for meditation.

Her work has won numerous awards and has been included in several regional and national juried shows.

Mary holds a BFA in printmaking and an MFA in painting from UMass Dartmouth.

Her work is represented in Wellfleet at the Cove Gallery and on Martha’s Vineyard at North Water Gallery in Edgartown.
