Carole Loiacono: Solo Show, "Reflections of Cape Ann"

'Serene Moment' by Carole Loiacono
The North Shore Arts Association announces the solo show "Reflections of Cape Ann" by award winning Cape Ann Artist, Carole Loiacono, which opens Thursday, July 2nd through Saturday, July 25th,  with the Artist's Reception to be held on Sunday, July 12th, 2 – 4pm. This event is free and open to the public.
Carole Loiacono declares, "I'm always in love with Cape Ann!" She is an award winning plein air painter who has fulfilled her dream of living, teaching and painting on Cape Ann for the last 30 years, also following the sun to paint in Tarpon Springs, Florida in the winter months.
Carole works in watercolor, acrylic, pastel, pencil, pen & ink, and oils, and can often be seen painting on site throughout Cape Ann and Tarpon Springs. She likes to absorb the feeling of the moment. "Sometimes," she says, "it takes me in a weird direction which leads me to start with a color I don't normally use, and let the painting evolve from there." Often described as a Romantic Impressionist, she likes to exaggerate the moment, the feelings, the experience of the day, pushing the envelope through color and texture. "I'm trying to be a conduit through the painting to convey to the viewer the essence of the moment by experiencing the energy of the scene. If I am able to express some of the feelings of excitement and joy that I experience while painting the beauty of Cape Ann, then I feel I have created a memorable piece of artwork."
Loiacono earned a B.S. in Art Education from Pratt Institute and has taught art classes in the New York and Long Island school districts. In addition to numerous art show awards she was commissioned to create a twenty panel acrylic series and a fifteen panel acrylic series for the Rockland Psychiatric Center in Orangeburg, New York.
