John Neville: New Work
John Neville, who began his career as a printmaker, brings the graphic elements and abstract overtones of his etchings to his oil paintings in this show. Neville’s nostalgic portrayals of bygone days chronicle the folklore and daily lives of the local fishermen and their women from Halls Harbour, Nova Scotia, his childhood village. Men grease the skids, haul boats, and in a humorous self-portrait, Tango, the artist portrays himself as a big fish in a tuxedo dancing with a beautiful redhead. Another new painting, Time To Get On Deck heads the viewer directly into the path of the Eggemoggin Reach regatta.
