The gallery is pleased to present The Art of Geoffrey Bayliss opening November 10th with a reception November 17th from 1-4pm, 19 Pleasant Street, Gloucester MA.  

Bayliss is a versatile, formidable artist with a command of several media.   Early abstract paintings are bold and vibrant. Ink drawings inform through disciplined mark-making. Monotypes reveal both subtlety and force.  Bayliss understands process. No mark is superfluous. He relies on the strength of the essential.

The artist’s latest work — two suites of unique linocut prints — will be on view in the exhibition titled Harvest. Blue Harvest, a series of 13 prints in beautiful color, and the companion series, Red Harvest, achieve a range of complexity emblematic of the reductive technique. Accompanying the new prints is a flock of highly inventive papier-mâché birds, fresh from the studio and ready for new destinations. These delightful objects are the result of explorations in papier-mâché by Bayliss and artist/printmaker Coco Berkman with whom Bayliss continues to study. The artist has generously offered to donate his proceeds from the sale of these works-in-progress to The Open Door/Cape Ann Food Pantry.

Bayliss, a native of Gloucester, holds a BA in architecture from Columbia University. He has studied with artist Celia Eldridge, sculptor John Bozarth, printmaker Coco Berkman, and artist Charlotte Roberts.  His work is held in numerous private collections in the US.  This is the artist’s 3rd solo show with Jane Deering Gallery.

The gallery will be open Satuday and Sunday 1-4pm through December 10, 2018
and by chance or appointment at 917-902-4359 .
