Rockaway Watercolorist Makes A Splash
Noted Rockaway artist Arlene Cornell has had her recent watercolor work “Before The Storm” accepted for the 117th annual juried art exhibition of the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club. The group is the oldest women’s art club in the United States.
The painting depicts a view down West 18th Road in Broad Channel as a storm approaches.
“To be accepted for this show is a distinct honor,” Cornell noted.
“Painting with watercolors enables me to express the feelings I have for the subjects I paint. It’s a most versatile medium …
My paintings are an attempt to crystallize a moment in time and perhaps remind us of those special moments in our lives.”
The exhibition will be held at the National Arts Club, located at 15 Gramercy Park South in Manhattan, during the month of October.
Entries are submitted from artists not only in the U.S. but all over the world.
Cornell will also be exhibiting her newest watercolors at the Gramercy Park Art Show, East End Avenue and East 86th Street, in the first week of October.
A longtime member of the Rockaway Artists Alliance, her work is also on view at the RAA’s Salon Show running through August 11th at the RAA’s T-7 Gallery at Fort Tilden.
