During the month of March, ArtSource will host an exhibition for four of our artists who are most inspired by experiences and self-exploration: Debbie Martin, Carolyn Goldsmith, Angela Nesbit, and Jeanne Bessette. These artists share a passion for expressing their inner feelings in their own creative means.
Debbie Martin, a primarily self-taught artist, approaches her artwork by reflecting on her personal experiences. The title of each piece often suggests the foundation of the composition and the emotion is created by the color palette. The work of Carolyn Goldsmith hopes her figurative work will leave the viewer with some sort of story or recollection on their mind - some may express joy and some, sadness. Her pieces are visible expressions of her inner feelings. Angela Nesbit has a goal of creating an emotionally uplifting message in her artwork that might change the viewer’s mood for a moment. Nesbit creates paintings that unleash the happiness within. Jeanne Bessette, an internationally known artist, is mostly interested in the essence of life rather than creating paintings that replicate what she sees. Her approach is spontaneous, as everything she puts onto the canvas is a response to the previous mark. More times than not, her paintings have a message, but if the viewer walks away with more questions than answers, that’s O.K. too.
