Gallery 1 Karen Pomeroy and David Stock, “Two-From the Shore”
Karen Pomeroy and David Stock are” two” both from Seaside Park, New Jersey siblings where they grew up and worked on the boardwalk. Their family owned and operated many Seaside Park attractions from the 1930s-60s.
The idea of creating a show together was born from the idea of” two” being siblings and both being artists and both growing up on the Jersey Shore. David Stock creates acrylics, depictions of times passed on the Jersey Shore and of classic photos and pieces of vintage advertising.
Karen Pomeroy creates watercolors and oils of beach scenes, local areas of the Jersey Shore using various techniques of watercolors and layering of colors to create a rich color of light.
Dave Stock found his new love of painting using acrylic paints in retirement. David has a great love of history. Many of his paintings and items that he paints portray the past. David currently has several carousel horse paintings on display outside the new Seaside Heights Historical Society carousel building in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. David works primarily with acrylics on canvas and canvas artists boards. David continues to create numerous commissions and has painted images of Seaside cottages.
Karen Pomeroy has been a watercolor artist and has been creating watercolors for over 30 years. Karen enjoys creating watercolors by layering the watercolor washes to create depth. Karen never knows what to expect and allows for an element of surprise with her watercolors. Go with the flow is Karen’s watercolor philosophy, unexpected surprises. Watercolors allow for layering of light and shadow and draws the viewer into her work. Karen also has been creating oil paintings which allows for an element of abstract qualities
Gallery 2 Laurelton Arts
The Laurelton Art Society grew out of the interests of a small group of artists dedicated to providing a means for those who share an interest in art–to meet, share ideas, and promote public interest in the visual arts. We welcome an “art appreciator” as well. Now in its 42nd year, the Laurelton Art Society is proud of its growth. We continue to provide quality cultural programs for the public including demonstrations and workshops. Each year we grant scholarships to local high school students pursuing studies in art.
