Around the Neighborhood Virtual Tour & Talk 

Cerulean Arts is pleased to present Around the Neighborhood, featuring paintings by Tracy Everly, Elizabeth Heller and James Toogood.  Tracy Everly’s oil paintings of houses are an attempt to capture the remains of an experience that gives her joy before it slips away.  Working from observation, photographs and memory, her expressive treatment is marked by deliberation; every gesture is carefully considered.  Elizabeth Heller finds her streetscape subjects “in between”; where remnants of Philadelphia’s industrial age rub shoulders with new developments. She paints in oil outdoors, on the spot, knowing that as the day and days advance, what she captures will be a compilation of many moments.  James Toogood’s carefully rendered watercolor cityscapes emphasize variations of light, texture and atmosphere.  His mysteriously depopulated images straddle the line between realism and abstraction, enabling viewers to appreciate them at multiple levels.
