Works by Craig Coggeshall, Hollis Engley, & Michael Pietragalla
July 3 - August 15, 2020
Vessels throughout history have served as both delightful objects of art and functional containers. This exhibit features a trio of Southcoast artists, working in a variety of materials and dimensions, who interpret the theme of vessels in three unique ways. Craig Coggeshall’s still-life paintings, depicting elaborate arrangements of vases, teapots, pitchers, and bottles, present heightened views of everyday life that sparkle with color and dazzle with precision. Hollis Engley’s ceramic tea bowls glow with richly glazed surfaces of tonal and textural layers. Michael Pietragalla’s wooden treasure boxes, which include ornate details, secret compartments, and luxurious interiors, are inspired by the royal receptacles of ancient China and Japan.
While their working methods vary, all three artists offer creations that intrigue with their beautiful exteriors and mysterious interiors. Together, they invite the viewer to experience the wonders of wood, clay and paint, fashioned into enclosed and contained forms.
