Dana Barunas, Rich Foley and Davina Perl
Barunas, prefers landscape painting and finds herself drawn to waterscapes; she loves the reflections and the movement of water. Ever evolving, Dana has recently ventured into abstract art. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design, at Mass College of Art. After graduation, she traveled to Europe where she remained in Munich, Germany for 13 years. Traveling throughout Europe visiting museums influenced her artistic values and appreciation of nature and art.
Dana eventually settled in Pembroke and discovered pastel painting. It was love at first stroke!
Perl has always “thought” in pictures. As an emotional response to her subjects, she paints what she sees and feels, capturing the subtleties of color and form, and nuances of light and shadow. She received at BFA from the College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio and attended Parsons School of Design and the Art Students League in New York City.
Foley's goal is to evoke in the viewer a feeling of peaceful harmony and balance while revealing a moment in time and place. He finds watercolor, with all the subtle atmospheric impressions, to be his preferred medium.
His paintings have received awards and have been juried into several shows including the Scituate Arts Association’s Juried Show, the All New England Open Juried Exhibit, the Hull Artists regional juried show, and the Hull Lifesaving Museum juried exhibit. Many of his works are in private collections.
In October of 2021, she exhibited at the Florence Biennale in Italy. In 2022, she participated in an exhibition at the Whistler House Museum of Art in Lowell, MA. Her paintings have been featured in solo and group exhibitions in galleries, including the Ambassador Gallery in New York City and Jensen Fine Art in Brookline, MA and New York City, The Copley Society, The Wilson Gallery and the Kanji Aso Gallery in Boston as well as many others throughout out New England.
