Hilda Neily has debuted her latest series of oil paintings, “2018 Summer Streetscapes in Provincetown,” on exhibit through late September, at the Hilda Neily Gallery in Provincetown’s East End Gallery District (Massachusetts).
View oil on board plein air paintings of the cottages and gardens, boats, bays, and dunes of the area that keep the Provincetown mystique alive. Neily’s signature vibrant landscapes, seascapes, and still lifes are reminiscent of the great French Impressionists; her contemporary works are a soulful culmination of light and color, which have been and continue to be her inspiration.
Neily has been living and creating in Provincetown, the oldest continuous artist colony in the U.S., for over 40 years. She started painting with American master impressionist Henry Hensche at the Cape School of Art in Provincetown in the early 1970s. Hensche founded the Cape School of Art in 1933, carrying on and developing the ideas of his own teacher and mentor, Charles Hawthorne, who started the Cape Cod School of Art in Provincetown in 1899, paving the way for the town to become one of America’s preeminent art communities. Hensche embraced the Hawthorne “color note” approach to painting.
