Paintings by Carole Lioacano on display

Jul 15, 2017

July 15th – September 15th 2017

Described as a Romantic Impressionist, Carole is an award-winning, plein air artist who likes to exaggerate the moment, the feelings and the experience of the day by pushing the envelope through color and texture.  Carole’s artwork will be on display in the lobby at BankGloucester on Main Street in Gloucester beginning on July 15 and running through September 15th, 2017. Her show at the Bank is being hailed as “A Love Affair with Cape Ann”.

After spending many summers painting on Cape Ann, Carole is fulfilling her dream of living, teaching and painting here, while following the sun to paint in Tarpon Springs, Florida during the winter months.  She works in watercolor, acrylic, pastel, pencil, pen & ink and oils and can often be seen painting on site most mornings and evenings all around Cape Ann.  Carole states “Cape Ann is my subject in all her glory, sunsets, mists and sunshine. Each day presents a new challenge. I never try to paint the same scene in the same way, instead I try to challenge myself by choosing a different viewpoint, an altered palette, or a different emphasis.”

With a BS in Art Education from Pratt Institute, Carole has taught art classes in the New York and Long Island school districts.  Since 1975, she has taught adults and children in her studio in New York. Many of her students are prize winners in art competitions throughout the New York area.  Carole’s teachers include: Martin Ahearn, Betty Lou Schlemm, Domenic DiStefano as well as many notable Cape Ann Artists.

This year Carole was awarded “Best of Show” at the Marblehead Art Festival. In addition to numerous awards in art shows, she was commissioned to create a 20 panel acrylic series and a 15 acrylic painting series for the Rockland Psychiatric Center in Orangeburg, New York. 

According to Carole “My intent is to be a conduit through my art - to convey to the viewer the essence of the moment by experiencing the feeling and energy of the scene.  If I am able to convey the feelings of excitement and joy that I experience while painting the beauty of Cape Ann, then I feel I have succeeded and created a memorable piece of artwork.”
