Trained in oils and watercolors local artist, Emily Arenberg, has mastered the technique of coastal resin art. Drawing on her love of the ocean, Emily creates aerial views of beaches, oceans and waves.
“I’ve been concentrating on waves. I’ve become a little obsessed with perfecting my technique and seeing what sort of wave I can create,” she explains.
The resin is mixed with pigments and applied in layers to create the illusion of depth and foaming waves. Using food safe, non-toxic, UV resistant epoxy resin, Emily creates a variety of cutting boards, trays, coasters, mirrors and more. She has done custom counter tops as well. Also included in the exhibit will be Emily’s paintings on swordfish bills featuring octopus, jellyfish and other marine life.
Award winning local painter, John Safrit, seeks to capture the joy and beauty of the natural world.
