Opening Reception for Jon Mulhern’s “Impulses” at Peter Marcelle Project
May 2, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Abstract painter Jon Mulhern is a local artist and teacher whose work reflects
on natural movements through wind, land, water and paint. Mulhern plays with
the eye, creating intimate moments of great detail, engaging the viewer. Each
work is captured within a fantastical atmosphere of color, texture and paint.
Impulses, his first solo exhibition with Peter Marcelle, is comprised of his most
recent works. Included are many pieces created over this long winter,
along with his painting, Trouro Landyard, that premiered at Art Southampton last
Jon Mulhern was born in the Maryland suburbs of Washington D.C. and was an
artist from the start. First attending the nationally known Visual Arts Center
program during high school, he then studied art at the Maryland Institute,
College of Art (MICA), earning his BA in Fine Arts, followed by his Master’s of Art
in Teaching. Jon then moved to Brooklyn N.Y. to pursue his careers in both
education and art. He relocated to the Hamptons 4 years ago, following an
offer to be a Visual Arts Professor for The Ross School. Exploring his new world in
Mulhern has rediscovered his passion for nature, a part of his art
that he had found very elusive in the city. He has started to become locally
connected to the people and the environment, and has found a new breath of
style in it.
Saturdays & Sundays: 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
