Artist Paul Pedulla is preparing for a homecoming at the Chelmsford Library for the month of April, where his original paintings will be on exhibit. An opening reception is planned for Saturday, April 6, 2013, 2:00 – 4:00 PM at the main library, 25 Boston Road. The artist will be present and the public is invited.
Paul remembers the day he realized, as an 8th grader in a wonderful art class in the Chelmsford school system, that art wouldn’t be part of his high school curriculum. So he let art go, graduated from CHS in 1973, from Boston College in 1977 and went on to a successful career in advertising. He took another look at his art side seven years ago, for the first time since the 8th grade.
His emergence as an artist has since been rapid. Juried shows led to sales, press attention and gallery representation. Pedulla’s paintings are now found at the venerable Tao Water Gallery of Provincetown and Barnstable, the esteemed Sharon Weiss Gallery of Columbus, Ohio, and his work has also been featured this year at the innovative Gold Gallery in Boston. In addition, his paintings are currently on exhibit in the Thomas Moser Showroom at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel.
Paul Pedulla’s work is in collectors’ homes and businesses from Los Angeles to Germany. The artist’s contemporary paintings begin with fresh ideas about space and place. What one sees is a moment, often revealing a relationship between neighboring houses, a road and the landscape, the sky and the sea, figures in a room or a window and the world it views. Paul was featured in ARTSCOPE Magazine, has appeared in the publication’s centerfold, has been written about by well-known interior designer Ana Donohue and was a featured artist at bostonartlife.com.
The artist lives in Cambridge, as well as in Kennebunk, Maine and Miami Beach, Florida. His parents, Marianne and Peter Pedulla, resided in Chelmsford for 54 years until this past November, when they sold the family home on Brentwood Road.
Pedulla’s Chelmsford Library show will run throughout the month of April. In addition to the acrylic-on-canvas originals on exhibit, limited edition gicleé prints of Paul’s paintings are also available. Please contact the artist directly for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
