This exhibition titled Rumination and the Aesthetic in Drawing | Form & Substance is the first time collaborative exhibition of the drawings of Ralph Gorvett and the ceramics of David Schneider to be held in Don Gorvett’s Perkins Cove Gallery in Ogunquit Maine.
Ralph Gorvett, the brother of Don Gorvett, has had presents in Don Gorvett’s galleries in Gloucester, MA, Portsmouth, NH and Ogunquit ME. Both Gorvett boys had the privilege studying with Elinor Marvin, art educator at Burlington High School in Burlington MA, and both receiving degrees through the School of the Museum of Fine Art in Boston, MA. Ralph Gorvett studied drawing, painting, and sculpture. Gorvett’s drawings are an elaborate compilation of designs and rhythms. His “automatic drawings” are inspired by the moment and intuition. He is also a serious student 19th and 20th-century music as seen through the context of history, philosophy, criticism and biography. Mr. Gorvett presently lives and works in Ogunquit Maine.
David Schneider is a ceramist and sculptor teaching at the University of Southern Maine. He has an M.F.A. in ceramics with a minor in sculpture from Tulane University and earned a B.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. David Schneider has had his work represented by Don Gorvett’s Piscataqua Fine Art and Perkins Cover Gallery for many years. Schneider enjoys working with ceramics because he appreciates the flexibility, responsiveness, and tactility of the material. He feels “the connection with the process and a challenge that keeps offering something new”. In addition to showing at Perkins Cove Gallery, David also is Showcased at the Barn Gallery Fall Exhibition on view until October 10.
