Allie Sabalis received a BA from Nazareth College of Rochester, N.Y and an MFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. She has since become well-known in Maine and Southern New England for her skillful technique in capturing realistic images of landscapes and still lifes.  For the Gallery 175 exhibit, Sabalis is showing large scale watercolor paintings of casually arranged domestic still lifes, rich in colorful and decorative detail that revel in the appreciation of ordinary material things.


Cathy Chin grew up in New York and received her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Rochester (NY) Institute of Technology and RISD.  After moving around the country for a number of years, she is now settled in Providence where she paints in her sunlit, home studio. Her wide range of subjects are observed from real life, and for this exhibit, she has produced a series of small beach scenes.  Her style is spontaneous and painterly with an underlying abstract structure of shapes, colors, edges and lines. Her beach scenes capture the freshness of the air and the glow of light.
