Sherry Rhyno | Gallery 31
At Gallery 31 in Orleans, the artists capture the luminous light unique to Cape marshes, beaches, and bogs, conveying a sense of peacefulness. It’s hard to ever tire of the majesty of a crashing wave, the beach at dawn, the lookout from Fort Hill, or the beauty of a copper pot with berries and linen captured in these beautiful representational works.
When it comes to choosing a piece for the home, Gallery 31’s owner and proprietor, Sherry Rhyno, advises customers to find a painting that speaks to them, then make it the focal point in the home. “Build the décor around it in a natural, neutral palette. Let the beauty of nature captured in art set the stage for good times with family and friends,” says Rhyno. Exceptional, affordable art is what you’ll find at Gallery 31. Nationally known artists include Richard McKinley, the 2010 inductee into the Pastel Society of America’s Hall of Fame and Deb Quinn-Munson, who uses a palette knife with oil in compositions with an intimate view, such as beach grass up close at the edge of a marsh. Jeanne Rosier Smith’s still life paintings of fruit, cheese, and wine are luscious classical examples with lasting appeal. Talented Cape artists round out Gallery 31 offerings, from local scenes by Todd Ash, Robina Carter, and Gloria Leon, to sand and sea paintings by artist/proprietor Sherry Rhyno.
Friendly service is a top priority at Gallery 31 and their “take it home on approval” flexibility can’t be beat. It’s really no surprise that Gallery 31 is known by many as “the art collector’s jewel.”
