Guest Show for June - Paul Kingsbury

 Sea Fever by John Masefield
I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way, where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.
A love of the sea - that's what John Masefield and Paul Kingsbury share. Masefield expressed his feelings through poetry, while Paul Kingsbury uses canvas, paint and brushes to convey his affection for "the lonely sea and the sky."
Kingsbury acrylics are featured on the Guest Wall at Art On Broadway during the month of June in his solo show, "The Wonders of the Sea.". The show opens on June 3 and continues through Saturday, June 27. A reception to celebrate these glorious paintings and to honor the man who painted them will be held on Saturday, June 13, from 6 to 9 p.m.
This is a wonderful collection of seascapes from an artist who has spent over 40 years depicting a subject he knows and loves. Be sure to visit the gallery this month - you'll swear you can smell the salt air.
