Norton Framing and Gallery welcomes the artwork of Martha Keating

artist statement
Marty started making art as a silkscreen printer with a pushcart full of greeting cards of vegetables at Quincy Market in 1976. She later attended Mass College of Art where she studied drawing, painting and sculpture. She has studied at The Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, the deCordova Museum, the MFA and taken many workshops around New England.
Primarily a landscape painter, Marty interprets the New England South Coast with its marshes and farms as well as other scenic areas in a variety of styles from realism through pure abstraction.  She strives for luminosity in all her work and to use color in unusual ways to create a mood. The geometry of the farms, farm buildings and the feeling of open space In the coastal communities is a great influence on both her abstract and more realistic work.
