The Gallery at First Parish Church
Presents:

Beatrice Dauge
Abstract Oil Paintings

At the First Parish Art Gallery - April 26, 2008 - June 7, 2008

About the Artist:

Beatrice Dauge Kaufmann was born in Lausanne, Switzerland to a French father and a German mother. She currently lives and works in Boston. Through her profession she had the opportunity to travel all over the world. She traveled in Europe, North and Central America, Africa, Asia and South Pacific.

She lived in Lausanne, London, Paris and Florence, where she studied art history, drawing, painting and sculpture. Through her travels, Beatrice Dauge Kaufmann explored the colors around her. She is not afraid of her own emotions and can express them in abstract pictures or landscapes. Some of her works depict figurative elements.

She frequently uses square shapes to structure and define the space of her paintings and uses a wide range of colors. Her love for the sky and the sea inspires her use of blues and greens in her paintings. The fall season in New England has introduced her to the infinite palette of oranges, pinks and reds. The color effects of her work evoke the feeling of freedom, density and space. She hopes to give peace in her work and around her.

Currently Beatrice's work is part of numerous private collections in Switzerland, France, Italy, Japan, Cyprus, England, Mexico, Taiwan and the USA.

About the Mary Jo Rines Gallery At First Parish

The Gallery At First Parish opened September 17, 2000.

On September 13, 2011, the Standing Committee voted to name the Gallery in honor of its founder,
Mary Jo Rines, who died on September 4, 2011. A special exhibit of Mary Jo’s work was on display
in the Gallery from September 20 – September 30, 2011.

Its purpose, as described by the founders:

The mission of The Gallery At First Parish is to add another dimension
to the spiritual fabric of our lives by exhibiting the work of visual artists
who seek to contribute to a deeper understanding of the human condition.

The Gallery is intended to be a service to the parish, the artist and the wider community.

It is open to the public without charge 9 AM – 4 PM weekdays, and 9 AM – 12:30 PM Sundays.
