Martha's Vineyard Calendar Exhibit: Rosalie Ripaldi Shane
Martha's Vineyard Calendar

Exhibit: Rosalie Ripaldi Shane

Open during MV Film Center hours, this exibit showcases the work of Rosalie Ripaldi Shane. 

Rosalie Ripaldi Shane was born in Boston and studied art at Massachusetts College of Art, the DeCordova Museum School and Brandeis University. She is a member of the Copley Society, the Cambridge Art Association, and the Martha’s Vineyard Art Association, where she has served on the board since 1992. She has shown her work since 1983 at the Old Sculpin Gallery in Edgartown and at other venues on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. Ms. Shane lives in Boston in the winter months and has been a summer resident of Edgartown since 1979. Her work is owned by patrons throughout the U.S. and Europe.

Ms. Shane paints in oil with highly saturated color and thick impasto. Color and texture are her passion, and never so much as in her inimitable and iconic cupcake paintings. The frosting is thickly applied with a palette knife using colors reminiscent of candy and french pastries. They look good enough to eat. In her flower studies, one can almost smell their fragrance, with each petal defined by its sculptural shape. Landscapes flow with lush colors and an expansive line; seascapes have windswept waves, exquisitely painted water and clouded horizons. Other subjects include seagulls, American flags, and, occasionally, surrealistic paintings with hidden meanings. She hopes the viewer will dive into her vibrant, colorful world and experience its vitality.
