Drawing and Design for Children (ages 9 - 12) - Fridays, 3:30 - 5 p.m. - exploring line, shape and composition using a variety of materials, Jan 7 - Feb. 4

All five -week classes are $150.
Individual classes in either drawing or painting are always available and are $35. for a 90 min. class or $50. for two hours.

Holiday Open House Brings Artists and Artlovers Together

It was a beautiful day and the gallery had a constant flow of visitors on Saturday. Above are two of the artists in the show - Chris Lawrence and Suzanne Kossoy- chatting about art and life. The other two photos are of Chris Lawrence's sculptures in steel and found material, and the primary colors of the late Eddie Kindberg's painting on the wall behind. The artists in the group show enjoyed the chance to talk together and see each other's work and the possibility of a continuing artists' "salon" was suggested. Any comments or ideas?

Holiday Show preview

The show is hung and looks great! Here's a few samples of what will be on view this Saturday.
From top to bottom, they are:
a mixed media piece by Joan Monastero (window with a view of the Arctic Regions maps)
next to a painting of mine of a stormy Cape Cod scene
an interior by Viki Markle
five small paintings of mine
a vibrant still life by Suzanne Kossoy
a group of lovely pastoral landscapes by Greg Arnett
two photos of local landscape by Trina Greene
ceramic wall pieces by Brenda Lawrence

Chris Lawrence will be showing some new wall-mounted welded steel constructions also.
Hope to see you on Saturday. The gallery will also be open 12 - 5 on Sunday this weekend and next, but without the party!
After Christmas, I will return to the Saturday only hours for the rest of the month, or by appointment.
