Guest Show for November - "Cohesion"

The Guest Wall for November will feature artwork by a nineteen local guest artists. The subject for the show is "Cohesion," and the work was juried by a panel of Art On Broadway member artists. This is the first time that eight of the nineteen artists have shown their work in the gallery.

The show opens on Wednesday, November 6, and will continue through November 30, with an Artists Reception on Saturday, November 9, from 6 to 9 p.m. Media includes acrylic, basketry, clay, collage, found metal, mixed media, monoprint, pastel, and oil. It is an impressive show!

Visitors familiar with the gallery will recognize work by one of our former member artists, Joe Pogan. Joe creates wonderful 3D sculptures using found metal objects. His fascinating pieces offer the viewer an insight into his thought process and creativity. Whether you are a frequent visitor or will be seeing Joe's work for the first time, you won't be disappointed.


In addition to Joe, the following artists have work in this exhibit: Edgard Abadia, Thom Caccamo, Margaret C. Carter, Stephanie Cissna, Leonardo Cocco, Pablo Cordero, Michelle Gallagher, Mark Larsen, Diane Marks-Bestor, Lisa Marshall, Denise McDonald, Marjorie Meyer, Janet Ronacher, Eunice Sause, George Schweser, Kat Sowa, Bonnie Tucker, and George Woodcock.

November's Demo Artist - Gretha Lindwood

Gretha Lindwood will share her process of painting with soft pastels on sandpaper on Sunday, November 17, from 1 to 3 p.m. Our Sunday demos are always free and open to the public.
Using the same techniques she uses when painting en plein air, a French term meaning in the open air, Lindwood crosses the bridge between drawing and painting. Her award winning landscape work imparts an appreciation for the play of light on the subject, evoking an impression of familiarity for the viewer. In describing her work she explains, "It is my job to make the viewer feel they could step into the painting and know how it feels to be there."
Join us on November 17 to experience Gretha's creative process.
