New Artists

One of the most exciting parts of putting together a new show is receiving new work from artists. For "Looking In/Looking Out", we have new pieces from several artists, including Cameron Bennett, Anthony D'Allesandro and his wife Lesley Campbell, Kate Doyle, returning artist Ed Hicks, John O'Shaughnessy, Gail Sauter, and Andrea Sawyer.

Cameron Bennett's quietly meditative piece "Shadow Light, Melody" emphasizes his classic technique and the precision of his characterizations. Kate Doyle is using charcoal and pastel, a new medium for us to have from her. Her pieces always engage the viewer in an ongoing dialogue. Perennial favorite Gail Sauter has given us a few of her water pieces. Andrea Sawyer's color palette emphasize the hard-edged shadows of her beach pieces.

Looking In/Looking Out - Opening Sept 15

"The eye is the window to the soul." The theme for the current show at Art 3 Gallery is "Looking In/Looking Out". Private spaces, private places - we asked our artists to recreate what they see when they peer in a window, open a door, visualize within the confines of their own head.
It is always fun to put together a group show at Art 3. We have an eclectic group of artists resulting in a wide range of artwork, from landscapes and still-lifes to abstract and multi-media pieces. Paintings in oil, acrylic, watercolor and pastel are showcased along with sculptures in metal, wood, and fabric.
For this show we have several new artists including Lincoln Perry, Rosemary Ladd, Jody Wright, and Cheri Dennett. Each artist adds a unique touch to our collection. Judith Shah has changed direction and sent us some great abstract paintings. We received several new pieces Ann Legg, Cynthia Niederheilman, John Sirois, Robert Collier, Dorine Gross, Edie Green, Olga Gernovski, Kate Doyle, Dustan Knight, Dennis Perrin, Pat Schappler, Frankie Tolman, Andrea Sawyer, Joyce Kingman, Ed Hicks, and Stan Moeller.
There will be an open house on the evening of Thursday Sept. 18th, in conjunction with Manchester Open Doors. Join us then or stop by anytime Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for a private showing.
