Well tomorrow is our opening from 11:00-2:00 and we are ready for a crowd!
The show is fabulous and has a great variety of pairs and pears!
Here is the full press release:
Art 3 Gallery presents their winter show “Pairs and Pears”, on display March 1-April 9.
The pear has remained a constant source of inspiration to artists throughout the ages and Art 3 is celebrating the wonder of this sensual shape. “This graceful fruit is often overlooked, even by chefs!” according to Lee Forgosh of Art 3. Influenced by the elegance of its form, the show includes many still life paintings of pears, from abstracted imagery to the more formal and traditional and each painting exudes its own strong presence. “This simple fruit has a unique shape, and its lines and curves can even suggest the human figure,” continues Forgosh.
“To add variety to the show, we decided to have some fun with the title and the artwork, including a variety of “Pairs” in this show,” says Joni Taube of Art 3. The play on words inspired several artists to submit unique pairs, from “Koi and Lotus” by Dustan Knight to “Insight”, a series of captivating eyes by Andrea Sawyer. Included in the show are several groupings of two small pieces by the same artist and paintings featuring pairs of every sort.
An opening and artist’s reception for “Pairs and Pears” will be held on Thursday, March 4 from 11:00-2:00 at Art 3 Gallery, 44 West Brook Street in Manchester.
The show is on display until April 9 during regular gallery hours Monday-Friday 9:00-4:00. Evening and week-end appointments are always welcome.
