“Gift of Art” is the December Art Show at the Main Street Art Gallery in Norcross Place, beside Sawyer River Trading Company. As the name implies, there are many works of art that would make a perfect holiday gift. The majority of artworks displayed are original paintings and sculptures with a wide range of price points and styles. For a more affordable gift, the gallery has numerous small artworks, boxes of cards, ceramic tiles, jewelry and matted prints. Shop locally and support local small businesses. There are no supply chain issues here!
In the Residents Gallery are nine artists – Sarah Eastman, Bill Fein, Laura Thompson, Barbara Perry, Sandi Poor, Rosemary Gerbutavich, James O’Donnell, Virginia Moore and Phyllis Tracy. These artists are displaying works in many styles- from realism to abstraction – and many mediums – pastels, oils, acrylics, watercolor, photography, acrylic pour and alcohol inks. Resident gallery artists pay a higher fee to display more of their work together. The new program has been very successful since it began in
In the rest of the gallery are oil or acrylic painters Sharon Allen, Jean Bradley, Martha Aucoin, Maryellen Moran and Don Onusseit. Photographers include Mary Borowski, Ernie Hiscox, Julie L’Heureux, Elaine Ford and Karen Lord. Lastly, John Girourd has three mixed media sculptures on display that are unique and thought provoking.
Just to name a few highlights of the show, check out Gerbutavich’s wonderful watercolor illustrations, O’Donnell’s incredibly realistic style, Bradley’s tropical colors. Come in and find your favorite piece.
The holidays are coming, art makes a unique gift that can be enjoyed for generations.
