“Walking in a Winter Wonderland” Show at Main Street Art Gallery
Come celebrate winter with us! After a three week hiatus, the Main Street Art Gallery in North Conway Village is opening its doors once again and celebrating winter in all its glory. Whether you love to get outside and have fun or stay inside and dream of warmer times, we have some art for you. The show runs through the end of March.
The current Residents Room artists are Bill Fein, Sarah Eastman, John Girouard, Barbara Perry, Laura Guptill and Lucy Merrow. Lucy Merrow will be having a reception in early February so stay tuned for more details. In the rest of the gallery are 20 fine artists and 3 fine crafters. We have a style of art that suits all tastes, from very realistic work to colorful expressive abstract art. We welcome back Jean Bradley and Rik Phillips to our gallery. Rik’s sculptures will surely get you talking and Jean’s paintings will warm you up with her tropical subjects and colors. If you enjoy realism, check out Jim O’Donnell, Martha Aucoin, Sharon Allen and Syndi White’s work. Did you say you like watercolors? Barbara Perry, Sandi Poor and Rosemary Gerbutavich’s work are not to be missed. Our photographers – Karen Lord, Julie L’heureux and Ernie Hiscox – each have a unique point of view when approaching a subject. And our fine crafters offer a mix of artful and useful creations – Barbara Anderson’s handmade clayworks, Maria Testa’s silk scarves and Debony Thorne’s glass jewelry, globes and trays. These are just a few of our talented artists and craftsmen.
Be sure to check out our newly painted and freshly renovated space. We would like to thank the Ham Foundation for generously awarding us with grant money to add a professional hanging system. We are proud of the changes made during the last three weeks and hope you will drop by the gallery to see our fresh face.
The gallery is located in Norcross Place, adjacent to Sawyer River Trading Company and is open Thursday through Sunday 11am until 4pm. Shop locally and support small businesses.
