Marblehead Art Assoc. Winter Exhibit

The Marblehead Arts Association Winter Members’ Exhibit will be on display from the opening reception on November 10 through December 23, 2018. The show is hung at the MAA’s Hooper Mansion, 8 Hooper St., Marblehead, MA.

My acrylic painting, House of the Seven Gables Front Door, is my entry in this show. It was painted outside in the gardens of the H7G on an absolutely gorgeous May morning. The shadows were very pronounced at that time of day, and I was inspired by the series of strong diagonal shadows falling across the front of the house, caused by the sun hitting the slanted gables.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday & Sunday, noon-5 pm and Saturday, 10-5 pm. Closed Monday. Tel: (781) 631-2608.

All merchandise is juried, keeping in mind price points under $260 per piece as well as  quality craftsmanship and professional finish. With the entire shop being refreshed four times a year to feature all new work by new artists/artisans; there is always a reason to stop by and see what is available for sale. Each artist/artisan has an interesting story behind their work and their craft that our gallery associates enjoy sharing with buyers.
