The Galleries at Lynn Arts (GALA) are exhibiting the autumn Member Showcase! Come and enjoy the many styles of the local artists who are taking part in the show. Members’ artwork will hang from November 11 until December 16, 2022 at GALA’s beautiful showrooms at 25 Exchange Street, Lynn, MA. You can also view the paintings in the exhibit from the comfort of your home by going to their website www.galleriesatlynnarts.org
I am happy to have two paintings in the exhibit: Snow Cardinal, acrylic, 8″ x 10″, $250 and Snowy Gables, original screen print A.P., 11″ x 14″ framed, $200. Snow Cardinal was inspired by a cheerful cardinal that visits my yard all year. Most of the year, he lifts my spirits with his beautiful songs; but in the winter, he also looks stunning against the snow and bare tree branches. Snowy Gables is an original screen print done in blue and black ink on 100% rag paper. It had a small run of only about 8, and this one is an Artist’s Pull. It was inspired by the way that the old houses’ steep roofs look in the snow when the moonlight shines on them.
The opening reception on Nov. 11 is open to the public and donations are welcome! Please call GALA for more information. http://www.galleriesatlynnarts.org
“The Galleries At LynnArts (GALA) is an arts based collaborative, artist run community art gallery and a 501 (c) (3) tax deductible private foundation. It is lead by a group of local artists and art organizers who have designed two galleries and a gallery shop. These spaces are used to exhibit group and solo shows as well as house a gallery shop filled with arts and crafts produced by North Shore artists and makers. We work with artists and makers at every stage of their career. Emerging artists are given support in developing their work, preparing work for professional presentation and exhibition, and access to the local gallery system. GALA is a community where the gallery spaces and outside events are used to promote and sell artwork from artists who traditionally have had access to galleries as well as those makers who might not have had access into the space and to honor their products and objects equally. We create community through exhibit receptions, artists’ sales and fairs, and by using the gallery spaces for public and private events. It is our intention to support the whole artist by creating programming to promote skills growth, wellbeing, and foster a healthy art community.”
