Seaside First Saturday Art Walk

Opening reception for Power of Two, an exhibition that includes regional artists who have managed to produce body of work that reads like an oasis of calm, a subtle backdrop during the time of high season in vacation land. Indeed, the show title sounds like a recipe for chaos given the summer busy activities and adventures yet when teamed with the artists selected and combined with the work they have created, the gallery adds a dimension of serenity that is sensed as much as seen.

“Without giving too much away, the artists arriving are watercolorist Paul Brent, oil painter Victoria Brooks, wood turner Daniel Harris, textile artist Cherry Jones Harris, jeweler Cindy Bricca, textile artist Linda Ballard, wood worker Mike Brown, whimsical artist Marga Stanley;  each  artist has  a connection to the number two,” says Denise Fairweather, gallery owner and the Power of Two show’s curator, “because meeting an artist in person and listening to an artist talk is half the fun of attending an Art Walk!”

Seaside nature photographer Neal Maine introduces his latest natural history journal of images and will speak at 6: pm.
