Out Side the Box...

This Friday will be a very unusual and amazing night at the Gallery. "Theatre of the Absurd - Beauty in Uncommon Forms" is all about alternative, mixed media, and "steampunk" art. The works of Gallery artists Linda and Kelly Dean Manganaro, Betty Wilson, Amelia Costa, Victoria Rose Martin and Karen McGovern will be featured. These artists create truly unique art from found objects, mixed metals, clay and glass. Three dimensional creations of truly uncommon beauty. Victoria is known for her whimsical and sometimes dark ceramic figures, often in costume. Karen creates dramatic jewelry, often using antique elements such as German doll bodies and optic lenses. Her pieces are narrative, and many come with an original short story inspired by elements in the design. Linda and her Husband Kelly create unbelievable furniture, installations and figures from all manner of material, antiquities and found objects. Betty is well known for her abstract glass creations, and amazing interpretive sculptures. Amelia blends text with clay to create scenes, figures and scenarios filled with meaning.

Special guest artist Georgette Pressler of Devious Body Art will use the human form as canvas, painting live in the Gallery. Her work is simply stunning. David Ryan of Kiss My Glass joins us out front, working with glass in flame to create all manner of amazing designs.

Simply put, you CANNOT MISS THIS SHOW! See you at 6:00!
