Summer Artist Updates I

We certainly are missing our creatively talented employee and faithful blogger Laura who as some of you may know has gone on to further pursue her interests in graphic and web design. We will do our best to keep the blog going starting with keeping you posted on what some of the gallery’s artists have been up to this summer.

Congratulations to Sondra Arkin and Laurel Hausler for their summer solo exhibitions!

Sondra Arkin’s show “Topography” opened this past weekend at Ward Ellinger Gallery in Rehoboth Beach, DE. I recently got a sneak peak of the work and saw her in the act of creating some of her encaustics in her studio. In addition to encaustic paintings, the exhibition features richly hued oil paintings. Take a trip to the beach and stop by and see the show which runs through August 28th with an opening reception on August 9th, 5 to 7 pm.

Laurel Hausler’s exhibition “My House is Haunted: Twenty Rooms” is currently on view at Gallery in the Woods in Brattleboro, VT through August 30th. The show presents twenty paintings each representing a room or part of the grounds of a haunted house.

We have several of Sondra's encaustic pieces currently on display at the gallery. We also have many of Laurel's paintings hanging. We will be hosting a solo exhibition of Laurel's works this fall. Additional details will be announced later.
