Gallery One, a cooperative of mid-career artists working in a wide variety of media and styles from representational to abstract, including painting, sculpture and works on paper, will exhibit at the Guilford Art Center’s Mill Gallery, from Friday, April 22, through Sunday, May 15. The artists’ vision is to provide Southeastern Connecticut with a stimulating resource and to support one another as artists.
An opening reception will be held Friday, April 22, from 5 to 7 p.m. and a closing reception with Jazz Circle improvisational music inspired by the artwork on Sunday, May 15 from 2 to 4 p.m. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
“The Mill Gallery at the Guilford Art Center is a wonderful canvas for us to design the exhibition using our work as the compositional elements,” says Gallery One director Judith Barbour Osborne, “creating a flow from piece to piece (artist to artist), creating juxtapositions of similar and opposite pieces while considering formal aspects such as line, color, form, weight, and so on.”
Member artists include David Brown, Ashby Carlisle, Catherine Christiano, Bette Ellsworth, Gray Jacobik, Rick Lacey, Judith Barbour Osborne, T. Willie Raney, Diana Rogers, Rick Silberberg and Jill Vaughn. Carlisle and Christiano are Old Lyme residents while Thelma Halloran, who uses the artist name of T. Willie Raney, is a teacher at Lyme-Old Lyme Middle School. Deborah Hornbake of East Haddam, Conn., and Steve Lloyd of W. Brattleboro, Vt., (formerly of Chester, Conn.) will be joining them for this exhibition.
The Artists of Gallery One exhibit in various locations along the Connecticut shoreline. Additional information about the artists and upcoming exhibitions can be found at www.galleryoneCT.com.
