Main Street Artists Gallery seeks to provide an oasis for your fire weary soul. Its September show features the beauty of wood work by Bruce Powell. Powell elevates ordinary objects such as cutting boards, boxes and wine tables with elegant design and intricate images made of inlaid exotic woods.
Artful and useful, each piece is an example of his craftsmanship. Powell will bring a full array of cutting boards, personal treasure boxes and graceful wine tables for the public’s enjoyment. Gallery members will also display their offerings in September for yet another well-balanced collection of local art.
Join the galley Sept. 3, the first Friday of the month, between 5 and 7 p.m. for the opening reception of this lovely show. As a precaution, this reception will be without food or beverages, as the area is experiencing a rise in the delta variant of coronavirus. Masks are required for this indoor event. The gallery hopes to return to its beloved tradition of food and wine receptions as soon as it is safe to do so.
Many of gallery members have had the experience of evacuation and loss along with the rest of the community. The gallery invites members and the public to attend the event for a moment’s respite, and the hope that viewing art with friends and neighbors can be a balm to the soul.
Main Street Artists Gallery will attempt to keep gallery hours Wednesday through Friday 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Saturdays 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. during the fire. Please feel free to call 283-1134 for framing requests and other inquiries.
