In the Gallery Now:

Main Gallery | Member’s Show

Our first Member’s show of the year features art from over 20 local artists. The theme for this show is ‘Moving Forward’ and mixes beautiful mountain landscapes and individual ideas behind what it means to move forward. We invite you to wander through the main gallery taking in multiple mediums of art. 

Gallery 1 | Barbara Maye

We are excited to announce the return of Barbara Maye and her stunning Soapstone works. Barbara’s art is inspired by the arcane wisdom of Mother Earth found in our surrounding mountains. This new series explores soapstone sculptures as they come to be through metamorphosis. 

 

Gallery 2 | Baberaid

This collection by artist, Baberaid, aims to generate discussion about depression and mental illness in a small mountain town — even if it’s just an internal dialogue. By opening up about their personal experiences, Baberaid hopes to lessen the isolation that comes with clinical mental illness. The vulnerability and honesty felt in the works creates an intimate sense of connection with their folk/contemporary outsider pieces. 

 

Gallery 3 | Charise Folnovic

For many, 2020 was the year of internal exploration, pondering mistakes, and reflecting on previous travel experiences. Charise has taken those combined experiences to create (un)Censored. This exhibition explores the naivety and innocence of children living in developing countries and tourists who (unknowingly) exploit them. The work is conceptual and asks the viewer to pause an reflect.
