If you came to Shell Designs’ exhibit last year, you know how amazing Mary Bowles’ and Kerrie Bromberger’s work is, and how quickly it goes.  Make sure you come back this year and see what’s new at “Summer Garden by the Sea” – and come early before it is all gone.  At Khan Studio,  June 29th – July 12 with an opening reception on Thursday, July 4th from 5:00-7:30 during Nights on the Neck.

Fun at Khan Studio and the GMG Gallery

fun at khan studio and GMG Gallery

No one can say we don’t have lots of fun at Khan Studio and the Good Morning Gloucester Gallery at Madfish Wharf on Rocky Neck.  In case anyone is wondering what the bunch of us are doing – we’re downing these amazing jello shots made by Alicia Penderosa. 

The gallery is now open and the first major event will be our Grand Opening Mug Up on Sunday, May 26th from 9:00am-11:30 or so.   Most galleries have their openings in the evening so they can feed you lovely little tidbits and ply you with alcohol to entice you to buy something.  Since this is Khan Studio and the Good Morning Gloucester Gallery, we’re going for a Good Morning grand opening with deviled eggs, cheesecake and mimosas (in memory of Evelyn), so some plying will take place along with good morning fun and food.  There will of course be coffee and tea for those who don’t imbide that early in the day – but as Wendie Demuth always said, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere.

Time and Tide Opening Reception Masquerade and Illusion Sept 17th

 

Friend of the Blog Kristina Brendel writes in-

T&T Masquerade

Time & Tide Fine Art, 4 Market Street in Ipswich will hold an Opening Reception for their latest exhibition, Masquerade and Illusion on Friday, September 17 from 7-9 pm.

Time & Tide is teaming up with Time Well Spent to collect books at the reception for More Than Words, a nonprofit social enterprise that empowers youth who are in the foster care system, court involved, homeless, or out of school to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a business. Visit http://mtwyouth.org for more information about More Than Words.
Masquerade and Illusion includes painting, photography, multi-media and sculpture from area artists including Marilyn Swift, John Geesink, Anne Demeter, and Thorpe Feidt. Also included in the show are works by Belarusian painter Vladimir Kontsedailov. (The photograph is a detail from "Masquerade" by Kontsedailov.)

For the night of the reception only, Brian Brogan of The Painted Story (whose studio and gallery is on the third floor of 2 Central Street in Ipswich) will display his work as well. Brogan’s work is primal, shamanistic; showing human’s indigenous spirituality and equality.

"I’m hoping that we will raise a few eyebrows with this exhibition," smiles Kristina Brendel, Time & Tide’s director. "I’d really like to push the expectations of a local gallery past the tried and true into artwork that makes people pause and wonder."

Masquerade and Illusion will be on display at Time & Tide until November 15.
