The Next Wave @ Flatrocks Gallery
The Next Wave
From the earliest days of fish and stone, Cape Ann has continually redefined itself. We who live here shape and are shaped by how we use this place, what we give to it, what its future will be.
Flatrocks Gallery has assembled a group of younger artists who embody this process of reinvention. In our fall show The Next Wave we see them rethinking the world with whimsy, energy and inventiveness – finding new ways to use traditional media, to transform and be transformed by their surroundings. Above all their work is meant to be
lived with and enjoyed.
Featuring: Brett Dunton, Jenna Powell, Ben MacAdam, Elizabeth Woodward, Nate Longcope, Daniel Semero, Brooks Gibson, Nina Samoiloff, Sean Hurley, Whitney Gibson, Nika Feldman, Jamison Knowlton, Jess Semeraro, Ari Martin.
Through Dec.30th Thu-Sun 12-5pm or by appt.
