New Exhibition Explores Notion of Home
Works in Painting, Printmaking, and Mixed Media Sculpture
Clifton Springs, NY – A new exhibition at Main Street Arts features artwork that surrounds a very familiar theme: home. House and Home
is an exhibition featuring Jerry Alonzo, Chris Baker, Dale Klein, Emily Rapport, and Susan Stuart. Through a combination of painting, printmaking, and sculpture; these five artists depict both the structure of a house and the nostalgic feeling of the notion of "home".
The style and technique that each artist employs for the work included in this exhibition is distinct to that artist. This diversity in imagery adds depth and overall complexity to the seemingly simple theme.
The press and public are invited to attend the opening reception on Saturday, July 9 from 4 to 7 p.m.
Main Street Arts is open to the public and as always, entry is free. Wine and snacks will be served at the opening reception on July 9.
