New Era Gallery reception for “Early Summer 2013”

“On the Bay” by Edward Movitz.

New Era Gallery in Vinalhaven is hosting an artists’ reception 5-7 p.m. Sat., June 22 for “Early Summer 2013.” The show will feature work by Michael Chandler, Edward Movitz, and Cristy West. Michael Chandler’s work crisscrosses the territory between representation and abstraction with remarkable agility. Edward Movitz’s paintings and prints are graphic representations of iconic island imagery. Cristy West’s paintings and collages blend abstract color and drawn markings. The Windy Way Barn, located directly behind the gallery, will concurrently feature an installation of larger abstract works on paper by Daveda Movitz.  The exhibition will run through July 10.
