Trent Manning will be here for a pop-up show with his latest cast of quirky characters and found object sculptures. This disillusioned cynic still clings tightly to his inner child and that paradox is reflected in his work. He often shows us the underside of whimsy that catches you off guard. His love of old discarded materials sets the direction for his work and provides constant new inspiration.
One weekend only:
Friday, Nov. 7, 5 - 8pm
Saturday, Nov. 8, 12 - 6pm; Artist's Talk at 2pm
Sunday, Nov. 9, 12 - 4pm
A brilliant Flower Moon occured in May of this year, shortly after Allison lost her battle with cancer. In this very special tribute, Midge Baudouin and Tracy Stilwell will present new work using fabric created by Allison. Four creative artist friends have been invited to create work inpsired by Allison: Kecia Frazee Deveney, Theresa Disney, Jessica Deane Rosner, and Linda Willis.
Join us at 2pm on November 15 for a Remembrance Gathering in the gallery.
Join us for this annual kick-off to the holiday season. The gallery will be transformed into an enchanted seasonal wonderland, brimming with holiday decor, ornaments, edibles, and fresh art to delight your spirit.
We will host Midge Baudouin and Tracy Stilwell for the first of three holiday trunk shows. They will be showing new work and oodles of handmade items for your gift list.
Master Bear Maker Darlene Allen will be showing her delightful collection of felted creatures. Bears, of course, in all shapes and sizes plus a fox, a Frenchie bulldog no doubt, pandas, and polar bears.
Things will be merry and bright and we'll share some of our favorite holiday treats from Aunt Ne Ne's Pantry.
If you need a bit of inspiration for your wish list, come meet one of the most imaginative folks we know: Melissa Menzer. Her latest collection of antique assemblages and elegant vintage birds will be cause for celebration.
This rounds out our Holiday Trunk Show series and is always a festive time in Sanford, as it falls on the same weekend as the Historic Holiday Tour of Homes.
