We have some wonderful paintings by Sarah Rakes which have just come to us through a collector who has reluctantly decided to part with some of her Rakes pieces. These are oil paintings from the early 1990’s. A rare opportunity that doesn’t come along often!
We are excited to welcome Willard Hill’s work to Main Street Gallery. Folk artists make their art from whatever is at hand and Willard began making his art in earnest when he discovered he could fashion his imaginative sculptures from simple materials like masking tape and wire. We think his creations are quintessential folk art.
We recently acquired two exceptional Woodie paintings on wood. This angel painting is one of his most popular subjects. The other is a fun theme; a porch party with lots of music and dancing! Who wouldn’t want to be there?
A new artist for us whose work we have included in our current pottery exhibit is Tony Raffalovich. His artistic passions are wood and ceramics so why not combine them? The marriage works, each lending to the other, creating a new and unusual piece of art.
Our newest exhibition features 14 artists. We are exhibiting both studio and folk potters. Included are several new artists who have not previously shown at Main Street Gallery. The exhibition page shows photos of the exhibit and if you scroll down, there are three images for each artist of their pottery. Pictured here is the work of Barry Gregg.
Eric Legge’s colorful paintings are featured in our current pottery exhibition. What goes better together than pottery and flowers (and the occasional landscape)? Check out his webpage to see what we have of his that is new!
We saw Annie Cochran just before a health issue sent her to the hospital last month. The good news is she is now home and is recovering with help from her daughter. We wish her well and know she will be happy when she is able to make her imaginative paintings once again.
Carolyn Simmons enjoys making her whimsical ceramic jugs and it shows. She is not afraid to give her funky animals and people personalities and situations to make us smile. This “Chicken Square Dance” is a good example!
