ArtSpace Second Saturday and Gallery Opening: "Visual Expressions in Cloth"

This weekend, January 10th, is ArtSpace Maynard's 2nd Saturday event and the next opening in the Gallery. Even ArtSpace Downtown is participating.

At three o'clock we invite you to kick off 2nd Saturday by going to ArtSpace Downtown, where Gail Erwin will be discussing her artwork and talking about her use of the Van Dyke Brown printing technique. Gail uses this nineteenth century photo process combined with twenty-first century digital photographic techniques to create images (often incorporating elements from nature) that are rich and mysterious.  

At four o'clock you can head over to ArtSpace Maynard and stop in to visit the various artists that have planned to be open. Are you an artist, too? Get connected with them.

At five o'clock head to the gallery. This month the ArtSpace gallery is featuring artist Valerie Maser-Flanagan's "Visual Expressions in Cloth." If you or anyone you know has an interest in fabric, sewing, quilting, graphic design and abstract pattern, then you're not going to want to miss this show. It's breathtaking. I'm not even sure how Valerie chose a piece of artwork for her postcard, they are all so beautiful.

The art scene is alive in Maynard. Come be part of it. Bring
your friends, grab a glass of wine, and make an evening of it.

Here are the details:

EVENT: “Visual Expressions in Cloth” Art Exhibit
LOCATION: ArtSpace, Maynard MA
DATE/TIME: Saturday, January 10, 2015, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.

“Visual Expressions in Cloth” Exhibit at the ArtSpace Gallery

The ArtSpace Gallery is pleased to present an exhibit by fiber artist Valarie Maser-Flanagan entitled “Visual Expressions in Cloth.” The artist, who lives in a rural setting but worked for many years in Boston, is influenced by both the open spaces and flowing elegance of nature and the tightly compact congestion and rhythm of the city. Her approach is improvisational, starting with a general idea, a palette of colors and a blank design wall.

The exhibit runs through January 30th

The public is also invited to the opening reception for this exhibit at the ArtSpace Second Saturdays art scene from 5-7 p.m. on Saturday, January 10th. Prior to this opening reception, many artists will have their studios open that day from 4-6 p.m. for you to come and see their work.

Come join the art scene in Maynard!

The ArtSpace Gallery located at 63 Summer Street in Maynard and is free to the public and is wheelchair accessible.

. Gallery hours are Wednesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
