Change is in the air. Summer is a time to embrace the new, spend time outdoors and shake things up a little bit. At Adah Rose Gallery we will be rotating our exhibits every three weeks and invite guest artists to participate as well as gallery artists.  Shows will be curated by current and former interns and visitors to the gallery.

Main Gallery, June 9 – July 29: The 36th annual Montpelier Invitational Sculpture Exhibition.

June 9 – July 29: Fran Abrams, Library Gallery.At first, Abrams’s pieces suggest the fluidity of fabric, but are actually polymer clay. A man-made substance, polymer clay begins as blocks of solid-colored clay-like material that doesn’t need water to soften. Unlike clay from the earth, polymer clay can be blended like paint. Math and geometry also play a large role in his work as baked clay shapes must fit together on the canvas. Abrams revels in the math required to create this art combining both left- and right-brain experiences.

July 1-30: Barry Goldstein, Resident Artist Gallery. After a career running an accounting recruitment agency in DC, Goldstein sold his business to pursue art.

Studying figure drawing, painting, and sculpting with distinguished artists, Goldstein developed skills with materials and techniques, explored new creative processes, and began to see our physical and non-physical world anew.
