The Windy Way Barn will concurrently feature the work of Vinalhaven/Budapest artist George Bartko. Bartko began his art studies early in life in his native Hungary, and continued them in the US, leading to a career as a professor of fine arts in Missouri. The show will include paintings and fine art prints, and the artist will speak about his work on July 6 at 7:00 p.m.

The exhibition will run through July 13.  Summer gallery hours, beginning June 25, are Monday through Saturday 10:00 – 5:00, Sunday 11:00-2:00.  For more information call 863-9351 or visit neweragallery.com.
