New Era Gallery in Vinalhaven will open our mid-summer show on Saturday, July 16, featuring work by Andrew Anderson-Bell, Charlotte Nekola, Adam Osgood, and Cristy West.   A panel discussion with the artists will be held in the Windy Way Barn at 4:30, with an opening reception from 5:00 – 7:00.

Andrew Anderson-Bell’s love of the water, be it a bright summer day on the Thorofare or dusk on a coastal marsh, is apparent in his pastel landscapes. Charlotte Nekola is a poet, who in her photographic work assembles a story using words and images.  Adam Osgood’s contemporary photography exhibit in the Windy Way Barn will focus on works that condense time, altering our understanding of familiar places. Cristy West’s abstract mixed media works include richly layered paints and drawing.

The gallery will host a reading by Charlotte Nekola from her recently published book of poetry, Della Who, on Sunday, July 17 at 7:00 p.m. in the Windy Way Barn.

The exhibition will run through August 3.  Summer gallery hours are Monday through Saturday 10:00 – 5:00, Sunday 11:00-2:00.  For more information call 863-9351 or visit
