Interior - Walls Within

After more than a year of Covid-related lockdowns and far too much time spent isolated within our homes its time for our artists to share their creations depicting their interior spaces. Subjects range from rooms of a home or work space, looking out a window onto the landscape, inside a barn, inside a covered bridge, and a variety of other interior spaces. Diverse and creative this show has been combined with Main Street in the front two galleries for a dynamic reflection of this past year, and a celebration of now gettng outside again.

Middle Room

Main Street

Main Street

Main Street is exactly what the title suggests. The main street of New England cities and town. From urban areas to quintessential villages, main streets will be featured in this show. Come see works in which the artist represents the diversity of New England’s Main Street landscapes and streetscapes. Paintings reflect the character and distinctiveness of their location, from architecture to landscape. We have combined this show with 'Interiors' as a reflection of this past year wpent mostly inside, and our ability to get out into the community again.
