For more information on this exciting new gallery located near the major intersection of 8th and H Sts, check out our previous coverage and read about the Gallery's plans and mission from portions of the press release reproduced below.
“One of the main goals of City Gallery is to provide quality art that is accessible to everyone. Our pieces are very reasonably priced allowing anyone to purchase original work” says Phil Hutinet, director and partner at City Gallery. “There is something for everyone—watercolors, oil paintings, prints, photography, ceramic art, sculpture, glass work, even engraving.”
The gallery represents over 20 local painters, sculptors, photographers, engravers and printmakers. Every year, all artist members will display their work in a group show. The gallery will then host solo shows by individual members monthly. Over the summer, the gallery will host an annual juried show which will be open to both members and non-member artists from around the region.
The Grand opening of City Gallery on March 6, 2010 will feature works by all of the City Gallery members: Geoff Ault, Gina Clapp, Ellen Cornett, Marilyn Christiano, Sheryl Denbo, Nancy Donnelly, Jill Finsen, Will Fleishell, Tara Hamilton, Martha Huizenga, Tom Kenyon, Gayle Krughoff, Lynne Mallonee Schlimm, Liz Lescault, Anne Oman, M.M. Panas, Sarah Porter, Tom Pullin, Ronnie Spiewak, Wally Szyndler and Cissy Webb.
“In my experience, people hesitate when investing in their first piece as they are fearful that they may overpay. Very often I hear concerns over the valuation and the quality of what is being sold. We can help with this” says Director Phil Hutinet. “We can also help you with everything you need from selecting the right hanging system to installing lighting to showcase a collection in your home or office”
