I am so thrilled to be a part of this amazing group of artists.
Our Gallery Grand Re-Opening was a wonderful event.
We couldn't have done it without the hard work and dedication of our gallery curator, Claire Achilles! Thank you, Claire, for all the time and effort you put into making this a very special evening for our guild and the community. Your smile is just one of the many reasons we love you!!! The spinach calzone you were cutting doesn't hurt either. ;)
The hall looked beautiful as we awaited the arrival of our guests.
The artwork was arranged by artist on the exposed brick. The hors d'oeuvres were fresh and delicious, and the cool studio was a welcome respite from the heat wave outside.
The jewelry counter was a popular attraction.
The bracelets and earrings by Claire Achilles were a main temptation for guests
as well as fellow guild members.
The specialty necklaces made with local seaglass and other found objects
were designed and created by Gail Brothers.
The notecards feature photography by Judith Potter.
More photography by Roland Gauvin and
matted original watercolor paintings by Jerry Aissis.
Such a variety of mediums featured by the talented artists of the Arts Guild of Woonsocket.
Watercolors by Jerry Aissis.
