Inner Thoughts Is February Exhibit At River Gallery

Monday, January 28, 2013

Inner Thoughts will be the February exhibit at River Gallery, featuring the works of Jan Kransberger, Iantha Newton and Carol Pelletier.  The exhibition features the three artists exploring the human psyche as it attends to nature, self-reflection, and memory.

There will be an opening reception with the artists on Friday from 6:30-8 p.m.  The snow date is scheduled for Saturday from 2-4 p.m. 

Ms. Pelletier's landscape paintings in oil and wax on paper use sweeping horizontal lines and layers in earth and water tones in response to the striking, complex landscape of coastal Maine.

Ms. Kransberger's glass figures use fused glass and color with copper and sterling silver elements to create dramatic, at times exaggerated, harmonious, or playful forms.

Ms. Newton's paintings emerge from memory, depicting panoramic landscapes. Using oil on wood panel with canvas, her frame-within-a-frame technique results in sculptural, dynamic surfaces.

The event is free and open to the public.  River Gallery is at 400 E. Second St. in downtown.
