Gallery 51 opening set Thursday with works by 12 artists

Gallery 51 in downtown North Adams, a project of Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, continues operation through October with a new exhibition opening. A celebration of the newexhibition will take place Thursday evening (September 22) at 5:00 p.m. at the gallery. The event is open to all - invite your students.

A description of the new exhibit follows:

This latest exhibition features new work from twelve artists living and working in North Adams and Adams. The artwork in this exhibition varies in scope and includes drawings, paintings, prints, photographs, sculpture and video. The artists will be present at the reception and refreshments will be served.

Artists and artwork in the exhibit includes, Nick Zammuto's "Spoonbox," a kinetic sculpture that playfully responds to an original piece of music composed by Zammuto, a musician and member of the acclaimed band, "The Books." Additionally, Brandon Graving, a long time North Adams artist presents three series of original prints on paper. Through a multi-layering of texture, color, and material, she creates a watery dream world that is somehow eerily familiar.

Kay Canavino is a professional photographer based in Adams. Canavino's stunning photographs shine light, both literally and figuratively, onto the beauty that exists within the darker sides of nature. Weronika Zaluska, a new addition to North Adams is displaying her ceramic sculptures along with drawings. Zaluska's all white, intimate sculptures are a curious melding of personal touch and search for beauty through absolute forms. Also on view is the work of Sean Riley who is Gallery 51's Artist in Residence. His paintings and drawings can be viewed in the exhibit as well as in the studio at the rear of the Gallery.

Gallery 51, which is open on Fridays, 1-6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to - 6 p.m., and is staffed by MCLA's students who work alongside artists and gallery manager Sean Riley.
