Artist Amanda Barrow lays out a brightly intuitive show at Hope & Feathers Galley during the month of October. Monotype Prints and Chine-collé prints will be on display alongside a constellation / installation of wood “Shape Meditations”. 

In her recent "Shape Meditations" series, Barrow observes the request of the wood, inspired by its ingrained pathways. Barrow contemplates each piece of wood before applying watercolor, oil pastel, and the flame of a candle. The result is an abstraction that reflects the artist's guided improvisations. 

Join the artist and guests for a talk & reception on Saturday, October 18 where Barrow will discuss the works on display with artist Kim Carlino from 5-8pm. Also featured is an evening of music and art on Saturday November 1 at 4pm where Carl Clements (saxophone and flute) and Bob Weiner (percussion) will "Play to the Art ", improvising to the artwork seen on the walls. All events are free and open to the public. The artist’s talk and musical event are both supported by a grant from the Amherst Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

 

Art Walk Opening:  Thursday, October 2, 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Artists’ Talk & Reception:  Saturday, October 18, 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

“Play for the Art”:  Saturday, November 1, 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Hope & Feathers Gallery is proud to host the debut of local artist Michael Crigler's new show "REAL REALMS" for the month of November. A reception will be held on Saturday, November 8th from 4-7PM.

In his new body of work, Crigler examines non-ordinary reality. Each mesmerizing, mixed-media image is inspired by experiences and information received while in a meditative state. This exhibition is a continuation of Crigler’s work exploring themes of collective consciousness and the cosmic evolution.

 "My hope is not to only engage people with pretty paintings, but to create images that speak to them on a soul level. I create work for the inner light of all, making images that can work as portals to remind us of our true inner-connected nature." - Micheal Crigler, 2014

 "REAL REALMS" will be on display from November 4th to November 28th.
