On March 25, the StoveFactory Gallery re-opens this spring with a bold and vibrant celebration of color entitled “Vivid: Expressions of Intense Color.” According to the Gallery Chair, Julie Alailima and AGC President Dara Pannebaker, “Vivid” will include over eighty pieces of art from all forms of media. More than 160 sub-missions from 53 artists in an open and public call for art were considered – an AGC record!
“Vivid” also included a very special Guest Juror, Martha Starr. An AGC Member, StoveFactory Artist, and member of the Charlestown community, Martha aided in the difficult task of reviewing all of the art submissions, and helped ensure that the pieces in the exhibition fit in the theme of the show and were high quality.
“Vivid” opens on Friday, March 25 from 5:00 – 8:00 PM (no reception). It will con-tinue to run the following Saturdays and Sundays (March 26 and 27, and April 2, 3 and 9 and 10) from 12:00 – 5:00 PM.
