July 2 – August 2, 2014

An exhibit of varied works from Nicole Daviau, Mary Carroll, Sharon McCartney, Bobbie Salthouse, Lynne Adams and Andrea Zax.

Six local artists have teamed up to celebrate the common thread that flows through their artwork. The natural world and the setting of the Pioneer Valley unites and inspires their work. “Sticks & Stones” offers six individual perspectives inspired by pebbles, leaves, thread, scraps of fabric, and the fall of sunlight on trees.

Each artist, working in a different medium, will illustrate the influence of the natural world on their work. There will be wool stones from Daviau, torn clay bottles by Carroll, textile constructions created by McCartney, mixed media/assemblages from Salthouse, paintings by Adams, and weavings by Zax.

The exhibition opens July 2. There will be a combined opening and artist reception during the Amherst Art Walk on Thursday, July 3rd from 5-8pm.  The show can also be viewed Monday – Friday 10-6pm and Saturday 10-4pm until August 2nd.
