Are you superstitious?

Whatever your beliefs, we believe you’ll enjoy our new exhibits for October.

Superstition & Belief,” juried by Joseph Cavalieri, is an exploration of the spiritual and the occult. Art League member artists brought a lot of strong work, some of which is getting us in the mood for Halloween:

This month’s solo exhibit is seasonal in a different sense. “Each Day is a Celebration” by Sheila Harrington documents a year in the world through the prism of small still lifes. Each painting shows the different foods, flowers, and drinks that graced the artist’s table over the course of a year. You can follow along from spring to summer to fall to winter, enjoying the different sight sensations as you go.
