Current Exhibit - “Light Fantastic”
The Front Street Art Gallery Presents:
The Front Street Art Gallery will be a magical place from January 3rd to January 27th filled with light – natural or otherwise – sunsets, light poles, through a window. The walls will be filled with works on different papers; collages that use all types of materials; abstract paintings that will stretch the mind; and photos that have a different take on the world. Come to the Gallery and forget the cold dark days of January as you walk through a world of light!
