The Gateway Gallery
A reception celebrating the Gateway Makers exhibition, a showcase of artistically innovative objects and Gateway artists’ contributions to the Maker Movement. Refreshments will be served.
Inspired by the “Maker Movement”, the Gateway Makers exhibition celebrates the artistic innovation found in the creation of objects. Gateway Makers is presented by the Gateway Gallery in collaboration with exhibition organizers Lorri Berenberg of the Berenberg Gallery, and Martha Richardson of Martha Richardson Fine Art.
Bending the boundaries of what constitutes “Art” to the mainstream, the “Maker Movement”, like Gateway Arts, fosters a community of raw creation. Gateway Arts is a “maker space,” a supportive studio environment for adult artists with varying interests and abilities to experiment and create together. With an array of materials, equipment, and technologies available, Gateway artists build, assemble, stitch, weave, model with clay, draw, paint, and innovate every day. Consisting of weaving, ceramics, fabric, and folk art, Gateway Makers is a highly eclectic showcase of the dynamic work made in the Gateway studios. The exhibition highlights the distinct style of each artist.
