LAST GALLERY WALK OF THE SEASON
in Center Sandwich on Friday, August 19
The galleries of Sandwich will once again be open after hours from 5 to 7 p.m. for the final gallery walk of the summer season. Join Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery, Sandwich Home Industries, Surroundings Gallery, The Village Green Café & Market, Advice to the Players and the Corner House Inn for an evening of culture and cuisine. Stroll around Sandwich on a summer evening taking in the rich arts and crafts that our businesses exhibit. We will have refreshment for you at each stop. A dining discount will be offered by the Corner House Inn for those who visit each gallery.
Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery will be featuring an exhibit of paintings by artist Anna Jeretic entitled the Language of Branches. A printmaker and a painter, Jeretic’s work is delicate and exact while not without whimsy. This exhibit is about her fascination with the shapes of branches and the script that those branches create. In her paintings and etchings she endeavors to bring out their various expressions.
Many you are familiar with Jeretic’s animal etchings captured on trips to Africa. Like the animals the branches are delicate renderings of the nature the artist adores.
Also on view are Everywhere Bags by Katy Clark with paintings by CC White, sculpture by Cecily Clark and sketches by Philip B. Parsons We look forward to seeing you Friday evening, August 19th.
Surroundings Art Gallery will be at 12 Main Street through August 31st. Works from many of your favorite artists adorn the walls. New to Surroundings this year is Craig Pursley whose paintings of northern New Hampshire capture the natural beauty of the area. We also have Folk Art, Wood Carvings, and Stained Glass panels available. It has been great to be back in Sandwich for the summer.
Be sure to visit the Village Green Café & Market, Sandwich’s newest business. Owner’s Nick and Elaine Vazzana have created a wonderful atmosphere where clients can sip espresso, cappuccino or cafe latte in the company of their friends or lap tops. The coffee machine itself is a work of art. On the walls, Nick Vazzana’s paintings give the place the feel of an art gallery.
Sandwich Home Industries is busy as ever this summer with a new collection of traditional and contemporary crafts from over 150 juried artists. Pottery, glass Lamps and shades, furniture and jewelry are all on view. Fiber items such as hand -woven scarves, table linens and sweaters are also part of their large collection. A mainstay of Sandwich shopping, it is always fun to see what is new at SHI.
Finally after an evening of art and craft step into the Corner House Inn for a cool drink and delicious dinner prepared by the Corner House staff. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming in the pub, in the dining room or on the terrace. Friday evenings live music in the pub is an added attraction to all that the CHI has to offer.
The galleries of Sandwich and The Corner House Inn look forward to welcoming you on Friday, August 19th!
