Carlton Gallery opens 29th Mid-Summer Exhibition

Carlton Gallery begins its 29th Mid-Summer Exhibition with an opening reception on Sunday, July 24, from 2 to 5 p.m.

All are invited for an afternoon of viewing fine art in all mediums, while enjoying community spirit and hors d'oeuvres. Many of the gallery artists plan to attend to greet visitors and art patrons.
The 29th Mid-Summer Exhibition coincides with the Avery Tour de Art on Saturday, July 23, featuring a retrospective exhibit of the art of Warren Dennis, called "Then and Now," a collection of his work spanning many years, which runs through Aug. 23. An artist's reception on Saturday, July 23, from 2 to 4 p.m., affords one an opportunity to meet Dennis.

New paintings fill the gallery with varied subject matter, styles and color, including Charlotte Foust's non-objective abstracts, Kate Worm's watercolor/gouache female figures and Andrew Braitman's uniquely textured landscapes.

Vae Hamilton's spirited horse paintings, Egi Antonaccio's contemporary landscapes of mountain scenes, nature's splendor rendered on canvas by Roy Nichols and Jossie Fox Nichols, vibrant, colorful acrylics with simplified figures by Marion Cloaninger, along with Helen Farson's paintings rendered with a European flair are a few of the paintings on exhibit for the 29th Mid-Summer Exhibition.

The gallery's collection of blown, cast and assembled glass sculptures by John Littleton and Kate Vogel, Greg Fidler and Fred Mead bring an added aspect to the three-dimensional art in wood and clay on exhibit for the exhibition.

Carlton Gallery exhibits an extensive collection of fine jewelry by designers Mia Katrin, Carol Francis Goode, Laura Fly, Tana Acton and Don Haywood for this exhibition. Necklaces, bracelets, pendants and earrings crafted in precious and semi-precious gemstones set in 22, 18, and 14 gold and silver, along with fossils, crystals, multi-hued pearls and beads set in contemporary, cutting-edge designs can be found.

The gallery also features the work of two new designers, Judith Goldstein and Barbara Burnstine. The 29th Mid-Summer Exhibition runs through Sept. 15.
