The gallery hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Over 50 gallery artists present artwork using identical 12” x 12” canvases. The resulting paintings, drawings, photographs, sculpture, and collages vary drastically, highlighting their diverse strengths as artists. The pieces have been priced at $200 to be accessible to first time collectors.
Anna H. Walter’s work is based on symbolic personal expression, and encompasses both internal and external experience. In the On the Wall installation, Walter states, “My idea incorporates the way in which birds seem worry-free, without fear, and have the ability to take flight if need be. As a human being, I would like to adapt to that concept and be able to let go.” Her work explores her personal physical trials, New York City, and the spiritual. She uses a variety of materials, including found objects to create exciting layered mixed media pieces and whimsical sculptures. Walter incorporates invigorating color with her work, creating pieces that transport the viewer to magical places and experiences.
