Artwork by The Gallery@First Parish Team

The Gallery@First Parish is entering a new church year and as our first exhibit, we are featuring the work of the team that curates the different shows each year.  Our art embraces watercolor, printmaking, photography, drawing, as well as sculpture.  Usually the committee uses our work as place holders during the summer, but as there is so much talent on our team that never really gets seen, we decided to feature our art as a beginning show.

Pattern and Form

Join us for food, music and art during downtown Maynard’s Artsnight on Saturday, September 7. Gallery Seven presents Pattern and Form, an exhibit by artists Betsy J. Constantine and Carol Rissman of Bedford. Carol Rissman is a Resident Artist at Harvard University and her love of textures and patterns in nature can readily be seen throughout her work. She first creates handmade ceramic tiles and then uses an array of techniques such as printing, painting, impressing objects, and carving to achieve her artistic vision. Rissman utilizes a color palette of terra cotta, white, and black to subtly intertwine abstract designs along with depictions of nature to produce pieces of work that are both serene and meditative.
