In the past, there has been interest expressed in smaller works for the holidays, so that’s what we have done. Over the last few weeks, The Gallery at 14 Western Avenue has been rearranged to help you find just what you need. Much of the first floor is dedicated to “Small Works.” Most pieces are 20” x 20” or smaller and have been grouped by artist.

“Layer by layer, I apply metallic paints and glazes of all colors over the metal leaf of gold, bronze or silver. Over and over I add and take away, revealing the beauty beneath by contrast,” shares Valliere. “I use a Venetian plaster knife or my trusted sander to break through and carve in, exposing underlayers and creating texture and depth.”

One statement, shared by Kinkead, perfectly conveys the thoughts of all three artists and the gallery as a collective group. “The pieces in this show are moments of stillness and movement… all inspired by patterns and events over this past year.”
