GALLERY CONTINUES TO BE CLOSED
Because the Coranavirus is so perfidious, and because we humans are equally inconsistent in observing those behaviors which would ensure our health (personal and communal), we have decided to delay the reopening of our gallery until at least December. We have delightful, insightful, and nurturing window show planned for each month through December, so please take a moment over the ensuing months to wander by our gallery windows and feed your spirit. And please, help us all be safe.

CLIMATE OF CHANGE (Homewood Photo Collective)
Raging fires, floods and hurricanes, a crippling pandemic, lives in economic free fall, unabashed racism, systemic corruption—We find ourselves in a world unhinged. This exhibit by members of the Homewood Photo Collective is an attempt to represent, in diverse ways, a response to our changing world.
To view more photographs from this show, please visit Climate of Change
Also, please join us via Zoom for a virtual gallery talk on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 at 7pm-8:30pm

BRIDGING THE RIFT (9th annual resident artists show)
Continuing our Inside-Out window show series...
THE HEART IS A BRIDGE When you take out the knife of anger and mistrust that is pointed at your heart, your heart becomes a bridge. If you can undo attachment, craving and fear, you begin to see the other shore, the shore of liberation. [Thich Nhat Hahn]
So many of our conversations and discussions today begin with “In these uncertain times...” And they are, uncertain, for a whole raft of reasons – economic, political, health and medical, environmental, social, and historical. We have been wondering, in our studios as we work and in conversation with each other, “What is the artist’s responsibility in the light of these realities, these vexing complexities?”
As we shared examples of the artwork we intended to show and then considered a name for this, our 9th annual exhibit together, we looked at two major themes, one centered on the idea of Covid-19’s impact on the way we live – Alone Together, Reaching Out from Solitude, and the other – Bridges, Bridging the Gap, Bridging the Distance. In the end we decided on the final show title both for the alliterative repetition of the ri sound and to the highlight our shared belief many of the challenges we face are construed as disagreements, as rifts, which will be healed if only we are able to view these issues as common challenges rather than as points of opposition.
It is often said Art Builds Bridges. That is the artist’s work, to take a look at the world, to see it in a fresh or original way, then to lead others to the understanding that each time we look, it is a first time, each time we enter into a conversation, it the first time. While each of us at Homewood Studios is committed to a specific way of expressing what we see, all of us share in the desire for our work to be transformative, to create bridges.

FEEZE DESIGN AND BUILD SHOW
Two MCAD graduates we got to know while they were still in school and showing their work in group exhibitions in our gallery, Kiley Frieze and Sam Busco, design and build custom furniture. Go to their website, Freeze Design Build, and you will see their work has a sculpturel quality which, we feel, lends itself to a gallery viewing.
More details about this interesting show as we get nearer the date.

MARION ANGELICA: new ceramics
Master ceramics artist, Marion Angelica, has had several shows in our gallery... all well-received and highly successful. Recently she spent time ass a visiting artist studying porcelain in China. We have no doubt her new work will be equally professional, inventive, and deeply satisfying.
Details will follow anon.
