Patricia Carega Gallery will begin the walk early at 4:00 p.m. with a talk by installation artist Delanie Jenkins. The exhibit, Snow Fence, was inspired by summer trips to Wyoming during the past eight years. Jenkins became captivated by the form and shapes of the ever present snow fences that stretch across the western landscape. Her traveling site sculpture is transformed by material to play with illusion and perception.
Inside the gallery Ashley Bullard’s exhibit of new work, Look to the Laundry, explodes with motion and color. The clothesline is the subject that connects each painting in this series while it also connects us universally.

At the new Arts Center at 12 Main the theatre company Advice To The Players is presenting an exhibition entitled: Line! an actor draws the theatre (1968-2015) by John Devaney, running July 30 - September 7.
John Devaney's statement about this exhibition: "Much of my painting is about the gesture and movement of figures - human, animal, mythical, and things. The theatre is a wonderful resource for this: all through the rehearsal process, actors explore the essence of their characters through voice and body. They go through the same movements again and again. And, in their midst, I get to explore with them : the coming together of an actor with her character." John Devaney's paintings can be seen at www.johndevaney.com.
