Four for Four

“Aquamarine & Aqua Glass Cluster Ring” by Lilly Barrack.

Edgewood Orchard Galleries will host a public reception for the opening of its fourth exhibit of the season on Aug. 9 from 4 – 7 pm. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served in the gallery courtyard. The exhibit will run through Aug. 27.

The exhibit will feature artwork by painters Ken Schneider and Fred Somers, glass artist David Lindsay, and jeweler Lilly Barrack. The featured artists will present short talks about their work at 5 pm in the gallery courtyard.

Schneider’s paintings are heavily influenced by nature and many consist of small, local waterways and their surrounding topographies.

Somers’ oil and pastel paintings, known for their peaceful sensitivity, reflect themes from the land. Whether in intimate views of grass, rocks and water with reflections of light and sky, or in spacious vistas of the countryside he seeks to share the hidden places of nature.

Lindsay creates hand-blown art glass lamps and vases inspired by the sea and nature with movement and flow in their many shapes and designs.
