If you have not yet visited Gallery 529 in Littleton, MA, you should check it out! The gallery contains three rooms of art, four if you count the consignment area. There are two rooms dedicated to the work of the member artists, with about 30 different artists represented. When you visit you will find two dimensional art that includes oils, watercolor, pastel, encaustic wax and photography. Three dimensional art and fine crafts include wood, fiber, jewelry, glass, pottery, wool, needlework and soap.
A third room in the gallery is reserved for monthly art exhibits, featuring solo artists and group shows. For information about upcoming events such as opening receptions and calls for art, check the gallery's website, http://gallery529.com/ or Facebook Page, https://www.facebook.com/gallery529com?fref=ts
The local artists who sell their work in the consignment section of the gallery round things out with a variety of art, including lathe turned wooden bowls, quilting, beaded bracelets and little sea glass pictures. New items are always being added so come back often and visit.
Once you have seen all of the art and met a few of the artists, you may be inspired to sign up for a workshop. You might learn something new, or "brush up" on some art form that you already have experience with. Look for examples of the workshop projects hanging in the gallery. All of the workshops are led by local artists and artisans.
