The mid-summer show at New Era Gallery is entitled “Island Boats Homes and Harbors” and will feature the work of painter Esther Garcia Eder and ceramic sculptor David Riley Peterson. Eder’s colorful and joyous oils and watercolors of familiar island locales, often seen from atop the hill where she maintains her studio, speak of her love and deep appreciation for the island. Peterson, who has spent summers on the island since childhood, shows his lifelong love of boats and the water in his ceramic sculpture, a range including representational dories, shipwrecks, and fantastical mythological vessels.
The show will open on July 15, and run through August 2. The gallery will host an artists’ talk and reception on July 15 beginning at 4:30. Summer gallery hours are Monday through Saturday 10:00 – 5:00, and Sunday 11:00 – 2:00. Please visit our website for a complete schedule of shows and events.
