Whether you have power or not at your place, if you need a distraction, thing about coming to the Fall Arts Salon at the Alfa Art Gallery tonight at 7PM. “United We Stand” is a juried group exhibition, inspired by the historical salons of the 18th and 19th centuries. The Alfa Art Gallery provides an opportunity for upcoming and established artists to exhibit their works side by side in a show celebrating the diversity of art. From traditional painting to abstract installations, the works of these ten unique artists utilize a broad spectrum of media to showcase the capabilities of the visual arts to express each person’s individual thoughts and philosophies. The artists, Phil Carroll, Bruce Garrity, and Leah K. Tomaino, each provide abstracted, yet realistic, views of the world with their compositions of outdoor scenes. Then, Joanie Gagnon San Chirico, Dion Hitchings, Marie Sturken, and Ethan Sherman demonstrate an abstract approach to viewing their environment, in which they utilize bright colors and geometric shapes. The remaining artists, Colleen Gahrman, Nanci Hersh, and Agop Gemdjian, all work in two and three-dimensional media to create works that tell a narrative or comment on the world around them. Exhibited together, these works create a microcosm of the diverse art world, showing that the most different people and works come together to create the culture and world in which we reside.
