VALENTINE'S DAY COMMISSIONS

Mandy Carroll-Leiva is available by appointment to discuss custom jewelry made just for you. Select your metal (18k gold, sterling), and stone (diamond, sapphire, moonstone, tourmaline, garnet) in a specific price range and Ms Carroll-Leiva will create a custom piece for you. From rings and earrings to necklaces - created in time for Valentine's Day. A perfect, thoughtful gift.
KNITTING DAY AT THE GALLERY
SUNDAY TO BE DECIDED...
You're invited to join us! During Chester's Holiday Market we'll be celebrating the market theme of "All Hat Day" by knitting away in the gallery. Limited space. Free (although, we're happily accepting cash donations for our scholarship fund benefiting the arts in CT public schools).
There's no official project (or instruction), just a nice group of knitters at various levels of expertise doing various projects. Come by for a short visit, or stay as long as you'd like. Refreshments will be served. We hope you'll slow down during the madness of December and join us in celebrating the Holiday season - it's sure to be a fun time!
We'll also be collecting unworn hats (or freshly knitted hats!) for Safe Futures in New London, CT - a shelter for victims of domestic violence. Many of their clients leave abusive situations with only the clothes on their backs, so they need warm clothes, and hand knits also make good Christmas gifts. The Lyme knitting group knits for them every year and we're extending this tradition. If you'd like to make a donation, please deliver to the gallery on of before December 14th. Janis Witkins, professional knitter, owner of Two Hands Wool and friend to the gallery, has graciously offered to deliver our hats and other pieces.

JEREMY INNESS ZIEMANN
EXTENDED THROUGH SUNDAY, NOV 16.
Please join us for the closing reception and artist talk with Jeremy Ziemann - our 2014 Solo Artist. Ziemann's new series of works are light sensitive structures that are "captive forms" meant to be explorations of atmosphere and light experience. The medium of cast urethane has been meticulously researched and tested - to the extent of designing a hyperbaric chamber to aid in the creation of these forms.
"Ziemann has achieved a sense of light and color without physically lighting his work. I have yet to see any works in contemporary art with this subtlety of illumination from within. This new series is extremely complex in process, but doesn't show this; Ziemann's work retains a simplicity and pureness. It's very refreshing to see work that portrays color and gradation of tones in such a direct, yet atmospheric way. I left the studio with excitement for him, the work and even my own work."
