Jan Weinshanker and Judith Wright present Two Women, Two Friends | Recent Works with an Opening Reception on Saturday May 5th from 3:00-6:00pm at the Jane Deering Gallery, 19 Pleasant Street, Gloucester.  Works by the artists will include new paintings, works on paper, glass mosaics and ceramics. Recently, Wright’s paintings and mosaics have been focused on local street scenes, local birds, and still lifes.  In her words,  ‘I live by the ocean and although I rarely paint the sea, the colors around me and the magnificent Cape Ann light always influence my work.’  Weinshanker’s paintings and ceramics come from a primal place.  ‘I explore the spiritual language of art.  My hope is for the viewer to ask what story might be held in each work.’  The exhibition will continue through May.  Gallery hours Friday- Sunday: 12noon - 5:00pm or by appointment at 978-283-9430 and 617-803-9101.
