Flesh and Stone is a collection of work by oil painter Brooke Walker-Knoblich and jewelry artist Kathleen Mistry. In this collaboration, Brooke has given us an exquisite series of female nudes. Well, almost nude: each of the models is adorned with a piece of wearable art that is Kathleen's jewelry. Does the jewelry heighten the beauty of the models? Or do the paintings add a touch of old-world elegance to the jewelry? With just the right contrast between the flesh of the models and the stones in the jewelry, we think it is both!
Friday, Sept 6, 2019, and the first Friday of each month we'll be open until 9 pm with munchie reception goodies, beer and wine.
Join member and represented artists in the gallery for the featured show opening and visit our neighbors Wolff Gallery and Stark Street Studios on your Art Walk.
Join us Sunday, September 15, Noon - 2 pm for casual “artist hang out time.” Visit with the featured and member artists, ask them questions, all while munching on brunchie-type foods. Let us treat you to juice, coffee, or a refreshing Mimosa. And we always have a special gift for the first dozen or so visitors.
The event is ridiculously free (and you do need to be at least 21 to enjoy the adult beverages)... and there will be adult beverages.
Gary Hirsch and Scot Cameron-Bell October 2nd - 27th, 2018.
Opening Reception: Oct 4, 6 - 9 pm
Gary Hirsch-Artist Talk & Reception: Oct 13th, 12 - 2 pm, talk: 1pm
Our October show features the brand new works of two fantastic artists...

A Look Back at August’s Events
August started off with the First Friday Opening for “Closer to Home”... art by Nicole Curcio and Bridgett Spicer.
August 11th, Sidestreeter, Bridgett Spicer, gave a talk about her artwork which explained her approach to “Closer to Home” as well as the symbolism in many of the pieces.
Below are some random Instagram photos from the month... just because.
Did you know that Sidestreet Arts offers Layaway?
“What’s New at the Gallery?” You Ask...

Our Small Works Gallery has expanded... We’d like to welcome these wonderful new artists to our represented artist roster.
Off The Wall...
I can’t remember ever having a dream in color; all my night-time visions seem to be in black and white... when I can even recall them. Last night... last night’s dream was so vivid, so strange! I awoke right away wondering what it meant... the polka dots on a creamsicle sky and the blue-green trees, if they were trees. There was a shadow of a mysterious man in a top hat. Was I supposed to meet him? What message did he have for me? None of it made sense, but I felt like I was at a rainbow’s end, expecting something wonderful to happen. I woke up smiling.
