What: Awry | Just Breathe

When: Friday, Saturday, Sunday, 1-3 pm September 25 – October 12, and by appointment
Gloucester, Massachusetts/USA – August 20, 2020 – Jane Deering Gallery, Gloucester’s premier art gallery, announces an exhibit showcasing experimental artist Donna Caselden and contemporary artist M. Kristine Fisher. Awry | Just Breathe, inspired by these historic times, presents two different interpretations in response to “the noise” of the current Covid19 pandemic. Awry — Nothing seems quite right in the world, everything is a bit off kilter. All pieces are intentionally misaligned and act as a metaphor for the angst and discord in today’s world. Just Breathe — As an antidote to the disarray, these works reflect the way in which Cape Ann’s transporting beauty, discovered along daily beach walks and explorations, provides comfort, healing, and renewal. Jane Deering Gallery is located at 19 Pleasant Street, Gloucester MA. Gallery hours: Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 1-3pm, September 25 through October 12, and by appointment.
