President's Note

Hello my dear friends,

This summer is just flying by. The next art show will be "Lost and Found". See below in Call for Entries for more information. This will be a thought-provoking show.

Our first Music & Arts Festival went well considering it was the hottest day of the year. The weather scared a lot of people from coming out to enjoy the music, arts and crafts. The vendors had great high-quality items. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped setting up and working the festival. The Mexican food and beer really hit the spot around 6 PM.

The "Art of the Animals" show will continue until the end of August. Make sure you stop by and check it out before it is over. Ahimsa Haven raffle tickets are still available too. There is still time to come and support the artists and the animals.

We will be posting random photos of the artwork in our gallery on our Facebook page. So check out the artwork and if you are interested in purchasing anything please let me know. We may be able to ship the artwork.

We are doing another small works affordable art show for the months of November and December. It's time for you to start working on this show. Keep in mind that it is affordable artwork, smaller than 12 inches and less than $100.

Okay, I have more thing that needs to be said. It's about how you frame and hang your pieces. If you want to look professional and ask a respectable price for your art piece, it has to look professional. This means that it has to be in a good quality frame. Plastic frames do not hold up well and will break. If you insert screws to attach a wire the frame will crack and eventually break and fall off the wall. We see many cheap plastic frames fall off the wall.

Also, all art MUST have wire-the saw tooth hangers cannot hang on our professional wire hanging system and will risk falling off the wall hooks.

Please frame your art pieces with a good quality frame. And finish the back of the frame with paper and not all taped up with tape. It looks sloppy and unprofessional. If you are going to ask a respectable price for your work, you should make the framing complete and nicely finished. So many times, we have had to repair some of the artists frames for free.  We will now start charging for our services to fix the broken ones, or we will refuse to accept it in our show.

Don't forget that we have art critiques going on, the next one is in August. So, keep on working and see you at our next show! Take care.

Deb Giordano
GALA President

September GALA Gallery Show: Lost & Found

Kitchen Closed by L. Parmenter Hammerman

Have you found something overlooked, forgotten, abandoned, discarded, lost or just left to the elements and reacted with, "Wow, what is this story? To whom did this belong? What could be the happy or sad memories this item was a part of?" How did this pique your imagination? Did you document (photo, sketch, paint) it, repurpose it into an art object, or did you just find it visually interesting? Join us as we celebrate the love and joy of having found what was lost!

"Lost & Found" will feature original works that show things (items, spaces, etc.) that have been "lost" then rediscovered such as, the disintegrated, rusty, moldy, dusty, weatherworn, overgrown, etc., of the forgotten in our civilized world. If you are intrigued by this idea and have created an art piece in the past or can "whip one up in a hurry", you are welcome to exhibit in the September show at the GALA Gallery, 135 Front St. Winchendon, MA. Age of the artwork when created is not a factor. There will be a $5.00 installation fee for each piece, one or more pieces may be acceptable, we reserve the right to jury all entries.

If interested please contact Louise Parmenter Hammerman for further information and entry form: or call 978-874-2660 (please leave a message)

Sue Weber Exhibiting at The Gardner Ale House    

Local artist and GALA member Sue Weber will be exhibiting her art at The Gardner Ale House
starting August 6th and running until September 9th. Sue has exhibited in local art shows -
where she has received ribbons for her work - and recently at the Heywood Hospital WoundCenter.

Sue approaches her artwork in an eclectic manner, using different media to capture the creative
moment. She works in colored pencil, acrylics, inks, watercolor, graphite, and pastels (pan, oil,
and pencil), and she very often combines these. Sue enjoys creating realistic paintings of
landscapes, flowers, and an occasional portrait; however, over time she found that she needed
a creative outlet and so she began her abstract art journey. Sue applies her love of color and
form to create fun, whimsical paintings from her heart and imagination. She loves to create
abstract work that entices the viewer to have fun seeing whatever their imagination interprets -
and to get lost in the multiple layers of her visual stories.

Sue loves meeting her fellow artists. Her artist's reception at Gardner Ale House will be on
Sunday, August 25th from 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM. So come meet the artist, have some delicious
snacks and beverages, and hang in a comfortable atmosphere with great folks!

Sue can be reached via email at: or connect with her on Facebook or Instagram at: or

Cute Little Human Monsters: Observations by Donna Horn                
Nina's Nook, Turners Falls, MA

Cute Little Human Monsters: Observations by Donna Horn" is on display at Nina's Nook in Turners Falls through August 31.
125A Avenue A, Turners Falls, MA

The work in this show are paintings representing emotional landscapes and emotional creatures, expressions of what she feels at the time of their creation. Over time, she says that her work has gotten "lighter and more humorous-it used to be darker, a little scary, even. It was the angsty drama of a younger person."

Donna Horn has lived in Wendell and worked at the Wendell Country Store for 26 years; she was drawn to the forests of Wendell after graduating from the UMass fine arts program. Besides being at the helm of the town in the store, she is also known for starting what has become an annual tradition, the Wendell Misfit Prom event. The first one was in 2009, and each year Horn manages to outdo herself with the creation of a large float on which she rides in elaborate costumery.

Info:, 413.834.8800. Through August 31.

Signs: New and Vintage Photographic Prints by Peter Alan Monroe                 
The Greenfield Gallery, Greenfield, MA

Photographer Peter Alan Monroe opens his vault to reveal a treasure trove of vintage images

Signs [Volume I, 1977 to 2015]: New and vintage photographic prints by Peter Alan Monroe, curated by Kate Hunter, on view at The Greenfield Gallery through August 10.

Turners Falls photographer Peter Alan Monroe is an old-school darkroom photographer. He loves the technical side of printing-experimenting with darkroom chemicals and perfecting the tonal qualities of prints-almost more than he likes taking pictures. These days, with the advent of digital photography, he doesn't take many pictures at all.

Luckily-for Monroe and for us-he has decades worth of black and white and color negatives taken from the 1970s on that he has begun to explore with the help of photographer and master printer, Kate Hunter.

Monroe's new exhibit, Signs [Volume I, 1977 to 2015], treats the viewer to a collection of new and vintage prints gathered under the theme of signage. Curated, and in many cases digitally printed by Hunter, the exhibit offers a glimpse into Monroe's vault, bringing to life images that have never been printed before. Some vintage prints Monroe made when he still had a working darkroom will be included as well.

The exhibit runs through Saturday, August 10 at The Greenfield Gallery, 231 Main Street.

November 2 & 3 - Lisa Ober - Realistic Still Life

Artist Lisa Ober, PSA, will teach a color-filled workshop on how to create beautifully detailed still life paintings in pastel. Lisa will take a step-by-step approach through her unique still life technique, from the first sketch to the finished piece using a photo reference (provided). Short demonstrations followed by plenty of class work time will ignite a passion for still life painting as students see their colorful paintings take shape. Participants will learn the skills needed to create believable and realistic still life paintings that are loaded with impressive details. Lisa will discuss developing keen observation skills, color selection, pastel application, and she will disclose her secrets for handling difficult surfaces such as glass or metal-giving special attention to this area.

Students will get plenty of personal attention, and Lisa's enthusiasm for still life painting is as contagious for the beginner as it is for the experienced painter. Regardless of favorite subject matter, students will leave with some hot tips for making their future paintings stand out in a crowd. If those in the class aren't already in love with still life painting, they will be by the end of this one!

Wachusett Brewing Company Call for Artists                                
Wachusett Brewing Company, Westminster, MA

Wachusett Brewery is turning 25 years old this September! We are hosting a day long festival to celebrate and would love to involve some local artists. Here are the details of the event and what we are looking for:

When: September 14th, 2019
Where: Wachusett Brew Yard, 175 State Road East
Westminster, MA 01473

The Concept:
We are looking for artists to work with us to create pieces that are unique to the Wachusett Brewery Brand. This means they could use Wachusett cans, kegs or bottles. The pieces could also be made from other mediums somehow inspired by what we do at Wachusett Brewery. We are looking for things that our guests will be amazed by as they attend the concert! We would love for some of the pieces to be interactive as well as being very picture friendly.

We are also trying to get a large sculpture spelling out "Wachusett" made out of Wachusett cans, kegs or bottles created for the event as well.

Please feel free to email with any questions regarding this project. I would love to expand more upon what we need over the phone or in person with any artists who believe they may be interested!

Theme Based Exhibit/Sales Opportunity - Hey Day                               
Princeton Arts Society, Princeton, MA

The Princeton Arts Society invites artists to participate in a special art event at this fall's September 14th Hey Day event at the Mass Audubon Wachusett Meadow Wildlife Sanctuary.

Theme: "Butterflies, Bees, Beetles, and All Other Members of the Class Insecta"

Insects represent sixty percent of all the species on earth. It is estimated that there are 30 million species of insects. Insects play an important role in biodiversity. In fact, our very lives depend on insects. Many insects are at risk and face extinction. So let us give them some recognition!

Exhibit Description: Artists are invited to submit new or previously created original work of art on the insect of their choice. Insects needs to be the primary subject in all art work.  There is no media restriction and artists are encouraged to think creatively and perhaps choose an insect that does not often end up in a painting. In place of an original that you may have created and sold in the past, a fine arts reproduction of a work of art that is consistent with the theme can be submitted.

Two dimensional artists are encouraged to mat and frame their originals and have them wired and ready for hanging, however, oils and acrylics can be submitted unframed and watercolors, pastels, and other flat surface media (such as photography) can be matted and shrink wrapped and ready for presentation. Members who work in three dimensional media along with those who create jewelry or crafts of any kind are invited to submit work with insect motifs or designs. Artists may submit multiple works of art.

Participation Information: Artists who would like to submit work are asked to let the exhibit coordinator know of their intent to participate as soon as possible, but no later than September 7. Artists do not need to be present for the event. The exhibit coordinator will provide further details to all participants.

Sales/Donations: There is no entry fee, however, as this is a fund raising event. Artists with work sold during the exhibit will be asked to donate 15% of any sales. Donations will be shared with the Wachusett Meadow Sanctuary and the Princeton Arts Society.

Questions can be directed to Len Haug at
