"Transient" is now showing at Fountain Street Gallery until May 27. The exhibition is themed around the moments of stillness found in the continuous flow of time. The show features the work of encaustic and mixed-media artist Mary Marley and photographer Rebecca Skinner. Mary Marley has manipulated oils, paper cuttings, and encaustic painting to create full, layered images out of disparate fragments. The photographs by Rebecca Skinner of abandoned buildings portrays their beauty and immerse viewers in their history. "Transient" encourages viewers to explore the quiet moments they find in their own lives. There will be an opening reception for "Transient" on Friday, May 4, from 5:00pm-8:00pm, during which violinist Olivia Czech will be performing from 5:00pm-6:30pm.

Multiple Exhibitions at AVA Gallery and Art Center
in Lebanon, New Hampshire through May 25

AVAAlysa Bennett, "Diva," feathers, sticks, 36" x 40"

On view through May 25 at AVA Gallery and Art Center are four solo exhibitions. "A Change of Horse" is a show by Alysa Bennett, whose career inspiration and artistry have been of subjects that bring movement and mystery. Horses have been a core subject for the artist for many years and are shown in multiple mediums of drawings, prints and sculptures. The show by portrait artist John Kenyon, whose paintings are a tribute to those who have inspired and brought guiding influences, is "Life Lessons". The show by Nicholas Gaffney, "Orbiter," features the photographs that he has taken as an "Orbiter," or, in his words, "someone that searches and observes over the surface of the things." His photographs explore the environments they depict while remaining distant and removed from them. The mixed-media show by Jay Mead, "Re-Purposed," explores the nature and use of old and recycled materials. Each piece explores how time affects these materials and changes their expression. The exhibitions at AVA Gallery and Art Center this month offer something unique to every viewer. There will be an artist talk with Gaffney on Sunday, May 5, at 4:00pm. AVA Gallery is located at 11 Bank Street in Lebanon, New Hampshire and is open Monday-Friday 9:00am-5:00pm and Saturday 11:00am-5:00pm. For more information, please visit
