Gallery Neptune presents the Summer Artist Marketplace
June 26 – August 21, 2010
cool art in the months of rising mercury
Gallery Neptune presents a lively and colorful collection this summer of painting, collage, mixed media and graphite art. Abstract painting has a strong presence in this exhibit with work by Duane Cregger, Ellen Hill, Greg Minah and Katherine Mann, a recent Bethesda Painting Award 2nd place finalist. Lisa Montag Brotman returns with her 12” x 12” ironic narratives and Hsin-Hsi Chen offers a new line of lamps, clocks and frames made from her finely rendered graphite drawings. Joan Belmar continues the theme from his recent Neptune spring show, with jewel like mixed media pieces which layer painted images and plastic. David Wallace, recently included in “Masters: Collage” by Larks Books, will have several of his collage inspired paintings on display. The gallery is pleased to round out our summer exhibit with naive animal paintings on aged wood planks by primitive artist Marco deChiro.
