Current Exhibit Up thru June

Michael Prince and Tricia O'Neill take us up-close and far away, all at the same time. 

Courtesy of these two amazing photographers we get to study people,
places and things that are usually a blur in our hurried lives.

A Conversation with Kathleen George on How Her Paintings Emerge

Saturday, July 23, 2016
4 - 5:30 pm

From the moment that Kathleen covers a wooden panel with a layer of black gesso to the point at which she adds layers of copper leaf and scratches in texture - her painting slowly emerges. Law & Water Gallery invites you to an exchange with Kathleen George as she describes the multiple phases of her work.

Paul Cary Goldberg - Down on the Farm


Saturday, February 27
4 - 6 pm
Gallery Talk and Slide Shows at 4:30 & 5:30

Linger before and after

Law and Water Gallery invites you to an afternoon talk with visual accompaniment
as Paul Cary Goldberg presents work from an ongoing and long-term project
documenting 21st century farming in our locale.

Part of a “growing” community-farming movement, Paul's lens captures
Noah Kellerman and Sophie Courser of Alprilla Farm in Essex -
along with other like-minded contemporary farmers -
who are bridging new approaches to time honored ways.
From barn to field and seed to harvest - Goldberg captures
the toil and the bounty right here in our own backyard.

Mixed Media Compositions by Ken Riaf
These miniature vignettes, in weathered wooden boxes, set human figures in ironic, heroic and, sometimes, comic poses. The mixed media backdrops juxtapose found objects, dustbin gleanings, remnants of wood, paper and metal to explore metaphors of law, power, and place. 

The re-imagined worlds inside these constructions, shaped and repurposed from our throw-away world, allow multiple verdicts. Law and justice-themed art for home and office.
