Steampunk Jewelry for November First Friday




If you love Steampunk or if you're scratching your head wondering what Steampunk is, be sure to visit us for our November 5th First Friday!!

Jewelry artist, Kristie Brigham, of Sculpted Windows Jewelry will be debuting her Steampunk Jewelry.   Kristie's jewelry features clay faces and creatures adorned with vintage watch parts, jewels, and found curiosities.    Each piece is a one-of-a-kind, wearable piece of art, in her words:


"My steampunk and clay creations are an escape from the every day world into an imaginary one, full of intricate little vintage parts and pieces that unite to become unique little people and creatures. I can't help but smile while I am creating them... each has it's own personality, some are whimsical, some are inspired by nature, and others much more serious.   I let my hands and imagination guide the way."

 "I look forward to meeting you and sharing my steampunk and clay jewelry people.  I invite you to escape into my world of little creations, and I hope you find a special one you can't live without!!"

"Thanks Alana & Gallery 141, look forward to seeing you at First Friday!"

David Allen Harris; "In the forrest," Still...

After 12 years of shooting for the joy of composition, I was encouraged by the well-known Washington DC artist Michael Platt to exhibit my work.

Forlorn - 2010





My first shows as a fine art photographer were in DC at the semi-annual non juried Artomatic exhibition. The Washington DC Commission on Arts and Humanities purchased five of my photos as part of their Art Bank program. Encouraged by my early success I continued to participate in Artomatic.

The collection of works in this show represents the best of my nature shots from Artomatic and new works shot in local parks and watersheds.

October Featured Artist - Ken Vallario


            Ken Vallario is an artist from New Paltz, NY.  His work has shown in New York, Philadelphia and throughout the Northeast.  His work is an eclectic attempt to take the fractured elements of 20th century modernism and recombine them to form a constructive dynamic style suitable for our 21st century ambitions. Ours is an age of deep complexity.  Vallario responds to this complexity by attempting to re-imagine the centrality of the human being in a cosmos that gets more and more illusive with every advance in knowledge.  The struggle for identity and meaning in a world of parallel universes and post-modern deconstruction signals for Ken Vallario that the act of painting has become the highest form of philosophy.  As the anxiety of influence increases every day so does the need to transcend this with an alchemical breakthrough.  Commitment to humanity and an optimism about the future drives these works, as does a desire for honest one of a kind works, that stand alone, as fully developed expressive works.  Some of his more recent works like the one above, The Heart of Markets, are accompanied by essays that delve more deeply into his philosophy of 21st century art-making.  So we hope to see you at the opening this Friday October 1st.  You can see more of his works at www.kenvallario.com

A World Behind Glass

     Christie Twigg, owner of Forever Green, has her own definition of terrarium. For the month of August these miniature worlds created in re-purposed glassware have graced a high top in the gallery.  Each piece is unique and offers a serene escape from the daily grind of a fast paced city life.

     After ten years of working in the horticulture industry, Christie ventured into her own business last October. "Terrariums are my artistic release, although gardening for many is an artistic expression in it's own right." She is hoping that her terrariums are seen as such and is working toward the goal of owning a shop in the near future.

September featured artist : David Bottini, paintings "for Gabriel"

River Glow, acrylic on canvas, 24 X 36"

As Joni Mitchell sings “We can't return we can only look behind from where we came” and it is that glance back to where he came that enlivens and engages David Bottini’s dreamlike landscapes. His crystalline focus and saturated palette draw a viewer into a place that arouses a specific memory and time for each viewer. This group of paintings evokes the power of memories; where you look and are entranced, where your sharp-focus memory of a past time merges with the paint and canvas in your immediate view.
David Bottini’s grouping of “Seasons and Light” paintings are on exhibit at Gallery 141 on Water Street in downtown Lancaster.
Before dedicating his full time to his studio work, Bottini earned the title of “Master Teacher” during his tenure as Visual Art Department Chair at the Madeira School in McLean, Virginia.
Mr. Bottini's work projects his passion for landscape and atmospheric effect, as inspired by his Italian grandfather, Gabriel, from whom the artist derived his painting signature. David’s classic realism is honed in a focused studio process and his goal of capturing a specific moment of solitude within nature aligns his approach within the Romantic tradition.
Summer Morning Shimmer, acrylic on linen, 30 X 40"
