GMS exhibits “Elephant in the Room”
“Elephant in the Room” Opening at Gallery Main Street
Gallery Main Street features a new exhibit of original art approximately every eight weeks. Each exhibit opens with a Saturday evening reception that features music, an opportunity to meet the artists, refreshments, and more. The Opening Receptions are free and open to the public.
“Elephant in the Room” is opening March 10th. This exhibit is inspired by this definition: “Be inspired to create artwork that defines a very large issue that everyone is acutely aware of, but nobody wants to talk about. Perhaps a sore spot, perhaps politically incorrect, or perhaps a political hot potato, it’s something that no one wants to touch with a ten foot pole. Sometimes [the] pink elephant in the room.”

- Solo Show #1 -Deadline April 22nd, opening May 12th
