Gallery summer group shows may have roughly the same motivation &mdash\; filling a gallery space during a slow season &mdash\; but they can take ma ny forms. Some revisit earlier exhibitions\, while others feature work that &rsquo\;s new or just didn&rsquo\;t fit into previous lineups. Overarching themes are not required but can be ambitious. Or it can simply be some New Great Things\, to be perused at leisure and with no more in mind than a way to see and ponder objects within a new framework. Works featured in this e xhibit\, not yet seen in the gallery\, reflect an incredible mix of ideas a nd activity combined with a number of talented\, committed and passionate p eople. Collectively\, the works create a living organism comprised of a var iety of media including oil\, acrylic\, photography\, paper\, photography a nd sculpture. This diversity\, which collides\, comments and compliments\, is the psychic magic that generates a more fruitful dialogue that will reso nate with its audience.
