Then it’s on location for a quick trip up Main Street for Second Saturday at Gallery 220. It’s a hive of 31 artists buzzing with patrons and all-around good vibes. Steve talks to metal sculptor Spencer Gray, Jr. about UFOs, his uncanny resemblance to Matthew McConaughey, and other oddities. Gray, trained as a 2D cartoonist and jeweler, creates whimsical creatures and assemblages from found metal objects meticulously screwed together with nuts and bolts and a good dose of love.
We wrap up with an interview with artist of the month and competitive sailor Amy Kramer. Kramer’s work is deeply rooted in her connection with nature and the coastal environs. Kramer’s large-format acrylics on canvas combine bold colors, nautical themes and repeating patterns to create a dynamic landscape transporting the viewer. For fundraisers she cuts a large painted canvas into smaller paintings, while others get stretched onto giant frames.
