On Friday, August 7, the exhibition “Summer Selections: Group Exhibition of Works of Art by Historical and Contemporary Artists” opens at Rolling Road Gallery in Urbanna.
Selections highlight a range of works on view at the gallery, ranging from seascapes, to shells, to landscapes, to people enjoying themselves at parties and at the beach. The exhibition features mostly prints, but also includes drawings, paintings and sculpture from the late 19th century to the present. The exhibition is on view through September 27.
The works in the exhibition include a 1935 etching of people playing in the sun at Coney Island by Paul Cadmus (American, 1904-1999); a dramatic watercolor of breaking waves by Henry Newell Cady (American, 1849-1935); a finely-detailed wood engraving of the Vermont landscape by Asa Cheffetz (American, 1896-1965); a portrait of Edgar Allan Poe in an etching by Samuel Hollyer (American 1826-1919); and other works, from landscapes to figures, by American artists Charles W. Dahlgreen (1864-1955), Kenneth Hayes Miller (1876-1952), Frank Montague Moore (1877-1967), and Ernest D. Roth (1879-1964), and several Japanese prints.
Contemporary works include drawings of a strange and wonderful lawn party by Chicago artist Pat Lenihan-Barbee; a landscape woodcut of mountains with vivid saturated colors by California artist Carol Summers; lithograph scenes of Venice by Mary Ellen Lis; glass sculpture by Neil Duman; and paintings of shells by New York artist David Headley.
Specializing in fine art and antiques, the Rolling Road Gallery is open Friday and Saturday from 11 a. m. to 5 p.m., Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m., and by appointment (758-4204).
