From the press release:
Touchstone Gallery continues the tradition of sharing its space by presenting the work of 37 area artists during the month of August. This MiniSolos@Touchstone artists exhibition fills two perpetual community needs: that of giving emerging, artists the rare opportunity for exhibition space in top-notch downtown gallery, and that of providing collectors access to work they don't yet know. The new voices in this exhibit offer viewers a range of imagery from the serene to the vivid to the provocative.
A small companion show, Summer Sampler, includes a variety of works across all media by Touchstone Gallery members. In these uncertain times, it is more important than ever to foster a thriving local arts scene. Support your local artists and join us for MiniSolos@Touchstone and Summer Sampler from August 4 - 27, 2011.
