PRESS RELEASE: Diane Gabriel and Sally Bowring at 215 College Gallery in Burlington

215 COLLEGE GALLERY in Burlington is pleased to announce a new exhibition titled, PLEASURE, by Vermont artist and photographer Diane Gabriel and painter Sally Bowring of Richmond, Virginia. The exhibition will open Friday, June 18th, 2010, and will continue through Sunday, July, 11th, 2010. All are invited to attend an opening reception on Friday, June 18th from 5 through 8 pm.

Ms. Gabriel and Ms. Bowring first met thirty-five years ago when they mounted an exhibition of their work in Moscow, Vermont. Soon after, Ms. Bowring relocated to Richmond, Virginia where she teaches painting at Virginia Commonwealth University. Despite the separation of several hundred miles the two friends, both graduates of Vermont’s Goddard College, have maintained a close relationship during the ensuing years. While never working in the same medium their current two-person exhibit is a celebration of lasting art and friendship.

For the current exhibition, PLEASURE, Ms. Bowring will be showing saturated, abstract paintings loosely inspired by food. Ms. Gabriel will be exhibiting archival pigment ink digital prints from an on-going series, titled Dreaming.

215 College Gallery is located at 215 College Street, in Burlington, Vermont. Gallery hours are Fridays from noon through 8 pm, Saturdays noon through 6 pm, and Sundays noon through 4 pm or by appointment.
