PRESS RELEASE: Opening at Edgewater Gallery TONIGHT! Middlebury

Edgewater Gallery is pleased to present its first ever sculpture and mixed media exhibition, formally opening on Friday, August 26, from 5-7pm. Come explore the cool elegance of Joe Gitterman's bronze and stainless steel "movement" sculptures; the provocative, contemplative contemporary collages of Erika Lawlor-Schmidt (a reincarnation of Marie Antoinette, for example); dangerously precious nail & eggshell creations by Jennifer Maestre; large-scale, rusted and stately, reincarnations of playful jumping jacks from David Tanych; quietly profound Shaman wall structures by Pat Musick, and much more - including raku fired ceramic chickens by Eleonora Lecei, glass window structures by Terry Zigmund, and found object sculptures by Charles Gibbs.

Also on display throughout August is young phenom

TJ Cunningham, whose impressionist portraits have garnered him wide-spread recognition, and whose new collection of landscapes perfectly exemplify the last golden moments of summer.
