Alan Soffer at Gander Gallery art & objects in Manchester Center

Manchester art gallery, Gander Gallery art & objects, will open a solo show exhibiting the work of abstract expressionist artist Alan Soffer commencing with a reception August 10  from 5 PM – 7 PM.  On Saturday, August 11, Alan will conduct an interactive gallery talk at 3 PM.  All are welcome. This show runs through August 24.

Alan Soffer, fresh off an exhibit at the Delaware Museum of Art, will display new work where his use of paint and wax are presented in perfect harmony with the legacy of  the abstract expressionist vision.  Alan has been making art since 1973 in a variety of modalities.  His work as a teacher and curator continues to augment his primary passion for abstract expressionist painting that began in 1985. 

While in Manchester, Vermont, Alan will conduct a sold-out three day workshop at Gander Gallery beginning Sunday August 12, 2012.  To quote Victoria Donohue, Philadelphia Inquirer 2003, “Soffer is a serious artist with a truly poetic gift for making his paintings coalesce into visions of quite remarkable beauty.”  Alan Soffer has exhibited at Gander Gallery art & objects since our opening in June 2011.
