It's official and here are the details! Do stop by for a drink with us Saturday from 5-7 p.m. and meet all of our wonderful artists!

artstream gallery at 56 North Main Street in Rochester are pleased to welcome three diverse artists into their gallery for a two month exhibition entitled "Dwellings" exhibition opening on Saturday October 11 from 5-7 p.m

All of the painters have an illustrative background and this show is filled with a strong sense of individual graphic style. All of the artists will be attending the opening.

Amanda Woodward, a native of Edmonton, Alberta Canada and award winning illustrator will be flying in for the exhibition opening on Saturday October 11 from 5-7 p.m. Along with Amanda is her fellow Canadian, Melanie Ford Wilson of Toronto. Melanie's paintings along with her illustrative work has been included with such clients as Target, Loreal, Olay, Johnson & Johnson, Aveeno, the Four Seasons Restaurant, The Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology and the New York Restoration Project. Mike Lewis, a painter and illustrator from Portland, Oregon, now from Ashland. New Hampshire will round out the main gallery's group show with his whimsical paintings of birds, their environments and their love of headphones. His take on painting leans towards the whimsical illustrative with a great nod towards cartooning. Mike has been shown across the nation with his works in sell out shows at Blue Bottle in Seattle and has shown at Hive, L.A.

Alongside the show Dwellings we are introducing Zoe Pawlak's work. Zoe is a from B.C. Canada and her work has been celebrated all over North America. Where We Were and Are are emotive landscapes that are done from a mixture of memory and imagination that conjure up our sense of situating ourselves where we currently are based on where we have been and the physical and emotional landscapes we have traveled. Where we Were and Are considers the accumulation of places we have been and those experiences that commit us to the place we now are. We have three of her larger canvases on exhibit and are thrilled to welcome her to the gallery.

All the work is available online from October 6th and will be shipped at the end of the exhibition, November 29th but can be purchased right here in our shop!
