Join us on Thursday, November 10 from 5:30-7:00 pm as we celebrate the opening of the Stonewall Gallery’s new show featuring work by the artists of Spindleworks. Wine, cheese, and light refreshments will be served at this free opening reception. The Stonewall Gallery is located within the Yarmouth History Center at 118 East Elm Street in Yarmouth.

“On Common Ground” is a group exhibit that explores place and our connection with it. Spindleworks artists delve into the subject of their favorite places and create art that takes you into their world. The art in this exhibit features landscapes from memory, observation, and the imagination. Artists created work in a variety of media including watercolor, acrylics, and drawings. This exhibit features artwork by Emma Becker, Tracy Cabral, Terri Snape, Nancy Bassett, and many others.

Spindleworks is a non-profit art center for adults with disabilities and a program of the Independence Association of Brunswick Maine, whose mission is to help adults with disabilities achieve full and inclusive lives in their chosen community. Spindleworks supports over 40 artists work in a variety of mediums, including painting and drawing, photography, ceramics and woodworking, weaving and other fiber and fabric arts.

“On Common Ground” will be on view at the Stonewall Gallery through December 31. The Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10-5.
