FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
“A ROOM WITH A VIEW” AT GALLERY TWIST
Feb. 8 – Mar 3, 2019
Lexington, Mass. – With its new exhibit, “A Room with a View”, Gallery Twist invites visitors to enjoy the diverse work of eight artists. Each room in the Victorian residence that houses the gallery, offers an insight into the distinct style, process and body of work of an artist. Gillian and John Ross continue to display their shows with a distinctive style that draws the viewer in and creates a new way to experience art.
Gillian Ross, gallery co-owner, pointed out, “A Room with a View offers the viewer an intimate view or the artists’ works. Each room feels like one is entering the artist’s world in which one gains a greater appreciation and understanding of their work. We enhance this experience by placing objects near to works that echo a theme or detail in the piece. Visitors really enjoy this aspect of what we do. As always, everyone is welcome to visit the gallery, whether they are looking to buy or just to enjoy the experience that Twist offers.“
During the show, a couple of artists will be offering a talk or demonstration. Gretchen Warsen, an abstract artist, entitles her talk, “I like it, but what is it?” On another occasion, Lorraine Sullivan will be on hand to share how she incorporates found objects and historical finds to create narrative 3D works of art. Please see the gallery’s website for dates and times.
The artists featured represent a variety of media and styles including: acrylic painting, linocut, pastel, etching, woodblock print, mixed media, and collage. Some artists work realistically, some more abstractly, and all work in a variety of sizes. Art pieces on display number over 150 and cover a variety of price points.
All participating artists are from New England: Ann Eldridge, Kathleen George, Alex Gerasev, Larry Grob, Hiroko Lee, Betsy Silverman, Lorraine Sullivan and Gretchen Warsen.
John Ross, gallery co-owner, explained, “Some people come to the gallery open to fresh ideas for their home while others know exactly what they want for a particular space. Either way, we are here to help and ensure the art buying experience is successful and enjoyable.”
“A Room with a View” will run from February 8 – March 3, 2019. A opening Celebration is on Sunday, February 10th, 2:00 - 5:00 pm, (with a snow date of February 17th).

About Gallery Twist
Gillian Ross is the creative force behind gallery twist. The pop-up gallery typically runs for three weeks before morphing back into a residential home. She and her husband John decided to open gallery twist in their yellow Victorian home at 1963 Massachusetts Avenue. The gallery displays an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary artwork on two floors of the home including the large foyer, living room, library, dining room, a double bridal staircase and upstairs hall.
Ross has extensive experience curating art exhibitions. For the past nine years, she has been Gallery Director of Grace Chapel’s Art Gallery in Lexington, a role in which she will continue to serve. A printmaker and painter, Ross was also an artist member of Depot Square Gallery, which operated in Lexington Center for 28 years.
Despite the grandeur of the home, the Rosses plan to set a more relaxed tone in gallery twist. “Shopping for art can be an intimidating experience. We want to change that by creating a very welcoming environment for visitors and by offering original artwork at a variety of price points.”
