ILLUMINATION :: December 1, 2018 - January 1, 2019


Lexington’s Gallery Twist (formerly Gallery Blink) presents “Illumination,” which runs from December 1 through January 1, 2019.

Lexington, Mass. — November 14, 2018 - Gallery Twist’s winter exhibition plays upon the theme “Illumination”. All art illuminates in some way, right?! So the art in this show features over 50 New England artists and more than 200 pieces representing an array of styles and subject matter to appeal to a wide audience. And yes, there will be lights and candles. Gallery Twist’s website offers a glimpse of what to expect from the event, which runs from December 1 through January 1, 2018.

The show coincides with the time of year when light features in many faith based and non-faith based events. “We are all ready for a little extra warmth and light in our lives this winter,” enthused Gillian Ross, co-owner of Gallery Twist. “On the one hand we have an oil painting that captures the warmth and tranquility of an evening sunset across Walden Pond, and on the other a colorful abstract piece that illuminates in a more conceptual way. And everything in between!”

Visitors often comment on the gallery’s unique style of displaying artwork. For some, it draws them back to every show. “I’ve never been to something like this before. This is more than just a gallery. It's an 'art experience'. Such a treat.” And another: “The beautiful setting combined with the way the gallery is curated makes this a magical experience.”

The show comes at just the right time for the shopping season. The gift of art is a great way to mark special occasions or connections, bring new life and ambiance to a room, and provide lasting memories.

“Purchasing art is a personal endeavor”, explained John Ross, co-owner of the gallery. “Some people know exactly what they want when they see it and others like to ponder. We want to give people space to make that decision. We are confident that visitors will find the piece they are looking for at an affordable price. Of course if they’ve just come to enjoy the show – that’s fine too!”

Gallery Twist is located in a 150-year-old home near the Battle Green, in Lexington, Mass.  A reception, open to all, will be held on Friday, December 1 from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. More information on opening hours can be found at www.gallerytwist.com.
