Hanson Howard GalleryWe’ve invited Jamie Newton, formerly of Ashland to create an exhibition for the month of March. Newton is a bit all over the map in terms of artistic mediums and his work clearly springs from a fascinating mind. In past exhibits we’ve shown his traditional sumi ink paintings, sumptuous landscapes that range from the realistic but imaginative to nearly pure abstraction, and sculptures, generally made from found objects that look as though they were inspired by a childhood spent with Erector Sets.They included “frost catchers,” odd mechanical lattices that are designed to attract and grow frost when left outside, and Rube Goldberg-like drawing machines, powered by wind or solar cells, that make fairly inconsequential marks on paper when left outside. Expect something chocolate related!
