Main View Gallery & Studio’s spring exhibit, “Two for the Show,” will open with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. today at 73 Main St. in Oneonta. It reflects the artistic visions of Mark Stafford and Tim Sullivan, studio artists at Main View Gallery & Studio.
In a media release, Main View Gallery curator Zena Gurbo said, Stafford has “a natural instinct for line, color, whimsy and design.” For this exhibit, Stafford used wooden dollhouse components to create a series of small, architectural-like sculptures that are at times, reminiscent of set designs for theater.
Sullivan, a performer by nature, has appeared in several Tri-Town Theater productions. His love of pop culture, especially movies, musicals and television, inspired his series of brightly colored paintings of iconic shows. In the release, Gurbo said “Sullivan’s love for his family is mirrored in the shows and families that he portrays in his art.”
The opening reception will feature refreshments and a spring inventory sale. “Two for the Show” will run through May 30. Hours for the gallery are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Wednesdays and Fridays and 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursdays, and by appointment.
