We are so excited to offer a July full of juicy colorful art and community experiences for all ages at our ArteSana Gallery through a partnership with one of our fave local artists, Sharona Color! Based in Easthampton MA, she works across mediums and scales, from tiny drawings to huge murals. Her work begins with experimentation and play - from there, she lets color lead the way. Sharona believes that everyone is an artist and is committed to helping people unblock their creativity through her various workshops and programs. We are so lucky to bring her work and her joyful energy to Holyoke this summer for Wild Light, a showing of new works by Sharona complemented with a series of community events.
July storefront + gallery hours will be announced soon, meanwhile please save the date for the events we have planned during the Wild Light show: Opening Weekend FRIDAY, JULY 8th:
