Previous Executive Gallery Exhibits
Fall 2023 - NGA "Letting Go" Exhibition
October 30, 2023 to January 12, 2024
This special juried exhibition of artwork by members of the Newmarket Group of Artists (NGA) responded to the theme of Letting Go. On view were artworks that explored the changes and opportunities that life presented. With every opportunity comes a decision, and sometimes that means a dream, or another path must be turned away from. In a painting, for example, each new brushstroke buries whatever lay beneath it, changing the work forever.
"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be." (Lao Tzu)
